Anyone have this problem loading the firmware. Is there a new upgrade tool? If there is where do I download it from?

I will have a look before next flight. Latest check showed 3S.

Hi Rob,

I had a flight today (no sun, 4C outside with 11 kts wind) and here is the log.

I also checked the number of cells in the setting: I confirm 3 cells.

According to my today's log, I will have to check the symmetry (verticality) of my motors: autopilot is always applying right rudder.

Enjoy austral summer,

Marc

I have been away for a few months so trying to catch up on the updates etc.

I assume now with the new Wifi setup the wireless data modules are no longer needed? Just connect the Wifi direct to the FC? If that the case what range does the WiFi have? I would have assumed the data modules have a further range?

I have installed the android phone aps update but now it constantly reads out the altitude. Any way to turn this off?



Also the new update tool I downloaded from this thread has no text on the buttons and only ????? for the text. As well the upgrade tool is not available on the Zerouav web site. ( Poor service for an expensive product!!)

Can you advise why my PC GCS reads "Locked Radius 20m" when I have the professional 50WP version upgrade? Also only shows 1/5WPs

And lastly the user manual is getting even worse with all the messy updates to it. There is no intuitive flow from start to finish and its all over the place. Isn't it due time to do a full rewrite of this manual and clean up and also fix the bad English?

While checking the number of cells, I also discovered that my Hexa was configured as a QuadX (type1) instead of HexaX (type3).

May be an error while reading the chart (mental viscosity) or a return to defaults settings while upgrading firmware or pressing a button on the CGS.

Is there a way to check this setting in the flight log?

Strange but sure: it was flying like that, maybe due to the design of my craft.

Marc
