I have been working in IT for 40 years and decided to upgrade my firmware on my system. Spent time looking at many videos on how to upgrade. Just a piece of advice donít do this itís a crap shoot. You have a 50% chance of complete disaster. I followed the instructions and my entire system was wiped out. Itís as if I just got a new system, all my settings are gone. I did what every good IT person does I backed up my system before upgrading. After the disaster upgrade the system would not allow me to restore my models. I have 10 planes that I have to re-program. Itís not worth the risk

DO NOT UPDATE YOUR FIRMWARE

I have version open-x9D v1.1.02 trying to upgrade. I cannot down load any firm ware. It will not turn on properly using the two trim buttons and powering on. I get the message throttle error. All my models are gone somehow the system formatted over everything however I did backup my models.

No DFU capable USB device found

Got this resolved but I tried to write my models back to the radio using companion 2.2 and it told me the USB was not connected . The radio said the USB was connected
