Does anyone have a drawing on just how to connect the Electric Air Module?
I'm going to use 1 or 2 lipo's at the same time.

Can use the separate black cables for each battery? Or do the two black cables always need to be soldered together?

Drawing to illustrate what I mean:

Sorry to here. Did you restart your pc before you update?
It is advise to always restart pc and have no other programs running before an update

I update mx20 on mac via vmware fusion. With out a prob.
Yep it seems you will have to send it back to graupner. Or try speaking to graupner tech as there maybe a way to get the radio in some sort of service mode where by it could be reflash

Oh yes it can!

In a German forum a user reported that being 5 minutes in flight his HoTT TX lost all it's connection to the RX and the model crashed after going to fail safe.
Even on the ground the TX did not reestablish any connection with several Graupner RX's. But all RX's worked with another HoTT TX.

Conclusion : The TX all of a sudden had a failure during the flight and the pilot lost control.
Can you imagine if this will occur more frequently how people on the field can be hurt?
Even the Graupner service up to now doesn't have any explanation what happened.

Voice messages in English

Hi!
I got the MX-16(2011). and I'm trying to change the voice messages to english. But I can't locate the file "voice_gb.vdf" that I'm suppose to copy to the SD-card.
Could anyone please tell me where to download the file. I can't find it on Graupners web page.

Thanks
Michael

Hi, it's in the HoTT Software.zip which is at the mx-16 page under the Download tab.
