I;m about to update from 3.6 to 3.12. What all do I need to do? When updating the Phantom assistant from 3.6 do I need to redownload the drivers? Dose the camera need updating? I know these are dumb questions but I want to make sure its done right.

The smartest thing to do is the remove the old assistant program and download all new from DJI. The Windows driver is the same. I would also date the camera firmware. Easy enough to to do. Be sure to read the read me file as you have to rename the.bin file for it to work.  Take your time and after upgrading re do the calibrations as recommended. Before first flight do the compas calibration and get good satellite lock. Small short test flights after the upgrade until you are confident all is working well. Have a nice day and enjoy flying..

Thanks for the step by step instructions. Do you think it would be a good idea to run to motors with the props off for about a minute just to make sure they respond to Tx commands. Thanks.

That will give you a warm fuzzy feeling that the two are communicating and working together. I ell also check my wifi and camera sometimes so to speak on the bench to see that all are working. Makes me feal better when I fly.
