    Hi Guys,
    I am new to this but have owned the Phantom 1 for a few years but with work commitments have never had it out the box etc.
    Well that's changed and I have managed to make some time and have had it out the box and have done a little flying, with some success.

    However I am guessing the Firmware is a little out of date and needs updating, I have seen some U Tube video's that talk about plugging a USB lead into the Controller, (Mine is an SR6) However there is no Micro USB connection on the inside of my Controller, I have posted a Photo to Show it. Any help on upgrading the Firmware would be appreciated.

    The second question is,
    I also have a Walkera G-2D Brushless Gimbal that has never been fitted (Still Boxed) Is there any advice and tips on fitting this and also I don't seem to have a Pitch Lever for the Gimbal on my Controller I am guessing these can be brought separately and retro fitted so any advice with this as well.

    Thanks in Advance
    James

    I know, New Baby and starting a new business it just took all my time, but now looking to have some fun with the Drone, Get to grips with the 1 and maybe look at upgrading, want to be happy with this first though.
