First I sincerely apologize if the answers to my questions have been answered. I simply can't find them. Every time an update of any kind comes along I download and install it. It seems I am totally dead in the water now. I updated my P3advanced to Version 1.8.80. I turned my P3advanced on and followed that by turning on the controller. I got a message that I must download and install a new software update: V1.6.0. My app version on my Ipad is 2.8.1. The update failed a couple of times. I turned the P3 off and back on. It showed update successful. However, after restarting I got the same message that an update is required for the controller. When I checked the ABOUT Software it now shows for the controller: Current Version: Unknown. App version 2.8.1. Aircraft: Version 1.8.80. Please advise what I am doing wrong. Had DJI taken a great product and totally screwed it up with lame updates? Or am I doing something very lame, which is most likely the case. I apologize for this post being so long but I wanted to post a complete vision of what is going on. PLEASE HELP!
