Firmware help Phantom 3 Pro Please Help


#1

do you have to update firmware in succession on a dji Phantom 3 pro?

Does anyone know what firmware comes on the Aircraft new out of the box?

I just got a new Phantom 3 Pro to replace my old one and I’m having trouble updating the firmware. it keeps failing.

I tried to update to P3X_FW_V01.03.0020.bin and it failed and now every time I try to update all I get is

“Failed.
Reboot the aircraft and try to upgrade the firmware again”
I have tried several times and no luck.

And now when I turn on the aircraft all i get is a red blinking light on the led on the front of the Gimbal.

Something I should mention: I’m using the batteries from my previous Phantom 3 pro.

which have the updated battery firmware from the previous firmware updates.

could this be why its failing?

do I need to use a brand new battery with no firmware updates on it to make it all work?

any advice would be appreciated…

Thanks

If you’re currently using a firmware version older than 1.3.20, then you must install 1.3.20 first before installing a newer version of the firmware. 1.3.20 needs to be installed on your remote controller and batteries. If you’re currently running 1.3.20 (or newer), then you can jump right to the firmware version you’d like to install.

It depends on when your Phantom was manufactured. There is no default firmware version for all new Phantoms.

Doubtful.

Try upgrading the firmware again by following these instructions exactly. They are very detailed, so take your time to ensure you don’t missing any steps.
