    Received a new P3 Advanced in July. Do I need to install all of these firmware updates consecutively or just the latest one?

    Phantom 3 Advanced Firmware v1.3.20 2015-08-04
    Phantom 3 Advanced Firmware v1.2.8 2015--06-18
    Phantom 3 Advanced Firmware v1.1.9 2015--05-22

    You only need to install the latest .
    There are differing opinions on whether upgrades after 1.1.9 have improved things or not. Generally speaking 1.2.8 seemed to cause problems for many people, so that one is probably best avoided.
    Personally, I'm using 1.3.20 with no problems, and one of the advantages that came with it, is that it allows you to re-install a previous version -(only as far back as 1.1.9)- if you're not happy with it.

    I'm on the very-latest P3P and Android everything, even the couple of quickie revisions they snuck in there. Overall, I think it's all better than before. But I'm glad they added the option to downgrade, if warranted.
