    What is what, when i enter the software, there is main controller and P330CB, which one is the phantom? Is the main controller the remote controll? Also, if i downgrade to firmwire 1.8 do i have to downgrade everything else like remote controll and gimbal and all, or can i run everything at latest upgrade with phantom at 1.8? Also do i need to downgrade mobile app? If so how do i downgrade the app?

    They are all components within or on the Vision+ The main controller is the main Vision+ board. The FC200 is the camera/gimbal firmware. The Remote Control is updated separately via the RC Assistant.

    ok i understand the P330CB is the phantom board and the main controller is the naza? googled a bit and thats what i found, is that right?

    If so do i need to have naza mode enabled for the main controll firmware to work?

    Do you know if i can just downgrade to 1.8 and leave all other updates as they are or even update them to latest and it will work with 1.8? or do i need to downgrade it all for 1.8 to work? Thank you

    I have never downgraded but, as I understand it, you just download the older Software Assistant 1.x and then upgrade from within that version of the Assistant. That's how folks are going back to the older 1.08 version of the firmware.

    Why do you want to downgrade the firmware? I, as most people do, keep the firmware up to date without any problems...
