Hi may I ask if someone knows why the .txt log file updated during my P3A firmware upgrade has a 201 ...

The file in my P3 4K has the same date code though the seconds is different and the Packet: filename is different due to different P3 model and associated firmware version at the time.

I figure it's the initial power up at the factory before the clock setting got synchronized to date, time and timezone used in the aircraft. It doesn't appear to be date of manufacture.

The next record in my file has a date-time stamp that corresponds with my initial firmware update.

I know it does not make sense, it is just how it is.  To me each aircraft and system should have Unique FW numbers, unfortunately they dont.

Always triple  check the Download page to confirm it is correct.
You are fine , as long as it came from the Advanced page and that is what you own.

I think you are correct, It really can confuse pilots.  I always look at the  very bottom of the hidden file , that is the most recent .

Before updating anything  (IF  you have a NEW System) , be sure to register with DJI on the Go App First.  If you fail to do so , it can cause the motors not to start.  So register first, this will also make sure you have proper internet connection with DJI Servers.   

Donnie,
How do I register a 2nd DJI P3P on my DJI GO app?
Should I delete the original sin I no longer have that drone?
Thanks

When you are starting the system, after you install the GO App, it should ask  for e Mail address  etc.  If you are already registered .


You will do the second P3P the same as the first.  Since the GO APP is already registered it may not even ask you .

When I went from the P3P to the Inspire, it think it just asked to confirm my e mail.  The bottom line is do not start doing updates until you have gone through the basics of your system.  I always suggest to fly with what you are given ( firmware )  to make sure everything works and then do any updates.


And yes I would delete the old Go App  and start with fresh Install, this way your settings cant get mixed up . ( dont think they would but I would just start fresh )



****The reason I  posted that is because new pilots who had old DJI  systems started updating before they registered and it screws up the system preventiing motors from starting.     So I always advise to start from the very beginning , just like the original system and to even test fly with what version is given.  This way you wont get the dreaeded lock out.

I found there is a micro USB port on X3 gimbal camera. Is there any software can flash the firmware by connecting computer?

Donnie, in your initial post you have added an update :-

"RC    version 1.7.0.0  ( Now as of Aug 1, 2016, it is now 1. 7) "

I own a Phantom 4 , the RC is at V1.6. Is the update you mention specific to the P3 range, or perhaps a typo ?

I can tell you this much , never run the Go app and the Litchi at the Same time. This can cause a crash
