Hi - I updated the aircraft, and believe I've also updated the RC with the new firmware.

I've got the DJI GO app on android.

I had to update the RC via an SD card - I understand older firmware versions didn't support doing it through the app.

I actually tried to update the RC a couple of times, as the light sequence didn't go as described on the update page. I found the logfile next to the .bin file reading as follows.

==========2015.09.08 00:12:51==========
Packet: /mnt/usb/P3S_FW_V01.04.0010.bin,
Result: Abort
The firmware on the SD card is identical to or older than the current firmware on the remote controller.



BUT.... when I fire up the GO app and check Overall Status it says:

"The RC is required to update, please check the firmware.....", followed by the same message about needing to update firmware via a USB disk.

In the GO app "About" I see:
App: 2.1.0
Remore Controller: 1.2.7
Firmware: 1.4.10

Any ideas anyone?

Thanks, Dave

Is there any way to verify the firmware version present on the RC?

You have to update the RC with the older versions.  The new firmware does not have the RC update in its package.  You need to download the next firmware version up from what you have and put it on a USB stick and put into the remote.  When done, do it again to get to version 1.3, which is the highest the RC can go.

You need to upgrade your RC to 1.3.2 its still on the older version.  It does not need to be upgraded again with 1.4.0.

As an aside, does this update enable Waypoints, POI etc in the app, as I don't see it?

Following should be the status after updates:

App: 2.20
AirCraft: 1.4.10
RC: 1.3.20

Update 1.4.10 has no update for RC. So, if your RC previous version than 1.3.20, please update it before updating Phantom Pro/ Adv firmware.

Following should be the status after updates:

App: 2.20

My (new) RC came with version 1.1.9+ (note the +) and 1.3.2 on the (new) bird. I succesfully updated the bird to 1.4.0010, but the RC won't update to 1.3.2 using USB.
I suspect that 1.1.9+ (with the +) actually is the same as 1.3.2, but am not sure, and DJI support have no clue.
Anyone knows?
