    I have updated my firmware in my aircraft and tried to update my remote and it won't update. I have 1.2.6 in my remote and 1.5.3 in my aircraft and running 2.4.2 on my app. I have tried the card in the remote and going through my aircraft please help

    You will have to update the remote to 1.3.2 using a usb reader and after that update, the Go App will update the remote to the present FW version.

    Please post the TXT file from your memory card.

    be sure the bin file is in the root director of the SD card. If that doesn't work, reformat the card and copy the bin file on the SD card root directory again. The file could be corrupted.

    Try a different memory card reader or try the note in step #31 here.
