    I trolled our forum pages looking for info about the latest falcon firmware and founded limited information, but located something on the falcon forums (https://falconchristmas.com/forum/index.php/topic,10515.0.html) with a link to this gitup page of David Pitts where he places the firmware for all the falcon boards. I have updated all my falcons v3s to B022 and bootloader v2. Following David's install guide was easy and took about 2 mins per board to do.

    My boards have been running pixels for over 24hours with no issues from xlights.

    The info display on the falcon now has a bit more information.

    Anyway, the only issue I have found is my voltage on v1 is 6 volts, but my meter says it is 5.1v at the pins of V1. The V2 is correct with the power supply.

    I think I read somewhere, probably the falcon forum, that this is a known issue. But I cannot remember if there was a solution to it.
    If it concerns you maybe have a look over there.
