The Steps :
1. Download the firmware at http://phantomhelp.com/Mobile/Phantom-3-Standard/#FirmwareArchive and select the fw that you want .bin file format

2. Insert the file to sd card, outside folder, and must be the only one .bin file format

3. Turn on the RC and the drone without sd card until it connect (RC and Drone)

4. Connect to DJI GO App (to see downgrade status stay at front page of the app)

5. Insert the sd card. Then the downgrade process is starting and rear led will turn to yellow and there will be beep sound from the drone (it is normal). See at DJI GO app, there will be status bar show the downgrade process. If the rear led becomes green it means the process is complete, you also can see the succes notice at DJI GO App.

6. Restart the RC and Drone, connect DJI GO App, check the FW. Finish.


I hope it can help the issue of 1.6.80 firmware for Phantom 3 Standard


NOTE : DO IT WITH YOUR OWN RISK!

And this process worked PERFECT! I had no issues with 1.6.8 but I had never tried 1.5.7 because I updated it straight out of the box. I am going to give 1.5.7 a run and see if I can get better distances! Thanks reinzneal!

I was also able to downgrade from 1.6.80 to 1.5.70+. Further downgrade to 1.4.60 was not successful:
Packet: P3C_FW_V01.04.0060.bin
Result: Abort.
The current firmware does not support downgrade. Use a different version of firmware to downgrade the target version.



I also had the "Weak Signal" Issues with 1.5.70. Will give the 1.5.70+ (whatever the + means) a try tomorrow.

It flew... but I have had better luck with 1.6.8 so I reupgraded. My bird has never had an issue with 1.6.8 but with all the complaints I figured giving 1.5.7 a shot... it was not better...maybe a little worse. Now at 1.6.8 (Fresh install ALL THE WAY AROUND. Delete app and ALL STORED INFO/CACHES etc etc). 1.6.8 onto a SD card ... put card in bird (bird OFF). Turn on controller... connect to app... turn on drone... (it will connect to app and start downgrading/upgrading on its own) and ive had great luck all the way around... 1.6.8 down to 1.5.7 and then back to 1.6.8

Do you have the bin file for 1.6.80?
I have downgraded to 1.5.70 but the problem still continues. RC Signal lost in 100 meters where i was getting 500 meters before.
I could not find the bin file of 1.6.80 to make manual upgrade.

so, I think i've solve my problem by recalibrate the remote with the aircraft  by pressing the small "link" button under the aircaft + procedure on the remote.

Today it works well.

Can you try this ?

With the 1.5.7 it must works.

Have you try to re-link the RC and the aircraft ?

By using the switch S1 3 times + gimbal switch on the left. After the Bip, you have to push on the Link button under the aircraft.

In my case it works.

Because you have to know that the Wifi is use between the aircraft and the remote to transmit data. And the phone will connect in wifi too to the remote but not on the aircraft .
