    I hit the start upgrading button. The bird was beeping for about 2-3 minutes and then stopped. Still had these on the screen.

    Hit Start update, all will be done. Keep bird off to avoid interference.

    You're missing a bunch of steps (see my link above). And, only the RC firmware can be installed from the DJI GO app.

    How do I know what firmware is on the drone. I DL'd the latest bin to the memory stick. Inserted into drone. Camera light is solid green. I checked for the text file for success and nothing is there.

    In DJI GO, look in "General Settings" --> "About".

    Your aircraft is not updated. If you do not see a log file on your memory card, the firmware did not try to install. Double-check my instructions above to make sure you didn't miss anything.

    Ok I went over your link again. I tried something different though. I downloaded the bin file to the memory card and another bin file came up when clicking the first bin file but it had .cpgz at the end of it. I placed both of these in the memory card and the download begins and completes. SUCCESS IN THE TEXT FILE. thank you for your support!
