    Forgive me if this is a completely noobish question I am new to this whole scene really. Coming from a Phantom Vision 2 then onto a Phantom Vision 2 Plus, then finally landing on a prebuilt Phantom 2 with Zenmuse H3-3D, I am familiar with the usual update process. However when I plug my phantom into USB I do find the IMU in the vision assistant software but it finds no update and leaves me on 1.0.0.4. I checked the site and downloaded the gimbal assistant software however that doesn't even detect my gimbal. Is there a special usb port I am just not seeing on the gimbal itself? Currently I am just plugging it into the back of the phantom.

    Hi, I believe the Phantom 2 assistant does it all now, you should see the Gimbal status on the upgrade page, cheers Mark

    Thats the thing you see, I see it in the phantom assistant but its not updating, its stating I am on version 1.0.0.4 and I know that at least 1.0.0.6 is out yet its not finding anything.

    Use Phantom assistant 3.0 (in stead of 3.2) and you will be able to update to 1.0.0.6
