I doubt yours has been upgraded. There are helpful videos here to both upgrade the firmware and check and calibrate the IMU and compass. If you have prop locks be sure to use them, otherwise make sure the blades are tight. I believe most people are doing ok now with their inspires. That being said I personally had a failure of some kind on my second flight that crashed the quad. I personally would keep it very close to home, away from people and low to the ground for the first few flights. If this is your first quad you might want to run to the mall and buy a small 50 dollar quad to practice with before you try to put this thing in the air. If you can fly that thing and hover "nose in" you will be more than ready to handle the Inspire.
