How to Update your DJI Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 Firmware


Here at Uplift, we know we drone on (punny) about how we want to help – but we really do mean it, we’re all about giving a helping hand when we can.

We know that Firmware updates can be frustrating– so we’ve broken them down for you into this simple 10-step guide.

Before you begin the update, make sure that the aircraft’s and remote controller’s battery level is more than 50%.

There are two different ways to update your DJI Phantom 4 Pro V2.0’s firmware: Via the DJI GO 4 app or via PC.

Via the DJI GO 4 app
