    I did it this morning. I would say about 15-18 minutes. Toward the end the gimbal moved a bit and then the update was done.

    Thanks, the P3 went fine but I'm have a hell of a time with the remote. It simply won't update

    20 minutes or so. The remote was quick. I didn't have a card reader so i just plugged into the gimbal.

    Hmm. How do you mean? Is the status light blue? Is it beeping at all? How are you updating it? Some controllers are having a tough time being updated from the new DJI GO app and need to be done via SD/USB.

    Finally figured out my transmitter is the newer model which updates thru the App. Drove me nuts, all is good. I wish their update instructions would have said something about that lol

    Yep. That's why I compiled a more complete set of install instructions :)

    No problems as usual, P3 took 12 minutes, and the controller via app about 2 minutes, then the other 3 batteries about 1 minute each.

    1.3.20 took a solid twenty minutes on my stopwatch. I was really glad I was out at the ranch and able to do it in the shop so I wasn't torturing the family with the DDDD-DDDD-

    Actually, the pdf that came in the zip along with the bin specifically says to use the app, and use the SD card only if the app backup fails. Takes about 5 minutes via the app once the software downloads.

    Your write, I guess I skipped over that since I was used to doing in the other way
