The release notes mentions nothing about fixing vibrations in 1.5.3 everyone was experiencing. So no fix?

I'll not be trying it until it's verified, since there's no return to 1.4 if it doesn't fix the vibration issues.  It's pretty poor if not, especially as it's effectively a one-way trip to not being safe to fly.

Can anyone verify if the problems have been addressed?

I will try it out this holiday, I have already recharged my batteries for the test, and I don’t think it could be worse than it is already.

I see that the firmware mentions ->   In cold environments, propulsion output is automatically adjusted based on batterytemperature and cell voltage. Horizontal and vertical speed is also decreased to avoid triggering battery protection.  What *specifically* code wise does this address?

I had the vibrations when I first did the update than after a few times of downgrade/upgrade of fw and and cold imu, compass cal, the vibrations are no longer there. I'm just a little apprehensive to update, thinking it might screw things up... So to speak.

Forgot to mention I lowered all the gains to 90%

From last firmware update,
[00013377][03 06][00] v2.4.0.5 -> v2.4.10.7 need upgrade.

I know that [11 00][00] is battery.
What is code [03 06][00] in the firmware? Now I know [03 06] its (MC) module.

Is there any page where I can see what all this firmware code numbers means?
Thanks.

DJI GO appiOS 2.4.3 or 2.4.2 ?

My DJI GO appiOS version is 2.4.3 and has been since 18/12 according to the App Store ?

I notice that my DJI GO appiOS version is now crashing out every time I hit the 'camera' button on the main page. I'm running iOS 9.2.

Anyone experiencing similar ? I've tried resetting the iPad Mini 2 but no change....

All a bit frustrating as I was about to hand over to the missus to gift wrap for Xmas day.....thinking that there wouldnt be a firmware update SOOOO close to Xmas......because that would be quite frustrating for all those customers opening their Phantoms on Xmas day.....and having to go through firmware update saga !
EDIT: Ok - uninstalled App and reinstalled....and we seem to be working again....bit frustrating though - maybe linked to iOS 9.2 upgrade ?

Yes, for the first time when opening the app on IOS it may shut down. Deleting the app, power cycling, then reinstalling the app will resolve it.

Ok - so my App is saying the Aircraft version is 1.5.30+ should I not expect a version similar to the bin file ie 1.6.40 ?

I open the .txt file on the SD card and its saying:
========== 2015.12.22 18:04:04 =====================
Packet: P3S_FW_V01.06.0040.bin
Result: Abort.
The firmware on the SD card is identical to or older than the current firmware on the aircraft.

Ok, so I tried the upgrade again and checked the txt file and am now getting the following:

Result: Abort.
The firmware on the SD card is identical to or older than the current firmware on the aircraft.

========== 2014.01.01 00:00:11 remo-con disconnect======

Upgrading ...
Result: Success.

But on connecting with the iOS app - I've got the following:
App: Version 2.4.3
Aircraft: Version 1.5.30+
RC: Version 1.5.70

Are these the correct version numbers following P3A upgrade to to P3S_FW_V01.06.0040.bin please ?

Hang on a minute.....that filename looks suspiciously like it should read P3A_FW.... rather than P3S_FW.. or am I clutching at straws here ?

No prompt to upgrade battery or RC at all...

What am I doing wrong here ?

Ok thanks - and NO battery update ?
Yes, this version includes a battery update. So after updating everything, you still need to install each battery and have the BIN file on the SD card and powerup only the aircraft.
The update shouls only take a few minutes since only the battery is being updated.

I must be one very lucky guy.

Bought the P3P last June.

Read the user's manual about 10 times before flying.

Performed every single firmware update (aircraft, RC, battery) that ever came out (including today's).

Never had an issue, ever. No flyouts, no vibration, beautiful videos, and an incredible pleasure flying this Phantom and fillming incredible videos. Every single time I fly it, I am truly amazed with the technology (engineering, information technology, software, hardware).

Thank you DJI for such a great product and do keep up the good work.

And yes, once in a while I go back and read the user's manual just to be on the safe side.

Did the latest firmware update tonight and all is good.

Have a great time you all and enjoy.

When you did the PS3, the batery also got upgraded.  If you have extra batteries, turn off PS3, insert new battery, and turn on PS3.  Repeat for each extra battery.

See the Battery Update info. Watch the LED diode status.
When the intelligent flight battery, update is happening, you will see the lights change from their normal blinking.
Once they have returned to a normal pattern the firmware has already completed the upgrade.

Time: Less than five minutes per battery. ;-)

Eh, that is incredibly Awesome of you to report. & please don't hesitate to let us know how it eventually goes? We are only here, to give you assistance and guidance when ever it's rquested. ;-)
I bet you do these updates on a regular basis, and enjoy the procedure just as much as I have.
Of course owning a trouble free drone, does make all the difference.
We are of the lucky majority, & have nothing to fear, or for that matter for a fix really, either. . .
Just more awesomeness, and memorable flights with 4K video to prove it. Ha

From what I gathered watching the NBC & ABC national news this evening,  there are going to be many southern United States who are going to experience a brown Christmas, without any snow on the ground, or covering the evergreens.

That's one thing I wouldn't trade. ;-)
Having 4 distinct seasons just makes sense..
