Hi DJI Team,
can I ask you an information about the new way to release and update the PH3 firmware.

I tried to find info about the fix and improve on this new 1.1.6 bin file but seems not exist any notice about.

I'm asking that just because for the previous FW you have left a note for each changes... and this info it's great for us.

Kind regards

I think they put it up but then took it down again as there were problems with the file naming convention.  

DJI is not instilling a huge amount of confidence  :-/

Correct, it was up .... there is something wrong with it so they took it down again.  Confidence level is very low at the moment

There's a real price being a early adoptor. The challenge is we are the customers DJI needs the most.

It's back up again.

We are human, this seems to be a stupid error (wrong file fw naming) for the DJI project team... not a big deal.
The real (big) DJI problems here are different.. like the post sale communications or the spare parts availability.

My 2 cents

Does the RC also need an update ? I understand I have to put the whole unzipped package on the SD card but the package contains only one BIN file. I presume it is a different BIN in the package for the RC ?

Ulysse the procedure to upgrade the RC it's well described on the <How_to_Update_Firmware_en pdf> file:

## Updating the Remote Controller Firmware ##
Step 1- Check Battery and SD Card Capacity
Remote controller firmware is included in the aircraft firmware update package. Use the same update package file that is downloaded from the DJI official website. Ensure that the remote controller battery level is above 50%.
Step 2- Prepare the Firmware Update Package
1. Extract all downloaded files into the root directory of an SD card or USB thumb drive.
2. Insert the SD card into a SD card reader or the USB thumdrive onto the remote controller USB port when remote controller powered off. If you do not have a SD card reader, you may insert the SD card into the gimbal and connect the gimbal with remote controller to upgrade the remote controller.
Step 3- Update the Remote Controller
1. Power on the remote controller and wait 60 seconds until the upgrade begins. Do not power off the remote controller during the update.
2. It will take approximately 10 minutes to complete the firmware update. The camera will sound a beeping sound and the Status LED on the remote controller shows solid blue to indicate the update is in progress. The Status LED on remote controller shows solid green and beeping sound will stop

Cheers

I read all of this 3 times before upgrading my Phantom. The bird itself is successfully updated (15 minutes to complete and "Success" in the TXT file).
My question is : is the RC firmware update contained in the same BIN file (contained in the ZIP package) as the one used to upgrade the Phantom (which should seem strange to me) ?

Yes, the same file gets used on the quad and on the TX.  Seems strange ... but it works.

OK, thank you gcmini.
On the PDF it is written that the camera will emit a sound when updating the RC. So I presume the P3 should be powered on... but what if it has not been linked to the RC ? (iOS user)

Very confusing - the app (android) sometimes mentions updating firmware - is that in addition to the longer procedure described or does it replace the sd procedure?

the instructions say you update the remote controller.  How is this done?  I assume the SD card is plugged into camera port.  How is the remote updated?

========== 2014.01.01 00:00:12 unsynchronized ======
Packet: P3S_FW_V01.01.0006.bin
Upgrading ...
Result: Success.

Updated the P3A bird, took 2 - 5 minutes not 25

Step 3- Update the Aircraft
1. Ensure the remote controller is powered off and then power on the aircraft. Upgrade will begin automatically after aircraft is powered on.
2. It will take approximately 25 minutes to complete the firmware update. The camera will sound a short pluse of "D-D-D-D" beeping sound to indicate the upgarde is in progress and sound a “D---DD” beeping sound to indicate the update is complete with success.
3. Check the upgrade status by opening the “.txt” file that is automatically generated after the update. The update is successful if the text “result: successful” is in the document. Try upgrading the firmware again if the text “result: failed” is found or the gimbal sound a long beep sound.
Around 2 minutes to update the controller.

I updated my P3 Pro as per instructions and no issues.  You don't need to have the quadcopter on when updating the controller even though the instructions say the camera will beep when updating the controller that's a type-o.  they mean that the controller itself will beep.

It took about 10 mins for the quadcopter and about 3-4 mins for the controller.

Updating my copter only took like 30 seconds, and then "D-DD" changed to "D-D-D". It says "success" in the txt file, but I'm a bit confused since it wasn't remotely close to 25 minutes.

What is new in the last firmware release? what bugs were fixed? what is the "changelog"  ?
Can anyone from DJI provide that info please?

My computer does not have a port for the SD card on which to download the firmware update. Is there an alternative?
Never mind. Dumb question. Will pick up cheap card reader.

My P3 Pro kept disconnecting the video and even more when recording 4k. I did the firmware update this morning and no more dropouts.  I'm using a Nvidia Shield. Hopefully the disconnects are gone for good.
What an incredible machine, I had several Phantoms and I'm very impressed with the P3.
