    This is a great video. It answered my questions I had and I am now properly updated. Thanks very much for posting this.

  2. greatwhite35 on November 18, 2020 at 8:51 pm

    Great video! My flight video files from the drone get corrupted for some reason and are unreadable. I usually get one file out of five that’s not damaged. Not sure what is causing this, if it’s the SD card brand (Centon XC1 class-10 64gb) or if a firmware update will fix. Will find out soon!

  3. Drew Monette on November 18, 2020 at 8:52 pm

    The file doesn’t show up in my list.. I’ve tried it with 2 different MSD cards. Any suggestions?

  4. Justin Backus on November 18, 2020 at 8:55 pm

    I need help! I have a Q500+ and im getting the unable to connect camera error. When it does connect it will work for a few minutes and then lose connection. I’ve already updated the firmware on the st10+ and the CGO2+. I’ve also tried reformatting the SD cards and creating a new "name" and rebinding everything.. Nothing seems to work. Please give me some advice or let me lnow if there’s anything else I can do!

  5. warriorsteve65 on November 18, 2020 at 8:57 pm

    Very helpful! Thank you sir!

  6. Franchesca Croft on November 18, 2020 at 8:57 pm

    Do i need to format the memory card after every flight??

  7. bassam zadain on November 18, 2020 at 8:58 pm

    thank u .. you r wonderful

  8. Dimitri Biemond on November 18, 2020 at 9:00 pm

    Thank you for this, very informative

  9. Lamount Hicklin on November 18, 2020 at 9:01 pm

    I used google chrome, update the tx file and did the system update. But when the transmitter restarted, I checked and found that the build number and hardware version had not changed.

  10. Street Drummer on November 18, 2020 at 9:02 pm

    Wow, thanks for the great video. Step by step and professional. Keep up the great work!

  11. Todd Larson on November 18, 2020 at 9:04 pm

    So I did the firmware update and now my q500 won’t fly. I start it up, the props spin but nothing happens when I hit the throttle. Any suggestions?

  12. derjoh1986 on November 18, 2020 at 9:05 pm

    Thanks for sharing!!!

  13. Shane Durrance Productions on November 18, 2020 at 9:08 pm

  14. Blinkit Photography on November 18, 2020 at 9:09 pm

  15. steve Meadows on November 18, 2020 at 9:10 pm

    i just purchased a yuneec bundle 2 battery’s the grip,all kinds of stuff come with. I think for 900 u get your money’s worth. I have learned stuff from your videos thank you. I ‘ve flown Hubsan and Toruk ap pro10 just want to try this one .My biggest and best purchase will be a Dji Phantom 4 Pro with sensors all around it.But thank you for the vids

  16. Lamount Hicklin on November 18, 2020 at 9:11 pm

    version 1.4

  17. Nγx๏γ on November 18, 2020 at 9:11 pm

    Hey Jeff, why do we need to update this and what does it do?

  18. Clay Burch on November 18, 2020 at 9:12 pm

    I tried to update my Transmitter and it did not update at all. I did everything u did to the letter and still nothing.I might have to try another sd card. I used a 32 gig card. Any suggestions ??

    So much easier to understand than the step by step given on Yuneec. Many thanks.

  21. Biohacker 27 on November 18, 2020 at 9:15 pm

    I just got my Q500 today…..you’re a fucking wizard at this!  Thank you so much!!

  22. Walshie B on November 18, 2020 at 9:16 pm

    Nice video, I have the q500 4k, i followed all the steps but it just fails at updating from its current out of the box software of 1.07, it wont update to 1.08 or 2.4, it says the .bin file from their website is the wrong size, and fails to connect after, Their support hung up on me so after 3 hours of owning this drone it’s going back and I’m going to DJI hopefully with more luck. Seeing as they can’t get a simple thing like firmware right :

  23. Big Jim Flying on November 18, 2020 at 9:17 pm

    you make it look so easy.

  24. Caleb Plays on November 18, 2020 at 9:17 pm

    When I was trying this just know the remote caught on fire

  25. Ron Triano on November 18, 2020 at 9:19 pm

    followed the inst to the letter, but trying to choose TX file is shows no update, I must have done something wrong

  26. Franchesca Croft on November 18, 2020 at 9:20 pm

    Thank you for making this video!!!💗

  27. steve Meadows on November 18, 2020 at 9:24 pm

    well….I tried to power up today,and your right very turn key.Anyway the screen came on and showed warning ‘no fly zone’ see yuneec.com for more info.So i called tech support,and she told me there was some paper work to fill out noting major and i get them send them back to take off restrictions. I told her i was 5 miles from our tri state airport and wanted to get this restrictions lifted.There sending software to change this for me,so i can fly around my place. Have you ever heard a similar situtation

  28. Nick Walters on November 18, 2020 at 9:24 pm

    How would I know if I’ve got the latest firmware on the ST10 plus if I’ve got a drone off a good friend of mine

  29. Lamount Hicklin on November 18, 2020 at 9:25 pm

    Question, I downloaded the ST-10+ firmware from the website and extracted to my SD card but once I proceed to update, the file does not show at all. What can I do to fix it?

  30. Hankerson Photography & Video on November 18, 2020 at 9:25 pm

    i dont have an RF or TX?????????

  31. Michael Crear on November 18, 2020 at 9:27 pm

    Thanks
    Nice video

  32. steve Meadows on November 18, 2020 at 9:28 pm

    thank you sir. T he reason my question about Calibration is because,i had a Hubsan h501s x4and you had to Calibrate every time.If you hit rt home function,it would try and fly to my last calibration site.So it’s not necessary to calibrate every time this is good to know.Can i calibrate it after first flight ?

  33. David Sapadin on November 18, 2020 at 9:28 pm

    Great help. Update failed first time, so when all else fails, reboot the drone. Worked the second time. I was also able to download an update for the camera. Is that something covered in a later video, or something I should avoid. I just got the drone back from Vertigo Drones for minor repair and tune up because of lack of use. You’d think they’d check the firmware, but the Drone was back on Ver .01 or maybe .2, can’t remember exactly, but the upgrade took it to 1.07 Saw no available firmware download for the ST10+ so I hope I’m up to date! Thanks – easy to follow video even now that the web site at Yuneec is all over the place!

  34. Lamount Hicklin on November 18, 2020 at 9:29 pm

    Should I do a factory reset, then do the update?

  35. KEITH KUHN on November 18, 2020 at 9:32 pm

    I AM GONNA PASS THIS FORWARD
    KEITH

  36. John Polchinski on November 18, 2020 at 9:34 pm

    When I try to update the controller, I follow your directions step by step but I do not get a .Bin file to choose under the TX file spot. Its on the media card and I did not alter the files at all. All I did was extract that first Zip file to the media card. I’m so frustrated, can you please help me or explain why the bin file is not showing up after powering on the remote? Thank you, John

  37. Charles Finley on November 18, 2020 at 9:34 pm

    Finally a to the point Video on how to get something done. Liked and Subscribed!

  38. Lamount Hicklin on November 18, 2020 at 9:35 pm

    I know, that’s why I don’t understand why my still shows the old version after it said the update was successful.

  39. steve Meadows on November 18, 2020 at 9:37 pm

    question?? do you have to calibrate the craft on every location? the reason i ask is i had to with the hubsan. Every location was different i had to Calibrate it.With this model q500 does it also need to be r calibrated again

  40. Captain 1985 on November 18, 2020 at 9:38 pm

    Jeff, you, Captain Drone, and Drone World have the best and informative videos on drones. Great job. BUT:
    Good Heavens, this entire process is a PIA. I was hoping the Q500 updates were less complicated than the "H" but it doesn’t seem so. It’s only because of this complicated process that I chose not to buy either one of these units. Yeah, with DJI you have to use your phone or tablet but the update process is done automatically via my home WiFi.
    Both companies have their Pros and Cons; to use a metaphor, you just have to choose your poison. YMMV.

  41. Matthew Garrett on November 18, 2020 at 9:39 pm

    Totally out of date! Looks nothing like this. Absolutely no way to follow it.

  42. D Will on November 18, 2020 at 9:40 pm

    You saved my life with this video! Thanks!!! I can now enjoy my Q500 4K

  43. KEITH KUHN on November 18, 2020 at 9:41 pm

    WOW JEFF THIS IS SOME FUNNY STUFF, I MUST GET
    BACK TO IT NOW
    KEITH KUHN

  44. Reynaldo Reyna on November 18, 2020 at 9:42 pm

    Do I need to update the firmware wen I first get it

  45. David Munkhoff on November 18, 2020 at 9:43 pm

    Thanks, Jeff! You made this process so easy for me! BTW: You helped me decide to buy the Q500 4K.

  46. steve Meadows on November 18, 2020 at 9:43 pm

    I’m sorry that question was supposed to say…can i update firmware at anytime? in other words can i calibrate it and fly it first before firmware updates thank you

  47. OVERMILWAUKEE on November 18, 2020 at 9:43 pm

    Jeff, thanks for the video on updating the ST10+. I’m trying to update mine, I’ve done it before no problems but this time I keep getting the "zip not exists" message. Tried different cards, 8GB no dice. The latest build available on Yuneec download page is b30c with a release date of 1/1/2016. that doesn’t seem right. Is there another source for the latest build? Odd that it would be somewhere else. Am trying to update 2 st10+ transmitters and get the same error message on each one. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

  48. growrationally on November 18, 2020 at 9:44 pm

    better video than official yuneec channel.

  49. samnella9 on November 18, 2020 at 9:44 pm

    Hi – this might have been asked before but here goes. Since the yuneec batts do not have leds – what is the best way to find out how much voltage is remaining.?

  50. Radosław Jaroszewski on November 18, 2020 at 9:45 pm

    Hi!!!!
    I am writing to you because no company from Poland has responded to my email regarding the CGO3 camera. I have typhoon G and bought a CGO3 camera. Everything works fine except range of transmition video. It lost the connection at 60 meters. I have a question. On the yuneek pages I read that gimbal cameras in europe have limited transmission (power). But so much? I mounted the panel antenna and it is the same. I also read that it is possible to write standard firmware. May I write to the CGO3 Camera with CGO3GB v2.4 firmware firmware ver. CGO3 Camera CGO3GB v2.4 STD (after changing the number to 2.5) It’s just for checking if the camera is working properly. Please help. Best wishes, Radek
