Overview:
1. All-in-One firmware version updated to v1.11.20.
2. DJI GO app iOS version updated to v3.1.13.
3. DJI GO app Android version updated to v3.1.8.

What’s New?
1. Updated No Fly Zone Management.
2. For increased safety, the flight is restricted to a height of 30 m and distance of 50 m when not connected or logged into the app during flight, including DJI GO and all apps compatible with DJI aircraft.
3. Fixed an issue causing occasional ESC self-diagnostic testing failure.

Notes:
1. Make sure you restart both the aircraft and remote controller after updating them to the latest firmware. Otherwise, video downlink may be unstable. Re-link the aircraft with the remote controller if they are disconnected.
2. Please note that firmware update may reset various Main Controller Settings, such as the RTH Altitude and Maximum Flight Distance, to factory defaults. Before the update, take note of your preferred DJI GO settings, and readjust them after the update to suit your preference.
3. Requires the DJI GO iOS app v3.1.12 or later, or Android v3.1.6 or later, otherwise the flight is restricted to a height of 30 m and distance of 50 m.

If you have issues after the latest firmware then you can roll back to the previous firmware version.

How you downgrade with failed?
Usually to downgrade you need to format the sdcard, then extract the firmware xxxx.bin to root of sdcard. Then press and hold the aircraft reset button and power on, after power on sound and wait for the gimbal first tone then release the reset button and wait for the firmware downgrade/upgrade. Once the firmware update success the front gimbal light will become green color, so power off the aircraft and remove the sdcard to PC do format again and insert back to the aircraft then power on as usual.

Easy -

Have you recently upgraded your firmware and are having problems , I have not but I know a lot have and thought it was not possible to roll back a version – well you can ! No need to get a screwdriver out or remove the lid. Worth a try!?

1. Use notepad on PC or Text edit on Mac to make new text file. The text file can be empty or you can write something in it.
2. Save the text file and name it “3S_FW_DEBUG” if you have P3A or “P3X_FW_DEBUG” if you have P3P.
3. Make sure that the debug file that you saved does not have file extension (.txt etc.) If needed, rename and remove the file extension.
4. Copy the newly made debug file and phantom fw v1.9.60 .bin file to the root of your SD card. (like the image), make sure you only downgrade to the next lowest FW in turn NOT one big jump to the lowest.

1.10.0090
1.9.0060
1.8.0080
1.7.0060

5. Insert SD card to phantom, turn phantom on and let it perform the update ( or downgrade).
6. Enjoy your working phantom again .

Only the name of the debug file is important, not the content, its an empty file!!.

"For increased safety, the flight is restricted to a height of 30 m and distance of 50 m when not connected or logged into the app during flight, including DJI GO and all apps compatible with DJI aircraft. "

Does this mean if you have a wifi only iPad you can't go past 50m when outside? If so there's a lot of area's I fly where I have no internet connection even on my phone. This is a huge crippling feature if so.

Houston, I have a problem. Upgraded the firmware (yes I know I shouldn't have) aircraft upgrade success by the txt file but can't seem to upgrade the RC just a solid red light. I have reloaded the file to the DCIM folder on the card a few times. Even tried a direct link P3A to RC in this configuration the led blinked red and green. I left it on didn't turn it off, than the RC timed out after about 5 minutes and shut down.
Any ideas or do I have to send it back to DJI ?

You do the RC using the Go app - no sd card needed for this but the app does need to be connected to the internet so it can complete the rc upgrade.

Having some issues after updating the app and software. I also had to relink the control and calibrate the remote controls. I'm getting some sporadic spinning of the p3A and delayed down movement on the camera. This won't work well for smooth video. Any ideas? Need to shoot a video in the morning.

I tried compass and IMU calibrations as well.  Also getting weak transmission signals at 338 ft. Elevation and 14 ft. Distance. (Basically right above me).

Better create a thread to inform P3P/A owners to not to upgrade. So DJI will act asap.

For the most part everything is working but now noticing a slight vibration/shake in the gimbal while recording video at speed. Never had any of these issues before. Not sure what to do. Bought a P4 Pro  hoping I won't have any of these issues, until I can get the p3A figured out.

I got my refurbished P3A 2 days ago and I updated to this firmware and have had no major problems. I've flown 5 times now. Everything seems smooth with the aircraft and the DJI Go app on my google pixel. Although the app has crashed mid-flight a couple times.

If the link between RC and the aircraft is lost, simply re-link as shown a few days ago here:    Can't connect after latest firmware

Wish I'd seen this post last week as I drove an hour to the supplier (NZ distributor, Ferntech) and they fixed it for free in a couple of minutes.  It's also on page 28 of the manual that I'd previously printed and not read....

I just upgraded the firmware and it is not connecting to the drone.  In the app when I connect the controller it says it is connected to a PHantom 3 Pro. I have an advanced.  I have tried to downgrade to the previous version but in the text file it says you cannot downgrade from the current firmware.  Any help is appreciated.  Thanks!

I have tried 4 times to get this new firmware to update my drone but no luck. Now I am "downgrading" back to 10.0090 in hopes that I can at least fly...maybe later try again.  Never had an issue with firmware in my P3A but plenty of trouble in my M600...DJI is getting worse, not better

Update was successful and flights so far are all OK, but I only use Litchi (usually waypoints) and not going to test with GO due to multiple Android 7 issues I have read about on here.

Purchased my P3A for a personal long term project I'm doing and never flown outside of UK CAA Drone regulations.  i.e. out of sight or higher than 400 feet.

I have a video transmission issue, we'll sort of. When I first take off and press the "record" , I lose video transmission signal totally and app asks if I want to return to home. If I press the record button again, signal returns. If after signal returns, I press record a third time, there is no problem and video is captured. Any idea how to fix that?
