I´ve got a very interesting Question here about Batterie updates.

Can anyone explain to me the Difference in updating a Phantom 3 Advanced, a Phantom 3 Professional and a Phantom 3 Standard.

As i remember about the Updates for the RC of my personal P3 P first Time i did it using the SD-Card Method.

The latest Update it did to 1.5.8 i had to use the In-App update because the SD-card method did not work.

In wich steps is the Updateprocess working if i use the App-update - Download from Server to ??? placing it on SD ??? and then shooting it to ???

It seems to to be not consistent and different from the Models.

Can anyone of the DJI-Officials here give me mor Informations about it please?

Thank you - Mike

Simple answer, Update on sd card plugged into the drone to update batteries.

So sorry i didn't grasp your questions:

In wich steps is the Updateprocess working if i use the App-update - Download from Server to ??? placing it on SD ??? and then shooting it to ???

It seems to to be not consistent and different from the Models.

If there is a battery update required then whatever firmware you updated to the aircraft will also update the battery. If you have more than one battery, then you install the other batteries and power uop the aircraft and each battery will be updated.
The app will also tell you if a battery update is required.

I bought a new battery last month.   Charged it up.  Then put it into my P3 Standard.    The DJI Go app then told me I needed to do an update.   Which I did, through the app.

It took about 10 minutes.    After which,  I powered down and restarted the drone.  Everything seemed to work just fine.   I then powered down and inserted my old battery - thinking it might need an update also.  But, it powered up with no issues, or no requests for update.

I went flying later that day with no problems, from either battery.

I'm still not following the update via conversation.  I have stayed up to date all the way through, recently upgrading to all the latest firmware listed.  The Go app updated on its own via the phone.  The P3A updated via the SD card .bin file.  There was no offer for it to upgrade via the app.

thats exact what the guy with the P3 Standard told me bofore i posted this thread.
the question was also how does that work.

so what is the workflow here?

i mean the App downloads from web, saves the data somewhere (maybe sd-card) and then updates the battery.

want to get more information about that conversation app - copter- web - sd-card ??? - store it in battery ? - delete file after success ?
