    DataPilot Update Fails???

    Thanks Steve. At this point I'm just leaving my 1.6.57.0 installed. It's all working fine. At this point...if it ain't broke don't fix it.

    DataPilot Update Fails???

    I've been trying to do my SW updates. I'm informed I need to update DataPilot from 1.6.57.0 to 1.6.2.0 (? why an earlier number...but that's another question). I can connect to WiFi, and am able to check App versions (which is how I got the info above). Then I get the "button" to download...

    H520 ST16 Controller Update seems to have KILLED my ST16. HELP!

    UPDATE: After the MUCH appreciated help on this site (you folks are the best) I am now in business again. I'll certainly document all of this for the "future" in case such happens again. Thanks again to everyone who responded.

    Thanks! I shall make note of that in my ever building documentation for this bird. It seems ALL is good again.

    H520 ST16 Controller Update seems to have KILLED my ST16. HELP!

    YUREKA!. I think you were basically saying the same as Steve/Flo...I just wasn't tapping the center button soon enough...started immediately AFTER turning on the power switch. Eventually it DID reboot. Testing everything now

    H520 ST16 Controller Update seems to have KILLED my ST16. HELP!

    Thanks for the suggestion Flo. Question...what are you calling the center "soft button". I've tried all three buttons (the "center" button that looks like a mini menu, the home button (looks like a house), and the "return" button that looks like a letter U on its side with the arrow on top...

    H520 ST16 Controller Update seems to have KILLED my ST16. HELP!

    Hello again Murray. Was able to grab my cord and try hooking to the Computer (Mac). Still no joy. It acts like its trying to begin charging the battery (white battery icon flashes in the middle of the display)...but nothing every mounts to the computer desktop

    H520 ST16 Controller Update seems to have KILLED my ST16. HELP!

    Re-asking an earlier question (after talking with an Android guy here at my day job). IS there anywhere (i.e., a link) that I can go and download a Firmware/Flash fix to a microUSB card, boot the ST16 from that...and repair the issue. My Android guy said it sounded like a case of the upgrade...

    H520 ST16 Controller Update seems to have KILLED my ST16. HELP!

    Continued thanks Steve. Unfortunately can't get a menu...started pressing the center button as soon as I saw the Yuneec splash screen...no menu...unit still goes "dark" after about 15 to 30 seconds (blue power light still on...unit dead)

    H520 ST16 Controller Update seems to have KILLED my ST16. HELP!

    Thanks for the response Murray. 1) no micro SD card in the unit. 2). same result - power light comes on...fan starts...splash screen displays...screen goes dark, fans stops, but blue power light still on. 3). I'm at my "day" job and don't have my USB cable for the ST16 with me. Will grab...

    H520 ST16 Controller Update seems to have KILLED my ST16. HELP!

    Thanks for the quick response and suggestion. Alas didn’t help. At power up the blue light comes on, the fan starts, and after about 20 to 30 seconds the “Yuneec Electric Aviation” splash screen appears. It stays there about 10 seconds then the fan shuts off and the screen goes...

    H520 ST16 Controller Update seems to have KILLED my ST16. HELP!

    Well...I started this evening having issues with Wifi when trying to do Software Update. Got that fixed. Got through ALL of the updates except the final one for the Controller...did that one...and now...the ST16 seems dead...blue power light is on...screen is black. (Sorry I don't recall the...

    H520 Complete Power Failure(?)

    I'm guessing you can add me to that particular "school of hard knocks". I have added a step to my "pre-flight" checklist to remind me to do EXACTLY that if I question whether the battery is seated properly. Now...the bad news...seems one of my updates has killed my ST16 (sigh). Power light...

    H520 Complete Power Failure(?)

    Thanks Steve...I "think" I may have resolved the wifi problem...needed to go to a "different" System Settings to tell Software Updater "how" to connect to my home wifi. Just telling the Android System Settings isn't sufficient. We got 4 to 5 inches of snow yesterday...and hoping to get some...

    H520 Complete Power Failure(?)

    UPDATE: Good News. It took several weeks...but I got Yuneec USA to agree to repair my H520 as a warranty repair. The nearby shop in KC (KAV Services) apparently isn't doing Yuneec work anymore...so ended up sending everything back to Vertigo Drones (who I am very pleased with). It did take...
