    Hi Forum,

    I have successfully updated my P3A to the latest firmware but really struggling to update the controller. I have copied the .bin file over to a usb drive, plugged it into the back TX and powered on and nothing happens, just all led light up with 1 solid red with no blue light to be seen.

    I have also tried connecting it to the bird but that hasn't worked either.

    Any ideas at all, have been trying for 4 hours :( ?

    Have you tried doing it via the app?

    Also, there are several threads about this already, have a look.

    I didn't think it was possible to update via the app, do you have a link? Also, it says that my firmware is 1.2.8+, is this the Phantom or the controller? Thanks for your reply btw.

    I have also tried to update by just connecting the controller to the phantom, turning the phantom on and then the controller but all i get is a green light followed shortly by a continuous, solid, screech (beep) from the gimbal.

    Did you run into the red light and continuous beep again?
