    I’m trying to upgrade a phantom 3 Pro firmware and i’m getting the red/green blinking on the gimbal for a while then I get a series of flashing green pause flashing green then again with the red/ green cycle. Has been going on 35 to 45 minutes. This is a broken drone off eBay and I’m a newbie. Is this right or what. Thanks joe

    35 to 45 mins to update...should not take that long, if you get a red light on the gimbal the update has failed.

    As Allan has said to best if my memory red green alternate flashing means firmware updating. 49mins should have done it however. When you say it’s broken- what’s broken?

    hey thanks for your reply the gimbal is broken. I fixed that got the update on the sd put it in the slot starts to green/red flash like it’s supposed to for a firmware update but doesn’t go solid green or red just goes back to flashing green then goes back to red/green
