Hello guys, I’ve been away from flying due to medical and family issues and I know my P4 needs updating. Is the newest updates worth doing or should I stay away from them? I will have to look and see my last update but not sure if I need to update, any info would be greatly appreciated

Generally speaking you don’t need to update the firmware if the aircraft is working fine. If it’s not broke, don’t need a fix.

Definitely don't update. Switch to Litchi and forget about ever being reminded to update from DJI! I swapped 16 months ago and have made it fine.

Good luck and welcome back to flying!

Have to ageee with the latest FW upgrade with respect to the AC being more stable. I burned three batteries testing the upgrade and it appears to fly better than ever. There may have been some issues with the previous FW, who knows, but I’m a fan of upgrades once I wait for the dust to settle on others experiences.

Yes i used it on my P3 and P4 now on my P4A and Mavic. I never use the go app as Litchi will do it all and then some and does not constantly bug for updates. I find it really stable especially with the googles and Ipad mini2. I prefer androids but dji is geared for IOS so I use the mini only for dji products.

Download litchi app to your tablet or phone, there is a one time charge however it's well worth it. On your computer goto Mission Hub - Litchi

Create an account and setup a mission, when you open the app on your mobile device and login the mission will just show up in the litchi app. Or you can free fly using the litchi app just as you would the djigo app.

But why would you be using a tablet or phone with a P4P+? Are you just using the Crystal Sky as an external monitor some how?
