Hey fellow flyers
Im still sitting on 1.1.6 Firmware and my P3P is flying fine and dandy.
I would however like to upgrade to the latest
Firmware v1.4.0010for all the new feature, however not at the expense of deteriorated basic flight characteristics... ie decreased range, visual altimeter probs, or compass errors..etc

If anyone has any problems with

Firmware v1.4.0010
can you please post the issue here in just a couple of words.

If you have encountered problems can you also please mention if youre up grade has been sequential or not..
ie. 1.1.6 -> 1.1.8 -> 1.1.9 - >1.2.6 ->1.3.20 ->1.4.0010


Im being super cautious because there is no downgrading to 1.1.6 ..
If most ppl are happy and have no probs with the latest firmware im jumpin on the bandwagon with u all..


cheers!


(please note that the first 2  is for &apos3P' = **Professional** model)

Have not had any issues with the actual firmware till today... But before installing 1.4.0010 you have to install 1.3.20 first, as 1.3.20 is the last FW which contains an update for the RC till now.

My P3A was working any flying perfectly fine with 1.3.20 but as soon as I upgraded to 1.4.001 the compass would not calibrate no matter what (and believe me, i've tried everything). That was two weeks ago and now it looks like it is going to have to be sent in for 'inspection' which will no doubt take months, all because I upgraded the firmware. If your happy with your Phantom with the firmware is has now and don't need any extra 'features' I would stick with it as it is!!

sorry to hear bout that mr darren,
thanks for the feedback, i really dont need the new features but would be nice to have if i ever needed some automated flights with more focus on camera control. i have been trying to get a clear black and white picture if ppl are having probs with this specific firmware..
i really wanted to update my P3P today but i think i will sit tite for another day or 2 and see if anyone else has issues like you.
Fingers crossed someone has a working fix for your problem, and u dont have to send it back to dji ..the turnaround time is damn long from what i have read.
good luck ma man

Hi Darren I have seen recently that the turn around for repairs at dji has gone down to less than a month in some cases.
A little hope for you here!

Have you forgotten about one of the features added with the 1.1.30 update:

"Added option to downgrade the aircraft firmware"
(See the release notes)

I downgraded back from 1.4.001 to 1.3.20 but it did't remove the compass issue that appeared following the upgrade unfortunately.

The results are looking safe enough to upgrade I think.

happy to report the upgrade from 1.1.6 to 1.4.010 went smooth!
did 1.1.6 to 1.3.20
then to 1.4.010.

imu calibration
compass calibration
test flight - 2mt height hover - 10 mt radius flight
everything A-OK!

whats more is that the altimeter is now reading more accurately.
and the visual altimeter is spot on too.. (was inaccurate on 1.1.6)

so props to dji for fixing many bugs.

my advice when upgrading software is be patient.. my update took more than 35 mins to do for some reason , but success in the end. i was tempted to turn off the phantom as i thought it failed but i was just working its magic at a slower pace.

anyways time to charge the batteries and enjoy some flyin..

thanks for all the help
good friends
