Spartan - Must Register before Firmware Update?
I am trying to update the firmware and use my Spartan gyro. I am not being permitted to update the gyro until I have registered it with Spartan. I can not find any reference to this in the manual or web site. I have tried to register my email address on the spartan site but I never get a confirmation email.

Is this Spartan policy now that you can not use their products without registering?

Does anyone know how to register the gyro with Spartan?

Yes. You must register your products before you can update them.

It's fairly straight forward. Go to the site, and click on "Register". Then, follow the instructions for "new users".

You should receive an e-mail shortly that contains a link. Follow the link, and register your gyros.

It took me about 15 minutes to update 4 gyros
Hell... I can fix that.
Uh oh..
Nope.
It's ***ked!!!
RE-KIT!!!!!

Is this a New Gyro? or did you buy it used?

If it is second hand the previous owner must flag it as sold. If not you´ll simply need to provide an email address, you may check your spam filter!!

No, it's brand new. I have 4 of them - all new.
I have no spam filter either.

Chris, sorry but that´s all I have in mind to help you. You may try another email address or maybe there is something wrong with Spartans server. Who knows!!

Hope you can register them soon!!!

OK, I did receive an email - several of them once I found out what was going on.

Even though I have not spam filter, Outlook still has a junk mail setting. The emails were in there. You have to then click on a link and fill out personal information, then you can add your gyro serial number and other information like where and when purchased.

I registered 4 gyros to version 2. I saved off my configurations first with the old version of the editor, then loaded firmware, loaded my profiles and tweaked the servo setting to the correct servo, nothing else seemed to need to be changed.

Phew, that seemed to take me more than it should have. If I was less frustrated with the registration process it would have helped....

Now I'm happy.

Angelos also responded: Thank you for your help.

Great to hear you got it worked out. A little pain at the start, but I think you will be happy with the results.
