The new software for Phantom 3, was announced by Dji, the new software has new functions like Point of Interest, Follow Me nad Waypoints. Functions that we have been waiting for a long time.

   

 

Download the firmware here:

We must have the DJI GO App version 2.2.0 for the IOS and 2.1.0 for the Android and if our radio has version 1.3.20 does not need an update, it will work just fine.

 

Before you start take off the props.

 

First we upload the suitable file for the Phantom we unzip and place the file with extension .bin in the memory card. It will be a good idea to have the card formatted first.

 

With our radio turned off and of course with a fully charged battery in the Phantom we place the memory card in place and turn on the Phantom. The update will start automatically and we will see the light turning red and green.

After about 20-25 min. the light will stay green this is an indication that the proses is over. If we have more batteries we put them in and we turn the Phantom on with the radio off, this proses will also update our batteries, this will take about 2 min.

Then we take the memory card out of the Phantom and we put it in our PC, we will find a .txt file that will tell us that the upgrade has been installed successfully.

Upgrading ...
Result: Success.

 

It will be a good idea at this time to do an IMU, compass and gimbal calibration.

For the new updates to work, follow me, waypoints, POI you have to fly your Phantom, while in the air change to mode F and you will see the new functions on the screen.

 

Safe flying !!!
