Hi,
I ordered a P3S drone the other day and now it has come to my attention of some firmware instabilities.
I was wondering if the latest version, 1.08.10 works ok.

Also does it work fine with Dji Go 3.1.7 (I heard of some problems with that app version, but can be fixed with aeroplane mode or something).

Thanks very much!

Edit: I see there is a Dji Go version 3.1.8, I assume every thing is sorted out now for the app? Thanks again

1.8.10 is a stable build. It was released over 3 months ago.

I use 1.8.10 and its a vast improvement over that disaster 1.6.xx ...............

As to the Go app OP quotes ... thats all IOS so out of my league ... I'm just a poorly Android user with 3.1.5 ....

Thanks msinger and solentlife, that boosts my confidence a bit now :)
Also I've heard some stuff about 'stress marks' on the motors, anyway to reduce the chance of this happening?

The Phantom design is prone to them regardless of when made ... old or new. I had cracks start to show on one arm only a couple of months after buying ... but being a dab hand with fixing models .. I made decision to fix it myself instead of sending to DJI / Seller to just get another that will likely do same again.

So I first eased the cracks a touch with a scalpel blade and put in some PU glue. That expands with moisture and fills every crack it finds. You have to be careful to not allow it to expand and push joint apart - so it needs to be clamped or taped. Once it had set - I then sanded it back flush and then fitted metal end plates bought of eBay to give some support and protection to all 4 arms.

So far - everything going fine. I plan to remove the plates some time and check the arms under - just to make sure.

Thanks solentlife for the advice. What metal end plates did you use? Thanks again

There are plenty of sellers on eBay with end plates. Just make sure they also include the longer screws ..... the motor mount screws secure the plates and need to be slightly longer to compensate.

Note - never use these longer screws to mount motor if you remove the plates.

Must the screws to ensure nail varnish. Two flys and screws allowed

OK ... as to thread locking the screw ..... Blue Thread Lock is waht DJI use ... you'll see the blue on the threads ... and that is what I use ...

In fact I use Blue on all my models to prevent screw loosenings.

Of course I know where to buy. Shop at one bonding. Useless. If the nail polish does not work, buy it.;)
