The following list of features were added or improved in the latest RC firmware but not having them does -not- inhibit control & operation of your upgraded Vision:
a) Algorithm is improved so that even under CE compliant mode, the communication range of Remote Controller can achieve around 400 meters in open areas.
b) Using RC Assistant Software, users can calibrate the sticks and switch between Mode 1 and Mode 2.
c) Other minor bugs fixed.
If you have Parallels or VMware Fusion running on your Mac, you can download & install RC Assistant for PC and upgrade your TX/Controller that way.

How to upgrade your camera firmware:
WARNING: As up this edit (12/08) there have been a few posts of users no longer being able to access their cameras after attempting the update. Some have had success by rebinding the repeater & camera (see manual). DJI advises a "factory reset" may be required, but was unspecific whether this could be done by the end-user or the unit must be returned to the dealer or factory. If you're camera is currently working, you might want to wait until this is sorted out first. FYI the upgrade enables 25Frame 50Hz television standard support. If you want to proceed follow the steps below.

The status LED on the camera is constant red (or orange) regardless of switch position. There is no connectivity to the camera at all. According to the manual, a red LED means a "critical error" and requires a "factory reset."
This happened about 15 days ago and I have searched and searched the forums with no luck. I have also emailed DJI tech support 3 times now without single reply from them. I purchased the P2V direct from DJI, so there is no dealer I can turn to. I am now going on 3 weeks with a broken Phantom and no help or hope of getting it fixed. This has turned a $1,200 purchase into a very frustrating experience. I would not recommend this product to others based on how easily it can be bricked and the lack of responsiveness from the maker.
I would appreciate any help I can get. If anyone knows (a) how to reach DJI tech support, or (b) what a factory camera reset is, or (c) how a user might do a factory reset on the camera, or (d) any other resource I might turn to to get my P2V flying again I would greatly appreciate it.
Thanks in advance for your help.
