Help!
Does Optic 6 Sport need to be updated

I have an early version Optic 6 Sport. Since I only use Optima 6 Rx's, is
there a good reason to update the Tx.? My 5 Optima 6's have various revision levels, the latest 2.01.

To obtain full benefit from your system, recommend update to latest version,
especially the fixed RF module which is updated by a separate Data Port.
Updating the RF Module enables use of the Minima receivers and Telemetry features, refer:

Thanks A.T.
However, since I will only be using Optima 6, no minima or telemetry, and can't update the Optima 6's, is the risk of update worth it. Thanks.

jlremr, Your Optima 6's can be updated. Just sent three of mine to get the new firmware installed, Hitec has to do them. You can't update them using the HPP-22. The firmware update is free. The firmware and software updates make your Optic Sport work better.
Also the minina receivers cost less. George
