    My Typhoon H Plus doesn’t have 30 hours of flight time yet, and now it’s grounded because my ST 16 radio is flashing and no longer allows any control of the drone.
    Could you advise me to get out of this bad situation.

    Thank you in advance

    Eric,
    I do not have an ST16s, so my statements are very questionable.
    It looks like the operating system is corrupt. A factory reset may help, but it does not appear you can get into the screens to do that.
    Have you contacted Yuneec? It is likely you will have to send this in for repair. Especially if it is still under warranty.

    However, to assist more knowledgeable members to help you, you may want to provide some additional information:
    *Please clarify if your unit is a Typhoon H and the controller is an ST16, or if your unit is a Typhoon H Plus and ST16s.
    *Please describe anything that occurred to the controller between the last time it worked correctly, and the start of the issue. These would include things like firmware upgrades, addition of apps, dropping the controller, or anything you think may be related to the issue.

    Your ST16s is caught in a loop. It's very rare but it has happened to a few others with the H Plus.

    The good news is that you can fix it yourself in about 30 min. But the process is a bit tricky. I will post a link below which explains the process rather than repeat the whole thing here.

    You can skip the extraction part if you use this link to download the update.zip and the apk file.
