FYI: XM+ Firmware Upgrade for EU/UK Folk: Be Aware of this!


#1

So the EMAX Hawk 5 comes with the international firmware on the built-in Frsky XM+. This doesn’t typically work with your EU Taranis transmitter (lots of articles on this - go Google :slight_smile: )
When upgrading the firmware; something to be aware of - use the XM+LBT170313-RSSI16.frk and not the XM+LBT170313.frk or otherwise, like me, you’ll be scratching your head as to why you aren’t getting RSSI on your OSD!

Thanks for letting us know. Another tip, is that you need to rename the .frk file to be less than 8 characters long if you are updating from the taranis menus directly. Otherwise you will not be able to select it on your taranis.

(correct me if I am wrong as I have not been using an OpenTX radio for about 6 months now)

Copied the files directly to the SD card (USB doesn’t work on back of my Taranis) and then re-inserted. Clicking on the files (over 8 chars) worked fine :slight_smile:
