    My Phantom has been doing the beeping sequence for about 15 minutes and the status light on the gimbal is still flashing green and red. The gimbal just went limp and the aircraft status lights just went out. Should I stop and try again, or is everything okay?

    You could give it a while longer and then check the .txt file it generated.

    The gimbal went limp and then it came back and looked like it was running through a test or something and then it fixed itself and the update was complete. Checked the text file and it says success.

    You should be all set then, I would say! If when you've got everything up and running and it shows you're on the correct version number within the app, than you're golden.

    FYI - the beep sequence of 1 long beep followed by 2 short beeps should mean the update is complete. It will do 4 short beeps while updating and then will go to the DD - D - D sequence to indicate it's done.

    My P3 showed a continious green/yellow light above the camera after 20 mins or so, waited 5 more to be sure, switched off and checked log file, it says succes and 5-6 times abort because firmware is the same as the one installed.
    Conclusion, once the lights stop blinking the update is done., continuous Green /yellow means success, red means failure.

    Yes, what yours did is what mine did. Exactly. 22 minutes to upgrade, both birds.

    You can also look at the front LED on the Gimbal if you're ever unsure..
    Flashing Green/Red = Update in Progress
    Solid Red = Failed
    Solid Green = Completed Successfully (after time led may go off) ...

    I like the tones.. Da.Da.Da (upgrading) Da...Da.Da. Complete. Long DAAAAAAAAAAAAAA Error in upgrading
