    Have read a few posts of people having unexplained drop outs in control and the PV falling out of the sky. Update both the Main Controller AND Central Board firmware.IF YOU HAVE UPDATED THE RECEIVER FIRMWARE, YOU MUST UPDATE THE TRANSMITTER FIRMWARE ALSO. If the transmitter is using older firmware, DJI plainly states that you could have mysterious control loss and the P2V behaving unusually (loss of throttle/power, loss of directional control).

    yup! to upgrade the transmitter you must open it to get to the usb jack!
    step one: turn it off but leave batteries in
    step two: take out the 4 screws on the bottom
    step three: grab controller on top by the lanyard loop and pull the top part up and towards yourself gently till it separates from the antenna thing remember to be gentle when you wiggle it so you don't break any wire connections.. but the wires are big enough to allow for this separation.
    step four: stick your hand in there with a usb cable and **** your wrist around till it turns into a claw to insert the cable
    step five: turn remote on and run that other update program the rc assistant and update
    step 6 re assemble in reverse order

    now you know!

    Why doesn't DJI have a video on youtube/vimeo explaining this?
