    Okay, I searched these forums but came up empty handed. I may not be patient enough but I can't tell if 1.4 is installing on my P3P! The two forward led's are solid red and the two aft led's are blinking yellow. NO BEEPING at all. Been about 10 minutes. Should I hold on longer....or grab a beer and start over??

    Grab a beer -- give it about 30 minutes and when the LED on the front of the gimbal mount turns solid green, it will be done.

    Beers in hand but the little green light on the front of the gimbal was green right away.

    I wonder info should have deleted 1.3 off the card when I dl'd 1.4 onto it?

    Get back if you don't get a green light. I had to go from 1.1.9 to 1.3.2 to 1.4.1 to get mine completed.

    I deleted 1.3 off of card. Restarted. Getting beeps now (DDDD-DDDD). Red/green light on gimbal.

    Fingers crossed, cold beverage in hand (I'm in Wisconsin after all!).

    The remote will upgrade to 1.3.2 for the Go App automatically. If it doesn't then you have to put 1.3.2 on a usb card reader and update it separately. The lastest upgrade calls for 1.3.2 on the controller and 1.4.1 on the Phantom

    Ha! Makes sense. I powered on both, went into GO. Under ABOUT it shows the aircraft at 1.4 and the RC at 1.3. So, this is correct?

    StratocasterDave:

    Don`t forget a IMU calibration before the first flight...

    I have a request, in the name of the Science of flying...

    Try to notice when pushing the P3 only forward, if it drifts for left..or right....or you notice something is not right...

    Happy flights!
