Hi pilots!

I have a Mantis G and i would like to put a beta firmware to it for testing the range. I have 2 update files.
I put one (update.zip) on a microSD card inserted to the drone turned on and the fw flashing completed well.

Then i tried to flash the controller with an USB stick inserted. The update .lzo file is at the root FAT32 formatted filesystem, then i turned on the TX but the flashing did not completed.
Do you have any information how to do the TX flashing? Which buttons have to push to initiate it?

This is actually the first I have heard of someone updating the Mantis G (or Q) via manual update using an SD card. I suspected it could be done. How did you happen to acquire the update as they only came through OTA in the past?

For updating the controller you might try placing the update file in the folder on your phone that would normally store the OTA, then connect the phone and controller and attempt the update.
