    When I last had a Phantom, I would occasionally have to upgrade the firmware and would get the update from the DJI website.

    I lost my bird and replaced it, and recently it told me I needed a firmware update, so I went to the site for it, and find it's referring to something called 'Assistant' but doesn't explain what it is. So could someone tell me what Assistant is, and whether or not I need to have it? Thanks.

    You don't need DJI Assistant for P3A/P

    It's a program that loads the firmware. I believe that the Mavic has it now?

    Benny The Ball, if needed, you can find detailed firmware installation instructions here.
