    I've been flying a P3P since last June so very early and never updated firmware. I now have a second P3P which is new (unboxed so far). So safe to presume that each bird has different firmware. The new bird comes with a new battery. Can anyone see any issues if I mix up the batteries? My concern is that three batteries will have downloaded the original firmware and the new one the newer firmware.

    So will the original batteries fly ok in the new bird? With the new battery fly ok in the old bird?

    Any thoughts, experiences?

    For those who will suggest upgrading the older bird with newer firmware...have not had a single issue with this bird or any flight or battery characteristics so don't want to mess with that.

    That should not cause any problems.

    The good battery FW appeared only in FW 1.6, so update your new one to at least that version and then update all batteries FW on that bird.
