This question seems to come up each time there is a Firmware Update that didn't go like it should for a group of users for various reason. Today I'm going to share the answer to the question "Can we do it". The answer is Yes & No. I'll 1st explain the reason for No. If you attempt the usual method for updating firmware of the P3 and set your card up with an older firmware version, the P3 recognizes right away that the file is either the same or older and in turn aborts the process. You can try using a different card or other things but the result will be the same each time. Now for those of you that are like me and have a hard time excepting them tell you the main option is to send your unit in for repair. Well, provided you have the actual older firmware there is a way to load older firmware on your P3. You will need to remove the top cover and perform a factory reset. This will allow you to load older or current firmware. I had a number of issues come up since the the last update and DJI Tech Support said I will need to send them my P3. There is noway I will send my quad for it to sit there is a plastic tub waiting 6 weeks for the repair units in front of it to be looked at before mine. And Then all they will do is a hard reset, load the newest firmware and ship it back. At a minimum I will just wait for new firmware to be released. Or pop the top and reset. Hopefully this info will help some of you.
