Ok before I try this I think I will ask
I purchased a controller st16s and it has typhoon H software
system CONTROLLER_1.1_03_20190312
APP: APP_1.1.03_20190320

I have a 520E and want to use the second remote to control the camera. Possible?
do I have to change the st16s firmware to 520 or is this just not gonna work because the 520e controller is just different.
I figure the camera will be controlled by the master so the video link will be 2.4ghz so the issue would be the way the 2 controllers interface
would the inputs go through the master controller?
anyone have any thoughts before I try to update this plus controller to 520 firmware

The ST16S is for the H Plus, H520, and H3 that all use a 2.4 GHz Zigbee transceiver for aircraft control and 5.8 GHz WiFi for video (and redundant aircraft control).

The H520e and ST16e use OFDM for the video link. It is very likely that the ST16S will not be compatible with the H520e.

There needs to be much clearer specifications on Yuneec’s website. The hodge-podge of mixing the H520 and H520e in the same pages is confusing for those familiar with the systems and utter chaos for those new to Yuneec.

I bought a H520e and it came with ST16S controller. The ST16S came with the DataPilot V2 installed.
I shows OFDM connections with the drone.
ST16S - shows on the DataPilot Planner (win desktop) and in one of the thread a comment suggest, the battery number also reference the S verson - but not sure about this
