    A friend of mine just received his brand new P3. He made a mistake installing the older
    Phantom 3 Professional Firmware v1.2.6. He flew the P3 twice but now the app shows the "upgrade your aircraft" . I am familiar with phantoms so I know how to update the
    Phantom 3 Professional Firmware v1.3.20. Format sd (FAT32-exFAT) /drag .bin file/insert sd into P3/turn it on/ then nothing happened. He open the TXT file and says identical firmware blablabla ABORT. He have tried it 3 times and it does nothing.

    Any idea ????

    Please post the TXT file.

    Also, which firmware version is displayed in the About section of the DJI GO app? You'll need to make sure your remote controller and Phantom are both powered on in order to see the version.

    P.S. - Tell your friend to join this forum :)

    Actually he did not . He followed the same steps. Somehow, after a short flight the process worked this time. Thanks

    Either I'm a skeptic or I need to add "take a short flight" to my firmware installation instructions :D

    I'm just kidding around. It's good to hear all is well -- no matter how it magically fixed itself.
