I had to roll-back my DJI-Go software a few weeks ago (with the great help of a few of you here) which raised the point/question.

It seems that whenever there is and update of firmware or software from DJI it is NEVER 100% working correctly, do they test it before release or put it into the market place to get the masses to do the testing?

It may be that I dreamt it one time but I seem to remember somewhere something about 'you must update your Phantom when the updates are available' this I thought I remembered as part of the warranty rules. Is that correct? What I mean is "if you are not running the latest firmware/software from DJI" and you have a problem related to the normal control of the aircraft are you still fully covered by the makers warranty? :rolleyes:o_O

Anybody know the facts (not what they think it may be).

Yes. While DJI would probably prefer you to install firmware updates, you're not required to do so.

I always suggest not to chase each and every update from DJI. If you are happy with the current version, be happy and enjoy flying. I say it cause there is a reason behind it.
