    Hi John, welcome to the forum.

    To answer your questions:

    1. There is no need to format your MicroSD card as long as you only have one copy of the Firmware .bin file in the root directory. If you do want to format it, use the aircraft to format it to avoid problems.

    2. You need to format all new cards.

    3. The aircraft should come with the Firmware already installed. Make sure you are happy flying it first. This week DJI will be issuing the latest update, I would advise waiting before updating until this is available. Also make sure that any Apple devices you plan to use have auto update of Apps turned off.

    Enjoy flying your new aircraft.

    3) Firmware updates are always optional. It's a good idea to install them after they are known to be stable. While DJI does list the major changes in the release notes on their download page, the updates might also contain other undocumented minor fixes or tweaks. If you upgrade to the latest firmware and don't like it, you have the option to downgrade to a previous firmware release.

    4) After installing new firmware on your Inspire 1, you'll also want to install the same firmware on all of your batteries. The firmware will be installed on the battery that is in your Inspire 1 when you install the firmware on your Inspire 1. For your other batteries, keep the firmware on your memory card, insert each battery, and power on your Inspire 1. The firmware will be installed when your Inspire 1 powers up.

    5) After firmware updates, I always calibrate the IMU, gimbal, remote controller, and compass. I also double-check all of my settings within the DJI GO app. I think it's better to not assume the firmware update did not inadvertently reset something.

    I thought I had missed some of your questions but you edited at the same time I was replying. However, I see @msinger has answered the extras. The only addition I would make is that some updates are mandatory but the last of those was issued in April/May.
