Software Update

INFO: The FlightCtrl V3.0 is supplied with current software and is already tested and functional.

If there is a newer software version then the one on the FlightCtrl V3.0 you can update the FlightCtrl V3.0 quick and easy.

The FlightCtrl V3.0 consists of two parts (flight control system and navigation). Here we need then 2parts of software and the right KopterTool:

  • Program => Kopter_Tool_V2_14a.zip

  • Software flight control system=> Flight-Ctrl_MEGA1284p_V2_14a.hex

  • Software navigation=> Navi-Ctrl_STR9_V2_14a.hex
    (the displayed version numbers are exemplary)

It is importand that all 3 parts have the same versionsnumber! The letter at the end can be arbitrary.


Download

  • The latest software for the FlightCtrl V3.0 can be downloaded here:


http://gallery3.mikrokopter.de/var/albums/intern/MK-Baugruppen/FlightCtrl/FlightCtrl-V3.0/FC_V3_0_ZIP.png?m=1454658079

Step 1: unpack file

The downloaded file is a compressed file with the name Software_MikroKopter.zip.
In this compressed file you'll find the necessary software and the matching KopterTool.

The easiest way is to unpack the software and the KopterTool to the desktop.
To do this make a double klick on the .zip file with the left mouse button. Move then the needed files via "drag & drop" to your desktop.




http://gallery3.mikrokopter.de/var/albums/intern/MK-Baugruppen/FlightCtrl/FlightCtrl-V3.0/FC_V3_0_Update-Teil1.png?m=1454658072

Step 2: open KopterTool

Open the folder KopterTool_Vx.xxx (x.xxx = version number) and start the program MikroKopter-Tool.exe.
If you open the program for the first time, you have to confirm the license conditions. Then you see the KopterTool window.
A "click" on the button Firmware update & Terminal will open the terminal window.

Info:
The copter must be connected with your computer and the fully charged battery is connected with your copter.
The transmitter is ON.

Wait until the update is done (white letters).

After the update is done, click on the button to MK-Tool... to go back to the main window.
There you can check the versions numbers.
(with the button NaviCtrl and FlightCtrl you can change the display)

After an update you have to check the functions before you fly.







Update error

http://gallery3.mikrokopter.de/var/albums/intern/MK-Baugruppen/FlightCtrl/FlightCtrl-V3.0/FC_V3_0_Update-Error.png?m=1454687874

If something went wrong during the update, the software on the FlightCtrl V3.0 can be deleted. In that case you can mean that there is no connection and nothing works.

But do not panic. You can install the software quick and easy again.

This will help to install the software:

  • The copter is:
    • connected via MK-USB with your computer (do NOT use a wireless connection!)

    • the battery is fully charged and connected with your copter
  • The terminal window is open and the right COM port is set
  • If you start the update you can see maybe now a TIMEOUT

Now we do this:

  1. Start the update again
  2. If there is no OK after 3-4 dots (behind "(try to reset Hardware....)" ->

    • open the battery connection and directly
    • close the battery connection
  3. Now you should have an OK behind the dots and the update should go further

Info:
If the update will not run, check the COM port and the connections.

If there is no way to update the FlightCtrl V3.0 again, please contact the MikroKopter support: support@hisystems.de







Settings

To use the copter with your transmitter you have to set the channels in your transmitter and in the settings for the FlightCtrl V3.0.
You can now set this channels manually and individually.
Or you use the ready setup file MK-Setting_(Vx.xx).mkp that you also find in the .zip file.
(see: Software Update - ''Software_!MikroKopter.zip'')
