When updating the firmware can you jump from version 3 to version 5 or must it be done in order?

Its all earth!

I believe it must be done in order.

If you want to "mostly" save your existing settings and parameters they should be done in sequence. If new and your not concerned you can make the switch from 3 to 5 before setting up the unit.

The Align instructions say you need to update in sequence. You can also write current settings to disk and reload afterwards.

The V5.0 PC software includes copies of all previous versions and they are easily loaded.

Go through setup again before flying.

Also ... before flying V5.0, hover your heli with the tail gyro set in normal/rate mode. Adjust the tail linkage so the heli hovers without turning left or right. Recheck your left/right travel limits and make sure the pitch slider doesn't bottom out. You can then go back and fly in heading hold. Do not skip this step.

Last weekend I updated a 3gx from version 3.0 to 5.0. Maybe I was lucky but it worked. Also,5.0 is substantially better while flying in strong wind.

We made up some rules can we have your moneys now.
