    I'm in Aruba and made the mistake of buying a new battery and not doing the upgrade. Is there anything to be concerned about?

    Clearly you have internet access. Why not just download the FW again and upgrade the battery?

    I didn't realize I could do it wirelessly....... In the past I pulled the memory card out, plugged it in my laptop and then put in back in the quad.

    ? You can't do it remotely, I just assumed since you were asking the question that you had all your gear with you.

    In any case, it's probably not a big deal anyway. If you can arm the motors and the app doesn't complain, I'd fly it.

    Great, I appreciate the response!
    Everything seems fine but I didn't want to chance it without some expert advice.
