    i have a phantom3 advanced
    I have been flying for 1 year now.

    i upgraded the software many times. has some problems in the past, but not to this extend.
    CLEARLY DJI DOES NOT TEST THE SOFTWARE BEFORE RELEASE

    i recently got a notification that there is a update available for my drone
    so i continued to update the RC and the drone.
    Once the update finished, i got an error message "No Signal"
    the drone and the RC lost signal. i got no camera view
    the software tell me that it has full RC and HD signal
    i get no camera vliew


    ###### Status of the RC ###############
    # when switched on the link light is green
    # full battery
    #######################################

    ##### The software on my tablet #####
    # sine i upgraded the software on my tablet, my tablet hang when i close the DJI APP.
    # APP: 2.4.1
    # Remote controller: 1.6.0
    # Firmware: 1.8.80+
    #
    # The software on my tablet indicate to me that i have full RC and HD signal
    that is if the software open up, 9 out of 10 times the software of my tablet hang.
    DJI TEST YOUR SOFTWARE BEFORE ROLL OUT !!!!!!!
    so now i have to reboot my tablet every time i close the software.
    THIS NEVER HAPPENED WITH THE OLD SOFTWARE. !!!!!!!

    The current firmware does not support downgrade. Use a different version of firmware to downgrade the target version.

    Where can i get the old software for the RC and the drone that was stable

    I will never update my software on my drone again.
    clearly DJI does not test the software before roll out, so this grounded me.

    I had the same problem I had to redo the update several time I was super mad! Never had problems I did the drone again 1st then the remote, cycle it bothe the UAV 1st the then the radio and update cycle it as well then restart (cycle) both and hopefully it should go away. I did my copter & got it to work on the UAV quick the controller took a few times but will work I don't know why that problem happend but weren't the only one trust me. But keep try in controller paste and should work maybe not the 1st but it will keep trying. GOODLUCK any hope you fix right away.

    Format the SD card. Then download the software to your pc. The file will be a zip file that you have to extract. Copy the .bin file to your ad card. Then place the card in the aircraft. Start the p3 and wait! It may take as much as 30 minutes to update. When the light on the front of the fumble is steady green you are done. Good luck!

    thank you for the response. The way that you describe, is the same way that i use to upgrade my drone software. I wipe my SD card, then load only the .bin file on it. start up the drone. the first time it did the upgrade. then nothing else happens.

    I am super mad at DJI for screwing this up.

    Have you tried to link RC and aircraft as per video instructions?

    You are NOT describing a firmware update failure, just :

    "Once the update finished, i got an error message "No Signal"
    the drone and the RC lost signal. i got no camera view"

    Phantom 3 Advanced - Show off your world in 2.7K. | DJI
    This is the link to the zip files. Extract and paste the .bin file on a formatted SD card. Insert into the copter and turn on. When all the sounds and lights settle down you will see a green light on the camera. This will indicate the update has completed. Good Luck!

    I had the same issues upgrading Inspire 1 V2.

    These steps might help.

    1. Downgrade AC firmware to 1.8.80. (You can only downgrade to previous version). During the downgrade keep turned off your remote.
    2. Downgrade your remote to the previous firmware. To do that, keep pressed for more that 4 secs, the upper right box in DJI Go application. (I am referring to the screen that prompts to connect the camera) You will be asked if you want to downgrade. During Downgrade keep AC off.
    3. After the downgrade, most probably you will have connection with the aircraft. If not try re-linking.

    Then if you want to upgrade again, first upgrade the AC, keeping the Remote Off. Then upgrade the Remote, while keeping the AC Off.
