New firmware give more stability on all axis, also i notice that there's no need to recalibrate FC after changing battery .

So is there any need for a hardware mod or just the new firmware handles it all?

Just load new firmware and use TMF pro tool to recalibrate it, no mod on hardware .First time flight move throtle max and left, wait until blue led lids again and fly.Disconnect battery and repower it, you'll notice that there's no calibration is needed as before.

I'm still not clear what the hardware mod is suppose to do over what the firmware update does.

There's no hardware mod.Don't worry, just try new firmware,if you don't like it just return to precedent: http://code.google.com/p/aq50-pro-mu...downloads/list

Well they even show the hardware mod on the homepage now so I am a bit curious what it is for:

Bings conversion to Engrish...
"Please note:
TMF Pro you fly ...
There is a new firmware V1.2 update
Because in order to increase dynamic stability and gyroscope temperature drift correction
Therefore this update is required to use hardware (and a resistor solder the other end and short circuit)"

ok, hardware mod is just take out a flat resistor on R21 and short circuit on R19, easy to do with small pen solder. The R21 has very small resistance.

I'm interested in the details of what the hardware mod does as well, not just what to do for it. Still seems unclear what the mod does in conjunction with the new firmware, etc.

I'm not expert on FC circuit but in my thought, swapping from R21 to R19 was like activating some hidden function on FC itself.So far on mine,there's no need to recalibrate after changing battery and stability did increase a lot.Another thing i notice is after flashing new firmware, when using TMF pro tool to recalibrate, every data on FC was changed,especially on Flight instrument.
