    I updated my drone to 1.9.6, and got the latest app on the smartphone. But my RC says it is running 1.6 firmware. The craft app says it is "updated with latest software and ready to fly." But shouldn't the RC run 1.9.6 too? Help. I have the Phantom 3 Advanced.

    thanks for the quick reply flpholt. What does that mean? So 1.6 firmware is correct for remote control?

    I'm glad I found this thread I bought Advanced model 3 days ago and updated drone firmware but Rc stayed at 1.6. Was a bit weary of taking off but mind has now been put at rest.
    Many Thanks Alan

    When you upgrade the drones firmware with the SD card, does the controller update as well?
