    Hi all,
    I've upgraded my p3a firmware from v 1.8.80 to v 1.9.60 (as requested by djigo app), I've inserted sd card in the drone (with RC off), turned it on and it has gone through all the upgrading process, but in the end I had the solid Red light and a continous bip sound.
    Thinking to have failed I've checked in the djigo app and it says that I have v. 1.9.60 installed and that I don't need to upgrade! How is it possible??
    I've tried also to redo the procedure but it does nothing and the txt in the sdcard tell me that my firmware match the previous version)
    I'm very confused, never happened before
    Thx

    Make sure you erase the card and start again.
    Make sure the controller is off during update.

    To be safe redownload firmware on erased card.

    Thank you Robinb, but I've tried exactly the same procedure! Redownloaded the firmware and I've putted it in a formatted sd card, but It does nothing since it says that I am already on the latest firmware.
    All seems to work well, is it possible that the upgrading procedure was successful even if I had the gimbal Red light?
    I'm a bit scared to fly my phantom at this point...

    No... Only that the current version match the previous one and the upgrade is not necessary..

    Hi - I had the same happen. I did IMU Calibration and it fixed the problem for me. Give that a go.

    Ah ok sorry,
    No it doesn't even restart the upgrade procedure because it Says that I'm already on latest firmware
    (Even if there is the latest firmware .bin in the sd card it boots normally without starting to upgrade)

    Looking at the DJI Go App - everything is up to date. Should be ready to do.

    It makes the loud sound when it starts, but not the beeping of the upgrade,because it is not doing the upgrade..
