    Managed to just do mine on an iPad, although it did fail to start with. I think it was an issue with interference from the transmitter to the wifi. I separated the two as much as I could and it finished and updated.

    Hi, I just connected the iPad to the transmitter and powered up the P4 as usual. It told me the controller needed a software update but had to power the P4 down first. It then downloaded the update and installed on the controller. I went from 1.6 to 1.8. Hope that helps but do ask any specific questions.
    For the drone updates I always use the DJI Assistant 2 app on a PC.

    In response to your question about 1.8, I flew 4 batteries today, one prior to 1.8 and the other three following the install of 1.8. I couldn't tell any difference between the two. The P3P operated just fine in both ATTI mode, GPS mode, and a couple of F-mode functions. Wind conditions were between 10 to 20 MPH.

    Hope this helps.

    Cheers

    I updated it to 1.8 today with my Android DJI Go App for my Phantom 4. After installing, the downlink became unstable and the display garbled from time to time. At first I thought it was just with my goggles connection, then I found out the same with my phone screen as well. Tested it back home and still found the video downlink unstable. Refreshed the drone firmware again but to no avail. Finally gave up and downgraded the firmware of the controller back to 1.56 and that solved all the issues. If the past experience is to go by, do not upgrade the firmware of a controller before you up grade the firmware of the drone. But on this occasion there is no upgrade for the drone firmware.

    I upgraded my P3A last night through the DJI GO app in the iPad Mini, flew 3 batteries today, and everything seems to be working fine so far...

    Still no update. DJI GO 3.0 android is noticing i have 'latest firmware'.... but i have still 1.6

    Is there a way to manual push update 1.8 to RC?

    Update:
    I tried to uninstall and install again DJI go on two Android devices and they do not want to recognize firmware versions both on P3P and RC.
    There is N/A in bird and rc firmware fields, both DJI go version and serial number are showing correctly.

    Update 2:
    I tried to press 5-10 seconds this button to RC downgrade. I have in fields Equipment and Firmware versions: downloading... and this downloading is hanging.

    Any suggestions?
    Have someone 1.8 file for RC (i would upgrade through usb)

    What triggers this update? A particular version of DJI GO? I installed the RC update and it is now requiring a bird update.

    Think the update had to do with the New Mavic perhaps.
