    Hi All,

    Sorry if this is a repost, but searching for my key terms tells me that the words are too common in the search box !
    The camera firmware isn't working, I've followed the instructions to the letter, trying to upgrade to 1.3.0.
    The light never flashes yellow on the camera, just goes straight to green, all my other camera firmware upgrades have worked.
    HOWEVER !, on restarting the phantom and starting the app up on my phone, instead of the live camera picture, I get a black screen with the words "firmware update ?" on it in grey writing with a blue cross !, almost as if it's got stuck upgrading.
    Any advice ?

    Mike

    Strange, on the 3rd attempt it worked. I had the vision app opened and connected this time. Now on 1.3.0G. Very odd !

    yep. same thing happened to me. i just left the update file on the card and after a couple flights noticed the file was renamed and the firmware was up to date.
