    well i say one thing for p3s its easier to update!

    Im now the proud owner of a p3p and have managed to update the controller through the dpi go app but of course the quad needs something I've never knowingly need before in my life called a bin file.

    found it downloaded it
    cleared sd card (erased everything including dcim hope it still works for pics?) but when i try to unzip it just rezips in czgm form .
    Like thats's all I need
    googled

    now trying to use "terminal" to unzip but that screen won't open as it shows on a youtube clip it has my name and some date that won't delete.

    so that doesnt work

    bit lost really and losing the will to live 3 hrs in its a nice day and I'm spending hrs having a lesson in computer software that i didn't want

    Help please

    Unzipping a .zip file which results in a .cpgz file is usually the result of a corrupted .zip file. This can happen if a browser stops a .zip download before it has closed the file. Delete the .zip file and download a fresh version. If that still does not work, try a different browser, or a different computer for the download and unzipping, format your SD card and load only the resulting .bin file on the card.

    Thanks for that

    This is what I did
    I used a different card half full of pictures

    Didn't format it

    Didn't unzip the bin file

    Just dragged it on to it

    Put in p3p

    Listened to the changing tones as it did its update.

    Removed card and placed back in computer and checked it had success file

    Deleted bib and success file

    Went flying took pictures
