I found this page with older versions of the Go App, those with a PC will need to load I tunes to the computer and then update from here .  Be sure to delete the Old version of the Go app as well.  I had never seen this before  so I  cant tell you if it will be perfect , but those who get old systems may need these files  to comunicate Between the RC with Older versions of FW  and the Go app device .  Then once you get communication update to the latest versions accordingly .

nice post Donnie

This could come in handy for some folks running older FW, but it looks like DJI will require you to be using the latest version of the Go App for some of the newer aircraft FW

I have been asked in the past for it and could not find it and then today I just happen to come across this gem .  It will help those who are stuck with older FW .

Yes , I have had some users who have been given or purchased older systems and need the Older versions of the go app in order to communicate between the RC and go app device .  So  yes I agree the latest Fw on our systems will require the latest Go app's .

Hi Donnie
I understand ... I  was not criticizing you at all and thanks for posting this. Some users need to update equipment that has been setting around..  others want to live in the past   

So..... are you getting any closer to buying the Inspire 2?

I was on the beta testing team for the Inspire So, as you are  aware after updating for 1.81 AC and 1.6 RC there was no going back...  (this fact was not shared by DJI in the beginning of the beta test or I just missed it)  
Donnie, I believe software advancements are much better now and I can tell you that it fixed more things than it broke. DJI must continue to roll out changes in the NFZ maps and other requirements too. This is done using the FW and Go App. I am a senior member of the AMA supporting our hobby for over 50 years and DJI has launched a joint drone program with the AMA.  I really think this is all going in the right direction .
you would not regret updating your Inspire.

I am still not ready to buy the I2 and might wait..

All the best

I wonder if there's an old version of the pilot app around?  lol.... I'm glad I didn't jump on the I2 bandwagon.  Transport Canada has recently changed the rules making it hardly worthwhile to fly a drone recreationally.  That change has me seriously considering selling my I1.

Which hardware won't work with the latest dji Go, is the older Go software mainly meant to be compatible with older tablets and phones ?

Mostly its just for those who have older systems  ( Inspire 1 systems ) that have not been updated.  For example I had a member who  bought an Inspire 1 on e bay that had only been updated once  they were at version 1.3 on the RC and AC . When the member bought it he tried to hook up the new go app to the RC transmitter  but no joy , the newest updates to the go app would not communicate with the RC  at 1.3 so I was advising  him to  load the old version of go app and then try  to get to the new versions of FW and then update to the new go app and the latest FW for the RC and AC.
Many members are having issues with old RC fw and trying to update , I have seen this quite a bit lately , the funny part is DJI phoe help tell them to update the aircraft to solve the issue .  If the RC trtansmitter wont connect to the Go app how are they supposed to update the RC ?  and phone support had no answer, by the time I got involved the RC had been reset a number of times and  the Thumb drive for updating  ( works in a pinch but only should be used in emergencies and then  can only update to 1.6 ) would not even work so this particular member had to send it in to DJI for repair .

Yes , this was just for those who have systems that were Never updated or only updated once or twice then put away .  The latest go apps wont communicate with the RC if it is still on version say 1.3. on the RC transmitter so in this case I  would get the old go app and then  update  the RC  as far as it would go  , I would try to get to at least  RC  version 1.58 on the RC  then load the new go app and update to the latest RC firmware , this of course would only be done AFTER THE  AIRCRAFT WAS UPDATED

I may just go ahead and update to the latest , for the longest time I was up to date on everything then DJI kept sneaking things in and I just thought I would stay put for a  wee bit .

Sorry Mike , I dont have that one , go to your search engine like Yahoo and look around, some member may have an older version that you could get .   

Good Luck

More than likely you will NOT have fly away issues , but the update to the RC on version 1.5.8 made the encryption  less vulnerable to hack and mostly less likely for interference .

Yes old RC FW sometimes does not work well with the latest go apps .

Are you talking about rc signal interference being made more robust ?

Interference against atmospheric conditions or interference against surrounding wifi signals and someone attempting a hack on your signal ?

If it's more robust against the just mentioned perhaps oi should upgrade the rc to 1.5.8 and leave the aircraft on 1.6, but then you say 1.5.8 is having problems with the latest go app version...mmm...tough one..

Hello Donnie,
I'm not sure if anyone has tried downloading any of the older Apps from the site you have graciously offered, but I have found that once an an older GO app version is selected, you are then taken to the most recent version of the Go App.  Maybe it's some issue specific to my desk top computer.
I was curious if anyone had successfully downloaded an older version from the list provided, to save to a file folder for possible use later?

  EG. from the site.   You are about to download the DJI GO v2.8.3 for iPhone and iPad: DJI GO  is a free and Useful Entertainment app. Live HD View and On Screen  Flight Parameters ... Download & Try Now (127.41 MB) >

sorry abut the double post, the system was giving problems, it's just strange i've never heard of a firmware upgrade in my 17 years of rc, that would make a transmitter and receiver signal more robust.

I will double check this , my understanding was it would load to I tunes, I will give it a try later today , thanks for the heads up.

No biggie,  Yea, I was thinking the older F/W versions may be offered thru a third party, iPa4Fun (EasyPDFCombine), and  
a company called (myway) Not sure what the hitch if any is there.   : )

Its not more robust per say  but the encryption has changed making it harder to get interference from other systems on or near same frequency in the 2.4 range ,  and therefore a better signal .  
also I am not sure whre the problems start on the older FW and latest go app , I personally have never had issues and this could all boil down to user error or mebers using the wrong go app device .  I di contact a rep a t Dji ( Dji Jamie ). and he did confirm that older versions of FW will not " Jive" ( technical term I use  )  well with the latest go apps but he was not sure when the " Non Jiving " would occur .  Like I said I would just paly it safe and update to the latest FW, and as the matter of fact I am goign to update to ALL the latest FW as well.  I am no certain that the gremlins are pretty much worked out and I know the sytem limitations that are imposed and they do not effect me in any way . ( limitations like , the No fly zones,  camera minor glitches etc. "
