    My Nav250 is running firmware version 2.0. In order to update to 3.0 it says the TX must be running FW v1.2 or higher. I’m not sure how to check that. Also, do I download the Nav250 firmware to a PC? I don’t quite get it.

    Yes Jim goto drone art and lookup navigator in the tabs it will say download,you will download a file that has everything in it you need.you will install the eye loader on to your computer,the other files are the firmware.Same thing for your transmitter,There are also very very good videos on youtube that will walk you through it.Also in your box will be a sheet of paper telling you step by step how to update and what the update does.If all that doesnt help come back here and i will walk you through.It deff makes a diff upgrading firmware.

    My R8 TX already has two pages of telemetry data does that mean its already upgraded? Also what does the satellite data mean when it says 4/ 2

    Why does the GPS data count down ? Thanks.

    I just realized my Nav250 did not come with the cable necessary to upgrade the R8 firmware. Was it supposed to?

    Hey jim far as i know there was always 2 pages on the telemetry.Its not really a count down its trying to find 7 out of 7 sats.You will notice when you fire it up the blue light on the back usually blinks rapidly for a min or two and slows down or stops whens its got 7/7.it if its a slow repeats it means it has a few sats.when i fire mine up i let it grab all sats,then i flip into the mod i want so i can always switch back to GPS if im in trouble.Yes the drone is alittle bit of a learning curve.I prob drove jamie crazy and chris.but you couldnt get a better group of people.did you get a manulo with you navigator?If so look up upgrading and you will see a USB plug under the right side carbon fiber,Just pull both screws and slide the panel up but be careful its sharp.Also the pin on the arm that was broke they are fragile dont tighten them to tight they break.i keep mine folded out usually.If you fly with legs down you will break legs.All this is from exper belive me i sacrificed a navigator to learn poor thing i beat the hell out of it even cut engines 30 feet in the air and it still flew,you might have to buy a few arms but 10 bucks is nothing and i can show you some tips there also lol.Oh so sorry as you can see i love my navigator.It doesnt come with USB cord there dime a dozen.hope it helps jim.C

    <p style=”text-align: left;”>Hey Tygger, thanks for getting back to me. At least now I know I’m not the only one out here. Yeah, I know Jamie and Chris. I’ve bothered them since March 2016 when i got my  first EOX …haha. It will all work out. Even though I haven’t flown it yet, I got the feeling this is a great drone.</p>

    Hi Jamie

    Thanks for getting back to me. I can’t update the Nav firmware to 3.0 without updating the R8 first. It didn’t come with the cable to connect to the R8. How do I get one? The R8 says it’s running firmware version 1 Jan 29 2016 but it has two telemetry screens which according to your video the two screens are available with the upgrade. Does this make sense to you?

    Hey Jim,

    I will double check and confirm, but this should be correct. With the new update the date wasn’t changed in the firmware which sometimes causes confusion. But as long as you have the 2 pages of telemetry you should be good.

    Again I will double confirm this.

    Thanks Jamie. I’ll wait until your confirmation before updating the Nav.

    Hi Jamie, were you able to get any confirmation concerning the R8 firmware? Also is it possible to let me know the exact thread size of the arm fold screws? I’m gonna try to find them at a hardware store. We’re gonna have a little warm up here after the Polar Vortex and it gives me a small window of time to get up in the air outside

    thanks

    Hey Tygger. I found out what you said about the landing gear. I broke one on my first flight outside. I tried to remove it but the screw just turns       It has a weird connector on the back

    I have an idea for a mod l’ll let you know how it works.
