    Hello

    I wonder if anyone can help ?

    When I plug my phantom 2 into the computer & switch it on it don't seem to update. The computer makes the noise that something is connected but nothing else happens ? When I even move the RC sticks nothing happens on the DJI assistant ;( what could I be doing wrong ? As my phantom is still on its original software & I was gonna update to the present one. Or is this a good idea ?? Tho the gimbal will not point straight down I also think it needs updated ??

    hello, make sure you have the proper software for Phantom 2, as there are two different types of naza assistant software for the P1 and P2. i definitely recommend you update whenever possible. you may also need to update the gimbal, but it sounds like it just needs an X1 calibration. hope this helps! :)

    Updating your Phantom 2 software (firmware) is a multi-step process that needs to be carefully followed step by step.

    Here are a few Googled links to help you get started.
