First, if you update the RC you must also update the aircraft firmware. Second, did you try calibrating the RC? And please describe in more detail as to what you are referring to by "shuting off the wi-fi" in your description of the issue. Wi fi has nothing to do with the upgrade, other than downloading the update files. After that, it is a stand alone process.

Recalibrating the remote, solves so many problems. Had one yesterday that the left stick would only go up. Let go and the drone would fall like a rock. No crash but scary. Recalibrating the RC was all it needed. It’s one of my first steps now when a problem arises. Good luck

There are YouTube videos to show you, if you don’t know how.
