    So, on a flight this afternoon as I was prepping and doing preflight checks when the good ole ipad said I required a firmware update. Still let me fly and when I got home and tried the update.....maybe this is a mistake. That being said below is the txt file results. Can anyone tell me what this means its contradictory it says success and that it was aborted what gives. Reading some of the threads I won't be trying to do it again but the update was successful on the controller.

    Now what? Do I dare fly with different firmware on the controller vs. the phantom 3 advanced?

    Please be considerate, I'm not stupid nor did I attempt the update incorrectly as I have done it before.

    Thanks in advance for those who help.

    Result: Success.

    ========== 2014.01.01 00:00:11 remo-con disconnect======
    Packet: P3S_FW_V01.02.0008.bin
    Result: Abort.
    The firmware on the SD card is identical to or older than the current firmware on the aircraft.

    That's saying that the firmware you tried to update with is already on the device - no update needed.

    I believe you, but I assure it wasn't the firmware installed. I had the version from back in May. Just tested it out and did drift a little more than usual. Seems to fly okay other than that.

    Thanks all the same for your help.
