Thanks, Alan!

I was experiencing the same difficulty - then you mentioned the 'other update port'...

Now I have a Minima 6 bound to my Optima 6 2.4 transmitter.

The RF "module", whilst fixed into the Eclipse 7 Pro, Optic 5 and Optic 6 Sport, has separate firmware,
which relates to all Hitec 2.4Ghz Spectra Modules, so must be updated as a separate unit as documented in the
Optic 6 Sport Manual - copy page 12 is attached.
(Until only a couple of years ago, upgrades were only possoble by buying a completely new transmitter)

Procedure is frequently published on all major forums, especially via:
. Hitec Optic 6 & Optic Sport - Manuals, Tutorial, FAQ & Comparison Charts
. Hitec HPP-22 2.4GHz Programmer - Manual, FAQ - How to Install & Use (with screenshots & Video).
