    Hey everyone, new Phantom 2 owner here and I've come across something strange or simply a bug in the PT2 software.

    I've had to upgrade a few things but under upgrade it shows the following:

    Note the firmware is the same as what is listed under upgrade and when I click on that URL it allows me to upgrade. Then note the Battery which states there is no upgrade (which is what I would expect the others to say)

    Just trying to wrap my head around the different layers of firmware and such. I've also tried to search for this topic but was unable to find anything remotely close to my issue. I've upgraded the Main controller and Gimbal and re calibrated the transmitter.

    Running this from a Mac via PT2 version 1.08 ( I think as it's confusing that the main controller is at the same version)

    What is listed in the Upgrade column is what you currently have installed...I agree a bit confusing...

    Thanks Bernard, still tweaking and calibrating.
