Updates

I just re-released 2.053 in response to problems with the Setup Client. There was a minor glitch with the Setup client interface that was causing the boards not to connect. You will need to re-flash your board in order to use the Setup Client.

2.069

I just released 2.069 into the update client.

Fixes:
Fixed board initialization issues.
Fixed problem with flight recorder.
Tweaked autoleveling filter (let me know if you guys like this better or not)
Decreased sensitivity of takeoff detection
Fixed issue with using 11ms frame rate on Spektrum DX8
Added Receiver performance counters for diagnostics
Fixed issue with boards needing to be reflashed every so often

Note: You must update to the new version of the setup client to take advantage of the RX performance counters. You will be automatically prompted to update when you load the setup client.

Hoverfly Update Client

Guys,
We just released a new version of the firmware update client to support some long over due infrastructure changes. Don't get too excited, the new version of the firmware isn't quite available yet. It will be soon. Let us know if you experience any issues.

Firmware Update and Setup Utility

New versions of both have been released.

The Firmware Update Utility only has cosmetic changes.

The Setup Utility has cosmetic as well as functional changes. We have put in place a workaround which allows the board to connect to the Setup Utility the first time you click the connect button.

A firmware update will follow soon after.

You'll need to go to http://www.hoverflytech.com/Software_Updates.html to get the updates.
