    Hi All
    I'm trying to update aircraft to firmware 1.08.0080 I have seen loads of people with problems but nothing like this
    I have updated in past with no problems
    I put din file into root of sd card insert into aircraft and turn on
    The problem is it won't detect the sd card so won't start the upgrade
    I have tried five different cards including two new and still no cigar
    Any ideas ????

    You do have the remote controller off, don't you?

    Double check my firmware installation instructions here to ensure you did not miss a step.

    Pretty happy I followed all those steps
    Another point my gimbal light never comes on or flashes and don't get a txt file
    It's like it can't tell there is a sd card in it

    Just a quick thought seeing as you seem to have done everything correctly - is the SD card slot working? If you take a photo will it write to the SD card?

    Bollocks. I had an issue yesterday where I updated the RC first without updating the aircraft side. It wouldn't connect so I had to upgrade to 1.8 - but it went ahead as normal.

    Why won't the app connect? It should even though the RC won't connect. You should still be able to take a photo?

    If you've tried everything, maybe give this a go to help initiate the FW install process.
