So I just received my new H520E with thermal camera. I had a Yuneec Typhoon H but a compass malfunction out it into the center of a Poplar tree at about 30 knots a year 1/2 ago. Been flying DJI and Autel EVO 2 in between then - I fly professionally for real estate as well as construction, inspections etc. Anyway- can not find anywhere in the manual about firmware updates. Old way was load it onto the SD Card and crank it up. But on several videos they show using the update pilot app. However the app says specifically not to use it on the H520E only the H520. Now the check for updates on the controller pulls up the current version to the left and then in green what I can only assume is a newer version- but no way to start downloading it? Help?

Got hold of a second-hand H520E today, and ran straight into this problem with updating it. The H520E has an updating option in the Settings screen, but when you get it to search for updates it doesn't tell you how to download them. After a search through the H520E manual, it turns out they missed out any mention of updating the drone!! (On the plus side for this manual it does have a contents page, which the H520 manual lacks; but that manual does have a section on updating - which is more important. Why don't they just get someone to proof-read these things? I'd do it for free!)

The solution is to update to Datapilot v2 (in Google Play store, Apple store as usual).

Once you've done this, then the Settings page has a option called "Version" which has a comprehensive list of all the different bits of software that might need updating. You select each one in turn to download and install.

The ST16E then finally makes use of that USB-A socket in the top on the Remote Controller to connect to the micro-USB in the OFDM unit on the back of the drone to send the updates to the aircraft.
