    No. Firmware has not been released for batteries yet.

    When DJI releases the first firmware update for batteries, you'll need to keep the firmware on your memory card and power up your Phantom with each battery installed. The firmware will automatically be installed on the batteries if needed. After that point, you can either keep the firmware on your memory card or delete it. You shouldn't need it again unless you buy additional batteries.

    Thanks Guys, I just chatted with DJI they told me to leave the .bin file on the SD card and insert each battery.. Didnt do too much. I got a txt file saying my P3P is up to date.. So I guess you all are correct there isnt any update for the batteries. Thank you !!!!

    Do you know when they will fix the 1.2.8 patch problem?
