Help!

Turnigy/Flysky i6s firmware


Just got a Turnigy i6s radio.On first start up saw "Turnigy logo on start and shutdown screen, also Turnigy under firmware in a bit firmware. Updated firmware from Hobbyking site to .49. Now there is no evidence of Turnigy, Flysky on start and shutdown screen,Now in about firmware it shows Flysky FS i6s 2.00 08 Jul 2016 Hardware V_2.2. Has this somehow converted to a Flysky radio, is it safe to use Flysky firmware updates, as this is on .49 and the latest is .58. Will this brick the radio. See attached photos.
Thanks in advance for your help.

Welcome to the church of Flysky my brother. Seriously though I will look into that, looks like someone forgot to change the about and flash screen but the firmware should functionally be the same.

Can send me the link you downloaded it from?

I got the firmware download from the Hobbyking Web site under Turnigy i6s ,files, firmware download. I want to know if it is safe to install Flysky i6s firmware on this radio . I know to stall away from version .54, I just want the ability to name models, not just 1-5. When I first got the radio it did have the Turnigy logo screen .
Thanks,
Wayne

If you can install it, it's safe. This is odd because each version should be locked to their own brand, however if I were to override that lock and install the other version it will work fine.

Firmware update


Hobbyking has just posted a firmware update for the Turnigy i6s to the file area, it is #0.0.5.11, does anyone know what this # relates to in the Flysky numbering system, obviously I want to stay away from. 54!
Thanks,
Wayne

They had the wrong version on our page, their versions and ours may not line up.

What is the number for the latest SAFE Firmware Update for a new FLYSKY FS-i6S?

I currently have three Flysky firmware versions all dated this year:
21/10/2017 Ver 2.0.0.49
20/10/2017 Ver 2.0.0.54
21/9/2017 Ver 2.0.0.58

I'll be receiving a new i6S Monday and trying to determine best Firmware Version to Update to please. I'm confused as even the various forums are quiet on this.

I have used version 58 to upgrade a Turnigy i6S and all ok. Recognises new TGY reciever but not old one as the reciever needs new firmware (not a problem for you).
People mentioned the not being able to exit/save calibrated settings after upgrade but apparently all you do is just do the stick calibration movements then turn the TX off and on again and all saved. Just a minor bug, all working for me I will buy flysky RX etc in future..
