Hey kids,

Anyone know where to find and download earlier versions of the CC PHoenix series software?

I upgraded my CC35 to version 1.11 from their site -- and now my 400 DH is useless. If I look at their "download" page on their website, I don't see an option to go to earlier versions.....

am I missing something here, or do you need a magic decoder ring to find it?

Yes the lastest version (1.11) is known to cause some problems, thats why I didn't update mine and have left it at 1.10R for now, untill they fix all the faults.

I have 1.10R if you want. Just PM me.

Cheers, Hayden.

The latest version may have an error in current limiting function.

I am using V1.11R with no current limiting.

Your desktop application should have the last software revision available from the pull down menu. That's where I found it. BTY, hovered two batteries last night, no more problems.

I have a 400DH and a CC P25 running 1.11 fine. The only real problem is you can't use goveror mode you have to set up curves.

Yeh, Gov mode doesn't work with my Align 400SF, either. I'm using fixed modes with throttle curve.

I tried to load the 1.02 software in my CC35 just now. The Phoenix Link software tells me there are two versions available -- 1.02 (the one I want), and 1.11 -- the one I want to replace.

According to Bernie Wolfard at CC, all I need to do is select the 1.02 version in the drop down menu and update.

The link SW goes through the motions, then fails -- telling me I have an incompatible controller.

Anyone else had this problem? I'm stuck with 1.11 and it won't let my 400 DH motor run.

LOWANDSLOW -- you recently put 1.02 in your CC45 -- did you have any trouble? Since I can't change to an older version, I did an experiment with my 400 DH. I removed the main gear from the heli so I can fire it up with the missing head parts. This takes all the load off the motor. When I start it up, the motor dies at the same throttle setting as it did with all the load on it. I tried a bunch of times. Next, I set the current limit setting in the controller to DISABLED instead of INSENSITIVE. Doing so allows the motor to start and run just fine. It looks like the 1.11R software has a bug in the overcurrent shutdown code.

Now, if I can only get this crap 1.11 SW out of here, maybe my 400 DH will finally go.

OK -- here we go again. I've got the CC35 from hell. I want to load an earlier version of the CC35 software. I currently have 1.11R in it.

CC tells me to hook up the phoenix link and I'll be shown the "available" versions. Yup. I get shown two versions -- 1.021 (hooray), 1.11 (booooo).

I select the 1.021 version then tell it go do its thing. Load load load...followed by FAILED -- check your contoller version".

Downloaded the 1.021 installer from the CC link provided a few posts back...fire it up, and get told I have a controller that has newere software -- go away, and then the program closes. Dowloaded the 1.10 installer. Again, get told I have newer software and go away..

So, it looks as if I'm stuck with the 1.11 until something newer comes out. Anyone know how to install an earlier version of SW without the link software telling me it won't do it?

The P45 that I have in the Rex is a newer version so it works perfectly with the adaptor. You may have to send it back to CC. I have an older P35 and a 45 that won't talk properly with the USB adaptor. CC said to send it back and they can force feed the firmware to it. Still a bummer just the same. I went out and bought a new Align 25a controller for fear that the CC wasn't going to work with the 400DH. Guess I don't need it now. Heck, I may just keep it for my next Rex :-)

Mine's not having trouble talking with the USB controller, it's the Phoenix software that's being a real pain in the a$$ about software revisions...

I guess I'm going to have to use it as is with the 1.11 SW and just disable the current limit to get it to work with my 400DH.

Now if I can just get some spares to rebuild my Trex, I can give it another try.
