    When you hear 3 beeps and see the green light on the camera it is done, AC took around 8 mins to update and the extra battery about 1 min.

    It will continue beeping every time until you take the .bin file back off of the sd card. Once you have updated, there's no reason to keep the file on the card because the bird automatically looks at the .bin file first for an update and then beeps when done. So no .bin file = no beeping

    If beeping stops after few seconds and led on gimbal turns solid green, you need not bother.

    Krabiman, please give us the following information:
    • Which version of the firmware do you see in the "General Settings" --> "About" section of DJI GO?
    • What is the name of the BIN file that's in the root of your memory card?
    • What color is the light on the front of the gimbal while your Phantom is beeping?
    Also, please attach your log here.

    If it's like a loud alarm clock sound,then i think you bricked your bird.
    I had the same thing.Never managed to repair it so i had to buy a new one.

    Format SD card again, or better try with a new one, put firmware .bin file on the card and start from beginning again. It seems that camera can't read fw file ... SD card problems may happen. (Note: avoid Kingston SD)

    Red to green is a good sign. You should let it keep beeping.

    Per my instructions, you should ignore all other lights. The only light that matters is the camera status light. Green usually means the update completed successfully. Check the results in the TXT log on your memory card.
