My standard update has failed numerous times.  Dumb question but how do I fly it without upgrading firmware?  I am new to this world so pardon the ignorance.

I read we need to upgrade the firm ware of the batteries. How do you do that?

You write that the latest version is not installed. But the part of the file you display in your post shows that the 1.6 version *was* installed successfully.

With everything turned off:

Turn on the remote controller.
Turn on the Phantom.
Start the GO app on your external device.

Once your device has warmed up, touch the icon in the extreme upper right hand corner.
Scroll the screen until you see "About...."
Touch that line and you will see the firmware version of the Phantom, the controller and the GO app.

Three minutes does seem quite short for the update to have taken place. During the firmware update, there's a very small LED on the front of the gimbal. It should alternate between red and green. Once the update is complete, the LED should be a solid green.

Hope that helps.

I read we need to upgrade the firm ware of the batteries. How do you do that?

When you accomplish the update the battery in your Phantom will automatically be updated.
If you have more batteries:

Turn off the Phantom.
Remove battery.
Insert another battery.
Turn on the controller.
Turn on the Phantom.

As your Phantom "boots" it will update the "new" battery.
Repeat this process for any additional batteries.

Make sure you always (with the exception of a firmware update) turn on your controller first,then turn on your Phantom. You might be okay if you get lucky and don't do it in that sequence. What "might* happen is - you turn on the Phantom first. It starts looking for a controller, expecting to see one somewhere so it can bind/link to it. If it "loses" the llink, you'll have to re-link your controller and Phantom (how to re-link is covered in the manual).

So, always turn on the controller before you turn on the Phantom. The one exception, like I listed above, is if you're doing a firmware update on the Phantom. Then you're cautioned to make sure the controller is NOT on. When the power comes on, the Phantom looks at the .bin file on the microSD card and starts the update.

Hope all that's not too confusing.

On updating the batteries - after the gimbal whips around like crazy and beeps loud enough to wake the dead and then stops - the battery will have been updated.

Enjoy.

hi

in the about i found the following

app   version 2.4.3
aircraft    version 1.6.40
RC version 1.5.70

it seems its ok. what was strange is that rreally the red alnd green led was flashin just someminutes and the it was solid green. i let it in solid green for 30minutes to be sure.
also the other strange thin was that it wrote the txt file at the end, not at the begining.
How lon it takes to make the baterie update? and how to know which baterie is not update?

thanks

I had several issues with the phantom ignoring the new firmware even though I was doing the way I always do it,  download zip on the mac which auto extracts.  So I tried several other unzippers and found the same issue firmware ignored by P3P.  In the end I cranked up my work windows machine and downloaded on that,  and unzipped with 7z and then it worked fine.   I have no ideas why this was and I have never had this issue before.

Newbie here. I've had my P3S for about a month with many successful flights. Tonight I finally tried the update. It downloaded to my phone correctly, but when I tried to apply it to the phantom it stopped at 64%. I turned everything off and tried again. The phantom loudly beeps constantly and the update always stops at 40%. The bin file on the sd card is corrupted so now I have no firmware file available. The only way to get the firmware file for the standard is via the app, so what do I do now? Thanks in advance.

All MAC computers went dead at midnight last night. It's merely part of Apple's plan to take over the world. Additionally, all electronic thermometers were automatically reset three degrees (Celsius) lower so as to dispel any further BS about global warming.

If you think it's cooler, it will feel cooler. Doesn't matter if you can't breathe for the smog.

Just kidding, of course. Glad you were able to finally obtain the update file.

I'll bet parks across America are just buzzing with Phantoms this weekend!

When the battery updates, there isn't much to be done. I have four batteries and, to me, the updating is virtually transparent. If I didn't know it was actually happening I don't know how I could tell.

I can't. The upgrade for the standard is only available thru the app. There is no other download available on DJI's web site.

Gdl39,
  The Pro & Adv, have a 'force update' procedure that Sploodge documented in a thread, by powering up the aircraft while holding the link button. Your P3S may have a similar procedure to force a clean upgrade. Contact DJI support via chat and see if they can walk you through cleaning up your P3S, or perhaps a P3S owner can reply if they've run into your situation previously.
