I have the two older boards right now.
I am sure I am on a short list somewhere for a newer board soon.
I have a 1E board i am borrowing and testing now.

There is better control of the mag with the newer firmware. The older boards seem to need a little bit more tweaking, but they all fly the same. With he new firmware. Well the 5611 mag is a better chip so the performance level is higher.
I don't fly on autolevel. I hover on auto level

I personally think that the EZ-connect is a great idea on the RX side, no need to buy any male to male wires.
But the side to the motors is a bit much fro me. I will be putting pins on a rev 1E board.
The extra wires kind of gets in the way of a clean install.
Other than that, I think this is truly one of the best boards and most supported FC.

As for the headfree, it works when I turn it on.
But, because i fly by the nose it is to hard for me to just let it go.

Anyway awesome, bro.
Keep them props spinning.
