    I updated my P2V with my mac using the Mac assistant SW. Loaded beautifully. Further reading said I need to also upgrade FW on my controller, but no Mac RC assistant. Great.

    I borrowed a Windows 8 machine, opened the RC controller and connected the USB, but now good 'ol windows can't find a driver.

    A.) can someone help me so I can get the RC controller updated?

    B.) Is it really a big risk if I can't update the RC controller??

    Did I mention that I hate windows? ;-)

    OR... if I cannot get the RC controller updated, is there a way to downgrade back to the previous version of the P2V firmware?

    As AnselA said, you just need to install the driver and the RC Assistant will work fine. DJI claims a discrepancy in updates between Controller & Vision may result in a communications failure, but they didn't elaborate. Hopefully RTH would save the day, but who knows.

    Worked! Thanks.

    I have P2V & controller updated. Not sure if I'm brave enough to update the camera.
