Hi All

Last night I attempted to update the software on my 12Z.

I went to the Futaba site, downloaded the software onto my PC, unzipped the file, saved it to the CF card. With power off, I inserted the card into the 12Z, flipped the little switch up and turned on the Tx. The radio displayed, T12Z Program update complete.

Then I powered off the radio, flipped the switch down, removed the CF card and turned on the radio. I went to the gyro menu and the rate setting screen of each gyro is NOT displayed. The menu is the same as it was before loading the new software.

I uploaded the software a second time as described above and again, there were no changes to the Gyro menu.

Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks
Chuck

I assume that you are referring to the gyro menus for the CGY-750
By default only one gyro gain is setup (Rudder). You need to add gyro2(ail) & gyro3(ele) via the function menu (Linkage->Function) to their respective channels, thereafter they will show up in the gyro menu (Model->Gyro).

Yes, your assumption is correct. I must have missed reading that some where or is it documented?

I have not seen it documented. Also had the same confusion for a moment when I updated my 12FG sometime back.

Update:
I see the update document states "When using the gyro2/gyro3 function, assign gyro2/gyro3 to any channel on the function screen"
