That "gimbal motor overload" shouldn't appear, if update required, are you sure that you have detached gimbal guard?

For update, have you formatted your sd card, put latest firmware in it and then put to drone? When sd card with firmware is put in, you can power up the drone. You can see how the update is going by looking tiny led on front of the gimbal. When it is flashing red and green its updating, just wait. If led is solid red, it failed, if solid green its done. In both cases take out your sd and put it into computer and see generated text file, if there is errors please post it here. If update is successful delete firmware and text file.

You can find latest firmware here: http://www.dji.com/phantom-3-pro/info#downloads

Gimbal motor overload shouldn't appear, it means something is on the camera that is heavy

It is my younger brother that posted at the top fyi....

We haven't actually had a chance to retry the update but will hopefully be able to do it today.

I did notice that on the gimbal there is a white bracket which we have always flown with and not caused a problem. I don't know if this is classed as packaging or not.

Thanks for the response and apologies for not responding sooner. I will post a soon as as have tried updating software again

I can't be sure but that white casing looks to be some kind of aftermarket gimbal protection. Did you by any chance purchase the P3 second hand? If it is some kind of guard (and I definitely don't have one on my P3) then there's a possibility it might be a contributing factor to the problems you're having.

Please watch this video and try again. If you have problem extracting files, download winrar or 7zip to extract files.
