    I just got my Phantom 2 v2 today.

    I went to DJI.com and got a bit confused. I saw software assistant downloads, but there are 2different ones, plus another 2 for something else.
    What are all of these for? How do I know which one is for my Phantom?

    http://www.dji.com/product/phantom-2/download (I have Windows 7, so I am just looking at the 4 downloads under "Assistant downloads and driver")


    I want to calibrate the controller first, then load the firmware into the Phantom 2. Once it do a few test flights, then install the gimbal.

    Thanks !

    Download v3.6 P2 assistant software, v1.2 RC assistant and windows driver. Use that software while you learn how to fly the P2 and later if you want to upgrade to the v3.8 that's up to you.

    OK I downloaded the first two, but with DJI Win Driver Installer...

    it said to "Please power on MC and connect it to PC via USB". What is MC ?

    lol...

    you need to download the P2 manual and read..

    the software is politely reminding you that you need to plug the usb into your computer and the phantom and turn the phantom on in order for the software to communicate. MC is master controller aka phantom.
