    I did the update on my P3 Pro tonight to 1.5 the same way I did my last firmware update. The txt file on the SD card say's successful, but now the aircraft just beeps, no LED's, just a beeping from the aircraft and not the gimbal. It will no longer connect to the remote either. Has anyone else had this issue, and if so how did you solve it?

    Thanks in advance.

    Thomas, I think I have read of a way to "force" an update even if bricked. I am not 100% sure on that so I don't want to give you a false hope.
    Do a few searches perhaps. If I come across anything I'll let you know.

    I searched this site and did not see it. I did a yahoo search after posting this and found the thread. It looks like the closet trick will work, after listening to the beeping for about 15 minutes it stopped and the LED's came on. Now to wait and see what happens in the next 30 or so minutes.

    Leave it doing the update and walk away. 30 to 45 minutes and it should complete and stop beeping.

    DJI says the update might disconnect the RC to the Aircraft and needs to be reconnected through the App
