    I always follow sequence Radio on then Phantom on...but when using phantom assistant on pc with phantom 2 (non-vision in my case) connected to computer to, say , adjust flight limits, or update firmware, is it necessary to have the radio on so as to not break the link or anything?
    Thanks

    Remote doesn't need to be on if connected for updates, but I would have it on since 1) It'll say it's in failsafe mode but it's not going to go anywhere and 2) you can check if the remote parameters are the way it should be.

    And in order to check parameters the RC has to be on. Without the RC being on you will not know if the failsafe is on or if any of the switches even work.
    Just trolling around.
