Help!
updating firmware for 2.4g TX module and RXs

Question for factory support.
Hi, I have a Hitec 2.4G module for my optic-6 with 2 Optima 6 RXs.
The version for the RX says J10.02.

Can I update my TX module firmware without updating my RXs (sending them in)? Or am I better to use the old firmware for both until I can have time to send them in for updating?
Thanks,

There are no updates available for the Optic 6 transmitter, only the Optic 6 Sport.
However, there are updates available for the Spectra 2.4GHz module which has a data port on the reverse.
To update the module so your Optic 6 can be used with Minima receivers, refer:

. Hitec HPP-22 2.4GHz Programmer - Manual, FAQ - How to Install & Use
..(includes Screenshots & Current Firmware Versions for all related Units).

. Hitec Optic 6 & Optic 6 Sport - Manuals, Tutorial, Comparison Charts, Updates & FAQ

. Optima 6, 7 & 9 Ch Transceiver Update V2.02 07Oct11
(•Improved reboot and recovery methods after severe RF interference.) - Requires Module V3.01 and Aurora V1.07(2) +

ex Hitec USA Support Forum Sticky:
AFHSS 2.4Ghz Module, Transceivers_Receivers & Telemetry,
- FAQ, Setups & Tips {Individual Links often updated}
[Optima 6 do not require an upgrade to 2.02 when used in EP Models.
However, if used in petrol powered models, strongly suggest they be updated by sending into your service centre, as per link.
[or for those hardy well skilled modellers - DIY as per . Hitec - Optima 6 - DIY Flash updates via HPP-22 on my webpage.]

Later: to answer specific questions raised:
1. Can I update my TX module firmware without updating my RXs
Yes, as per information within link provided.
2. Or am I better to use the old firmware for both until I can have time to send them in for updating?
Always best to update each unit as a firmware update is released.
(It is what all new releases of respective unit will have installed)
See current updates and information provided under both above links
