    Just plugged in an old sd card today to fly and film and didn't realize it had a firmware file on it. Phantom was flipping out and constantly beeping. I figured out what I had done and had to let if finish its constant beeping, maybe 15-30 minutes before I could fly.

    That should not cause an issue if the firmware on the memory card matches the firmware on the Phantom. DJI even recommends keeping the current firmware on your memory card -- to allow batteries to be updated as needed.

    Was the firmware on your memory card newer/older than what was currently installed on your Phantom?

    Yes, the P3 checks the firmware versions first. If it's not newer firmware on the card it won't try to update.

    You guys are correct, I forgot about that. I think I downloaded the developer firmware for SDK a week or so ago and forgot I had it on that card. Now it makes sense. Seems to fly fine with the firmware. How do I find the version number? I deleted the file from the sd card.

    Never mind, I found the log:
