    I have updated my Phantom to "Phantom 3 Professional Firmware v1.6.0040".
    Everything is done by the book. But still. The screen "overall status" say "update required".

    How do i find out what firmware the RC is?

    Just to be sure...
    RC=Remote Control?

    In the "About" tab i only find App and Aircraft versjon. (App: 2.6.0. and Aircraft: 1.6.40)

    Remote Controller:
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    ==========2016.02.07 22:01:18==========
    Packet: /mnt/usb/P3X_FW_V01.06.0040.bin,
    Result: Abort
    The firmware on the SD card is identical to or older than the current firmware on the remote controller.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Aircraft:

    The firmware on the SD card is identical to or older than the current firmware on the aircraft.

    I would delete and reinstall DJI GO, but hopefully someone who has run into this b4 will jump in.

    I've see that as well. I just ignore it and it goes away after a little while. The Phantom will fly just fine. There is no harm in ignoring it.

    With iOS you can update the RC through the app. You need to download the 1.05 FW, on a SD card and put the SD card into a reader and plug into your RC USB plug. Turn on by itself and it will update. Your RC must be pre-1.05 FW.

    I tried to update mine to 1.6 and it was a no go

    Get the SD CARD, download 1.05 and put it into the USB on your RC. Turn it on only and let it update

    Do you have the bird on? That light should never be green unless the bird is on
