    Hi all!

    I want to update my drone firmware so I went to:
    https://www.yuneec.com/en_US/support/downloads/typhoon-q500-4k-en-US.html

    there are 3 versions for the drone (and only 1 for the controller):
    - Firmware Typhoon 4k Q500 v1.07
    - Firmware CGO3 STD CGO3GB v1.80
    - Firmware CGO3 Camera CGO3GB v2.4

    Do I need to install all in this order or only the last one? I've never seen more than 1 file for a firmware update.

    THANK YOU for your feedback / help.

    - Firmware Typhoon 4k Q500 v1.07 is for the Q500 Quad

    - Firmware CGO3 STD CGO3GB v1.80 is for the 4K camera, the v1.80 is wrong it is actually v2.4 after you download it. This is used in North America

    - Firmware CGO3 Camera CGO3GB v2.4 is for the UK so don't use this one

    - Firmware ST10+ Build st10+v01b30c is for the ST10+

    First of all THANK YOU for your fast and qualified reply. Actually I'm from Europe/Austria and I heard that the EU-version is limited considering range/height due to law restrictions - but I'm not sure. Do you know the differences between the US and EU firmware versions? I'm considering installing the US version; when I'm on vacation outside the EU I don't want to be limited to 120meters height (of the drone).

    Thank you in advance!

    EU version is indeed limited.
    Standard version is about 600 meters distance
    EU version is 300 meters distance.
    The height can be adjusted in the GUI to a max of 3200 feet I believe but you would be crazy to go that high :)

    EU does have restrictions so thats is why there is a difference between the two but lots of people from the EU run the North American standard version. Just don't mix up the two.

    I have had my Q500 4K for about 6 months now, and I keep hearing about all these problems with firmware updates........I am a beginner so I hope this question is not to dumb........but as long as my bird is performing as it is supposed to and I am having no problems at all with it............why would I want to upgrade the firmware, and take the chance of screwing it all up ? Like I said, I hope this is not a dumb question......
