    The update failed, like it stopped? Describe exactly how you went about it.

    I would download the file to your sd card and load it directly to the drone through the camera then do the same to the rc. See if that works.

    DJI does not post P3S firmware. It has to be done via the app. Have you tried to shut down everything and start over?

    The app downloads the firmware to the memory card. So, if you can find the BIN, you might be able to manually install it by copying it to the memory card. It wouldn't hurt to try it anyhow.

    Did you see the banner about firmware update on top of DJI Go app when you turned everything back on? Or is the phone still not connected to the RC? Does it still make noise?

    The drone is making the noise when you turn it on and the lights green under the drone. Yes the phone will not pick up the wifi to connect to the rc, have tried another phone

    So are you saying the RC is not broadcasting its Wifi SSID? If not, try to reset it. After it's reset, the default password is 12341234.
