    Ok. I'd rather come here and share exciting stories or some great video, but it seems for me that when it rains, it pours... I updated the copter to the lastest version, no proble. I attempted to update the transmitter to the latest firmware, half way through the update my TX lost power. I cycled the power, no luck. I checked the batteries, all good. I opened it up, joints look good, main board is getting power (used a multimeter). No mods to this TX and it's only a couple months old.

    I'm at a loss... Coincidence during the firmware update or what? Sigh...

    Is your Tx modded? Did you have an antenna connected to it when you applied power? I read somewhere that if you power your Tx without an antenna connected, it could burn up the board... just an idea...

    Remove the back of the controller. There is a small reset button on the circuit board. Hold the button while powering on the transmitter.

    Fixed. Appears it failed half way through the upgrade and went into loader mode. I was able to reapply the update and now it works fine. Thanks.
