    well I wanted to put my v2+ in naza M mode today, so I grabbed the laptop and plugged her in and opened the assistant software and forgot to turn off my wifi, BOOM started updated I yanked the USB cable but it was too late, all the LEDs stopped blinking on the bird and no longer responded :( I had no choice but to plug it back in so it could update and now all the LEDs function and it connect to the app fine.

    switched to Naza and took it out for a flight just now, everything seemed fine. now im terrified with the new update installed :(

    I actually did the same thing on a camera update that was forced on us. Yanking out the usb comes as reaction right after you had just said "What the hell?!". For a piece of mind I ended up re-installing everything, then calibrating everything all over again. It just pissed me off that they would even force a update on to us like that.

    If you live in the Washington, D.C. Area, as I do (Maryland suburbs), You're doomed. Fortunately for me, I haven't upgraded yet.

    Good results so far with 3.12. I'm on West Coast so DC is meh. I think the White House crash was a shill deal anyway to instill crack down on quads in general.

    Good guess. And actually the truth. The pilot was an intelligence agency employee who had just finished attending a conference on the dangers of drones. He felt people weren't taking them seriously enough.

    I too hate the forced upgrades. But it looks the norm for DJI as they try to appease the powers that be.

    Julius717, you can prevent this from happening in the future by disconnecting your computer from the Internet before starting the Phantom Assistant application.
