Hey all. I bought my Q500+ near the end of December. Had my first flight on Jan 9th. I've been doing the 10 and 10 thing with my batteries now for 8 flights on each. I have yet to have an issue, (touch wood), with any of my flights. I know there is firmware to update and I am just wondering if it will make that much difference with my bird. Is there anyone else in the same boat or is there anyone that has experienced issues after downloading the firmware. Thanks for reading, Chewman

Ditto TPAM with firmware.1 doubt you to worry about bad flash disease with yuneec. These guys aren't DJI.

Upgrade your USB driver on your windows computer to work with your USB programmer....I had the same problem. It worked good the iMac Pro...but not on windows...good luck!!

thanks slingshot.....it might be something im not doing right also because im still old school and don't mess with computers that much...about time I get with the 21st. century ..lol...that's why I got on this forum which has helped me alot from all the pilots out there...
I would have thought being that it is the newest laptop HP has, everything would go more smoothly...again, I have lots to learn

first of all I think I was running Gui b4 turn Q500+ on....it was a little different than they described in the video....when I finally got to where I could see that motors were good and everything was checking out ok, then I pushed firmware update....but now I have to figure out how to do st10+ and cgo2+ .....for some reason it is showing that the controller is up to date but the bird wasn't..it was fw 1.05...but had a sticker by the on/off switch stating fw 1.06!!!!!!

It took me three times to update the controller because I wasn't inserting the sd card correctly in the RC..third time was a charm. The camera was pretty simple however. Just remember...you transfer the BIN file to the newly formatted sd card for it work properly...don't get discouraged...you will will have success!!

I have no idea if my camera is already updated. Did what the PDF told me but I did't see the LED change colors.... And with the ST10+ I was only able to update one file.

Anyone do the latest Firmware update to the St10+ ? From March 3rd? I'm thinking about it, just didn't want to 'jump the gun' so to speak. Not sure if you could go backwards with firmware updates or not. Does anyone know what exactly it fixes? Besides the "bugs" that Yuneec posted. Thanks
