    Hi all, a Newb here. I am inquiring if I can or should remove/un-install the firmware update from the MicroSD after the update has been performed?? Or, is it required to stay on the card to work properly??

    You can remove it from your memory card after you have updated all of your spare batteries.

    You can use that port to retrieve the DAT flights logs that are stored on the Phantom's internal memory card. If interested, you can find detailed instructions here.

    OK Thank you for the reply and link. I will read that as soon as I have time. Is there a published owners manual that explains and instructs on the use of the drone?? The included manual leaves a lot to be desired.

    Thank you for the link. I think you may have answered my last question about a more detailed manual being anywhere.
