Advanced Just bought the Phantom 3 Advanced. Should I update the firmware? Or just use it out of the box?

    I've heard some mixed opinions on the latest version of firmware, and I was wondering if it is okay to fly the quad out of the box with no firmware updates. The DJI pilot app tells me I need to update the camera and the aircraft itself. I don't really know how to check and see what firmware the quad is currently on. Any input?

    Thanks!

    You can check in the "About" section of the DJI Pilot app settings when connected to your Phantom. I would wait for the next firmware release if I was you.

    Awesome. Thanks again! Really excited to fly. I've been doing a ton of research, and read the manual 3 times in anticipation! :D
