My ST16 controller has a memory malfunction and has lost operational software.
The tablet will not boot up to the point to soft reset.
I purchased a replacement ST16S controller that was indicated to work with the Typhoon H Plus, and it indeed does bind to the bird, but fails to find the camera.

I cannot find any way to add camera description.

What can you say I need to do?

but fails to find the camera.
Go to the Android wifi menu and connect to the camera. When you go back to Flightmode, it should find it. If it doesn't, please tell us.

Did you try the steps to recover a bricked ST16+ ??

I think the problem is that the firmware is not correct for the Typhoon H Plus.
But I cannot find anything to confirm that.

The control screens are not laid out the same and it seems inconsistent with my previous experience with the groundstation.

Can you tell me where to get the APK and firmware loads?

I guess we need to ensure what camera and what controller are you using;

Typhoon H Plus (ST16S for H Plus)
Main Screens:

Bind Screen:

The Camera is marked "C23" on the sides of the camera arm:

The nose marking includes the word "PLUS":

Typhoon H520 (ST16S for H520)
Main Screen:
1H520.JPG



Typhoon H, Typhoon H Pro (ST16/ST16+)
Main Screen:

Bind Screen:

The camera is marked "CG03+" on the camera hubs:

The nose marking is without the word "PLUS":

If you will upload a screenshot of your Firmware update screen (or list the versions), we could better comment on the APK/ firmware issue.

Hi all.

Ok what I found is exactly what I had originally guessed.

The Typhoon H Plus takes a special ST16S ground station that has some hardware as well as software differences in the groundstation on the ST16 groundstations normally advertised for sale. Most of the sellers do not seem to know about any differences.

I researched and found a ST16S Plus groundstation and that cured the control and camera issue.

Thanks.

The ST16S is used for the Typhoon H Plus and the H520 (and likely the H3) with the only difference being the software run on the controller. That can be done by the end user.

It sounds as if you bought the controller (ST16) used for the H480 and H920+ originally. That is why the questions were posed to you that you never answered.

I think I said that. The ST16S (first one) I purchased was NOT for the H Plus. It was advertised as being for the H Plus. The obvious thing was the UI was completely different and then would not bind the C23 Camera.

So Shame on the Seller!!!!!

I Spoke with Yuneek in UK and they verified that the ST16S was hardware and Software different.

Then I spent more time with the sellers until I was sure they had the right groundstation.

So far the support in the US has been a little slow, to non existent for the problems.

Thanks.
