    Why is RC beeping and showing red light? I was updating firmware and kept beeping now nothing works.....really frustrated! New machine and I thought I had everything set but then kept asking for updates on camera and battery and RC. How do I start again!

    Did you let it finish the update? I did mine and it took about 15 min.

    standard or adv/pro

    method to upgrade differs ,

    one uses sd card and NO rc----- no radio - direct file transfer, sd to quad

    the other uses:
    RC on and NO sd card---all wifi, rc to quad -- no direct transfer ability

    when it asks for camera , you should see a option to allow and pick that.

    batteries need updated 1 by 1 for 1.6 so after update the quad keep sd card in and then restart with each battery
