    Sorry to ask a noob question (don't shoot me down) but really struggling with updating my firmware and worried I've messed up.

    So just received my P3A and had a message in Go App that needed to update the firmware. So went to dji.com and downloaded Phantom 3 Advanced Firmware v1.6.0040 and updated the aircraft fine .txt file confirmed success. I then connected RC to the aircraft via the gimbal and noting happened. Summarily when connecting SD card to usb in the rc nothing happened. I then read that Phantom 3 Advanced Firmware v1.6.0040 doesn't include an RC update (is this correct?) so downloaded Phantom 3 Advanced Firmware v1.5.0030 and again nothing...I have now stopped trying! Please can someone explain what I have done wrong!!!

    Thanks in advance

    Can't help with the P3A firmware as I operate a P3P and a P2 (you can check on DJI's web site to see the latest firmware for the three you mention) but without question every time you do a firmware update you should perform a IMU and gimbal calibration.

    There is not. 1.5.7 is the latest version.

    Thank you. Looks like I'm up to dare then. Does each firmware upgrade come with release notes and if so where do I get them?
