    Hello,

    Since the new version of DJI Pilor (DJI GO) and the recent fireware update, I can't update the controller using the 3 methods.

    No problems for the drone it self, Update was like a charm with it.

    I tried to put the file P3S_FW_V01.03.0020.bin on the root of the micro SD card + USD dungle on the controller itself without any reaction of the controller.

    I tried to connect the controller to the drone without success except a long big and red signal indicate me an error has occurred.

    Tried many usb key / dongle without more success...

    Can you help me ?

    Pretty sure I read in the last app release notes that firmware updates for the controller are done via the app now.

    Just spoke to the DJI rep via email. Apparently GL300B controllers don't need to be updated. image.jpg

    I fly using a Nexus 9. To connect I have to do the following:

    Do NOT connect phone or tablet to controller with controller's USB cable
    Turn on controller
    Turn on Plane
    Turn on app
    Connect USB cable from controller to Tablet/Phone
    Should connect

    Happy Flying

    I had similar issue unable to update controller via micro sd so updated via the app on the controller worked like a breeze

    UGH... why the ____ doesn't DJI specifically state that new controller doesn't need to be updated? I just pulled out another couple of handfuls of hair for no reason. My hubby had BETTER appreciate his new Phantom 3. If not, we may not make it to #31!
