    Hi there.
    I installed the last firmware update before two days
    and everything look to work fine.
    Today i connect the sd card in my laptop to download some pics and i noticed in the P3x_FW_RESULT_AB file
    that says "result : abort" and not success....


    Is there a way to reinstall it???
    Or its beter to leave it as is???


    This is exactly the document file....
    What do i do wrong???

    Delete history success.

    Result: Abort.
    The firmware on the SD card is identical to or older than the current firmware on the aircraft.

    Once you upgrade your firmware, you should remove the SD card and read the TXT file. Also, you need to remove the .bin file as well, or else the Phantom will try to do an update each time you start your machine. It seems as though you have successfully installed the update for it is telling you that the new update for the Phantom 3 Professional is already there.
    Hope this helps!

    Thanks for your help.
    I read somewhere that you leave the bin file in order to update the battery every time you put another one.
    So because i have 4 batteries i leave it in.
    I didnt knnow if this firmware was for the batteries also...so i leave it in the sd card.

    After installing new firmware on your Phantom, start it up with each additional battery installed to install the firmware on those (if needed). After you do that, it's okay to remove the BIN from your memory card.

    If the .txt file section you posted above is the last line, you are still on the older firmware. You can easily check by going into the "about" section in the GO app which will tell you the versions of all your equipment.

    I did the same thing, I have two batteries. I noticed on the second battery that it took less than a second which tells me there was no update for the batteries. Take a look at my TXT file after I updated the firmware, and then tried to update the battery, and notice on the second battery attempt, I got the "Abort" result.
