    I got my Vision updated except for the camera and took apart my transmitter to update it. Now I read that some of the Phantoms have a USB port on the outside of the transmitter?!? Wtf. How did I get stuck with the old transmitter?!? I ordered from B&H on 12/26/2013! Ahhh makes me mad. Now I want the other transmitter. Lol

    Your not alone. They had a good stock of the first ones they had to get rid of I'm sure. Not a big deal. I can't see you having to update the radio too much. They may not have even made the usb accessible but I think after people started breaking the antenna wire they felt they needed to expose them. Just a guess. But I may be totally wrong.

    The only transmitter with external USB port is currently the Phantom 2 non vision from what I've read thus far from several people who have recently purchased from varying sources. If there is anyone on here who does recieve a Vision with external usb on transmitter please chime in. I don't think that there are going to be many transmitter updates. Probably most updates will be just to the Phantom itself, where most of the tech is.

    Yeah I'm sure there won't be too many updates to the controller itself. Just sucks when you do have to update it.

    Most people who have received Vision's recently report when they open the Tx it is already updated to the latest firmware from the factory. It depends if your dealer is still shifting stock ordered from the first batch, I guess.

    That is a good video - very clearly showing the "gently pull whilst wiggling" technique!
