    After a firmware update, I cannot get the remote update to take. It downloads but after rebooting it says it needs to update again.

    Anyone else experience this?

    Have you removed the update from the card?

    What do you mean by "remote"? What update are you referring to?

    What firmware version is this? I'm guess what you mean by the controller is that your display device is showing that the drone firmware still needs to be updated? When you updated the drone did you look at the results file to see if there were any issues? Can you copy/paste the results file here?

    Yes, several people in the last month or so have reported this happening to them as well. You may have seen some of the threads by now, but in case you haven't here is what I got in a search. I haven't read through them, so hopefully they'll have something useful for you. Good luck!

    The drone updated successfully with the latest update posted on 6-15-16 (sorry not in front of machine). Now when I try to fly, my iPad is connected to the remote controller and the app is telling me the remote needs to be update. So, from the app, I press the update firmware and it successfully completes it. It tells me to reboot the controller. After it is rebooted, it tells me the firmware needs to be updated.

    This is where I'm stuck.
