I wanted to separate the threads because some people are having problems updating the bird. Mine, and a few others, have successfully updated the bird, however the RC does not update. I know it needs an update because the app is telling me it needs to be updated. In the following, the status light is the one of the controller. If it is upgrading, it should turn blue: 1. Through the app - cannot upgrade. This makes sense as I had not updated it for a long time (was still on 1.1.8). 2. Inserting a USB stick with the firmware in root - nothing happens: Status light stays red. 3. Repeat step 2 with the bird on - nothing happens: Status light stays green 4. With a usb cable connected between the gimbal and the controller. Phantom on first, than controller - nothing happens: status light stays green.
