I bought my Rave ENV Nitro FB and Total-G when they first came out as a preorder. Also ordered a FBL conversion kit, but ended up buying the parts needed to convert later. Well, work comes first and my schedule kept me busy, so I have had all my stuff sitting on a table ready to build. I have 5 weeks off soon and want to get this build running soon.

I see there are firmware udates and what not. My question is, what all do I need to do to get it all updated since the Rave ENV flyers have some time under their belt with this heli. Thanks guys.

2.0 is the latest update, it is on Curtis's website. You will need to do the flight control side and the tail gyro side as two separate updates, other than that the ENV's are flying great...get that bad boy in the air

Okay thanks. I never opened the box and is there a dongle for updates or do I need to buy it? Thanks again.

Everything is in the box. There is a special usb connection cable included. There are specific setup instructions on the website for setup. Use the Detailed Setup Instructions.

The "upgrades" is in the 2.0 version. Download the latest version software (2.0) and load it on your PC. Remove the version 1.0x first if you installed that.

When your ready to update the Total G, power up your heli, wait for the Total G to initialize, then connect with the software, select Programming, Bootload Firmware, then select the latest firmware version (the latest date released), then follow the screen prompts.

Repeat this process for the tail.

If I don't have it flying by then we can run our fingers thru the parts bags.

No, I've been busy at work. After May 7th, I can start working on it hopefully flying by the Heli FunFly. I was trying to get two floatplanes flying, but they can wait until June when it's hot and I can sit in my folding chair in the lake up to my butt in water.
