    1.5.30

    I successfully updated today. I confirmed in the GO App, and in the text file. Several hours later, I had charged both batteries and I put in the first battery to check how much history the battery had (so I can mark it as the original battery). The Go app said that the gimbal was overloaded (because I had the gimbal lock on) I quickly looked at the battery history and determined it was battery #1. Total time on, about 1 minute. Pulled it out, took off the gimbal lock and put in the other battery. Immediately the Phantom starts beeping. Beep Beep Beep Beep...

    I let it beep away for 20 minutes or so....still beeping. I don't believe its an update issue. I don't think its a battery issue. Any other thoughts on whats causing the beeping?

    What are the arm lights doing while it's beeping?

    If the firmware file is still on the SD card you may want to try removing it and restarting.

    The lights weren't doing anything. I heard someone else say that they had used an SD adapter plugged into their RC to update the RC and this started the beeping. I believe I had done the same thing. Anyway, I did put the Micro SD (with firmware files) back into the Phantom and after a moment, the beeping stopped. Lets keep our fingers crossed!

    Thank you. I had spent the whole day charging batteries and updating firmware on the two P3P's and making notes on how to do it, so I can help my friends next time, then this issue started. Thank you for the help.
