Trying to follow the directions on the manual, so that I can 1) update the ProgUnit itself to the latest firmware, 2) update my Kosmic200 to V.4.5.1.

The manual has two separate sections with different titles. "4.1 Updating ESC" and "4.2 Upsating the ProgUnit." When I read thru them, they both seem to be about updating the ProgUnit itself.

I assume I have to update the unit first. If that's correct, which section in the manual do I follow? Should I be executing 4.2 first, then do the 4.1? When I am done with 4.1, is my Kosmic updated to 4.5.1???

Sorry, but my intelligence isnt enough to extract the right steps to do this properly just by reading the manual... Help from the experinced would be very much appreciated.

I am sorry I cannot help you but only make you feel slightly better. I also find the German manuals to be lacking...

I was told at one point that the Germans feel if we are smart enough to purchase the product we should be smart enough to operate it. And I was told that this is a cultural problem between the Germans and the U.S. market as a whole.

I purchased a 3W 25% P51 war bird and the instructions for the most part consisted of a drawing with the CG located on it. That plane seporated the men from the boys when it came to assembling it. It was a well engineered kit and I was very happy with what I received but it severly lacked in the instruction area.

That was when the above quote was given to me.
