Hi im new to drones so be gentle.

I have spent this weekend search for the answer as it seams alot of people are having issues with the updated firmware. I have updated the aircraft via DJI assistant 2, lastest version, i have installed DJI GO 4 via apps store (ios) and updated firmware on RC but it stuck on 99% for ages so i disconnected it and rebooted RC, the DJI GO 4 app says firmware is up to date!!! however i can fly the drone but no video feed!!! the RC flashes rapidly red / green but the drone is solid green. I have contacted DJI support but am waiting on a replay which im guessing will be to send it off.

I have heard that the IOS app doesn't see new firmware for the RC but the android version does, is this ture?

How do i install DJO GO 3 on iphone to downgrade firmware so i can reinstall latest version?

ANy other methods of sorting out this issue?

Any help will be greatly recieved.

Thanks

The Apple Store has the GO 3 app.  It's identified for the Phantom 3 if you read the info.

As to Androids, neither of mine (Samsungs) connect 'reliably' (Sometimes they will, but often they don't.) and why I went to Apple which worked well for several months.  Sadly, now the Apple iPads I have are having issues and it seems to revolve around the USB connection to the RC.  Actually, that issue seems to also be a reason the Samsungs fail to connect as well.  Could be the RC wants to act as a charger and not as a data line, but no way to stop that.  The Apples will disconnect in time while flying and I suspect it might be iOS 11.2 causing the issues.

I dunno.  Seems it works or it doesn't.  Good luck!

Have a read of this thread, there is a link to the DJI Go (P3 series) option :-

Edit:- your aircraft firmware update has most likely been good. I believe the updater may have not correctly reported completion. But the flashing green/red on RC, along with poor video on display is definately a sign that the RC needs updating to V1.9.3.

now fixed it.

I had to downgrade itunes to a previous version which also involved changing the itune library.ti file !!! then install a proxy program called "Charles", follow video in link below to download a previous version of DJI GO 4, i downloaded the first version which allowed me to install a previous firmware 1.6.0 to the RC. I then was able to update to 1.9.3 again and this time all worked fine.

Follow these websites and 100% works.
