    Righto -please someone help

    I have upgraded firmware on Typhoon H no problem
    Have a clean micro SD card 4MB with ST16_V3.1.22.yuneec on it and nothing else.
    Have turned off ST16 & Typhoon
    Have inserted SD into ST16
    Have turned on ST16
    Have waited till booted
    Have tuened on Typhoon
    when upgrade comes - says

    Cant find it

    Others seem to have had success - is my SD reader dicky, or have I missed something

    Any steer really appreciated

    Hmmm. You mentioned a "clean" SD card. Did you re-format it before putting the ST16 file on it? Someone mentioned the format had to be FAT32 or something like that. Don't quote me on the FAT32. But it has to be a certain format.

    I had my "H" turned off. I don't think that would have any impact....

    Your H needs to be on. I had the same problem. As soon as I turned the H on it worked.

    Weird... mine worked and the "H" was off. I followed the instructions on the Yuneec created video. It never mentioned anything about the "H" having to be on. Maybe they need to clarify..

    I just updated mine a couple hours ago. Had the same issues even after multiple attempts of formatting. I found that the ST16 wasn't reading the card at all. That in the settings/storage, i needed to "Mount" the SD card. It was then that everything went smoothly.

    Would be nice if manufacturer points out why firmware update is needed or even essential. Contents of firmware package are always unkown. More no fly zones updates, perhaps?

    I found that the SD card must be formatted as FAT. The ST16 can not read an EXFAT formatted card. But the CGO3 camera can!

    To update the ST16 you need to insert the SD card into the camera as that seems to be the default search location for any updates.

    My ST16 didnt recognize the SD card, I did everything(!), format in FAT32, used original card, used Samsung card, booted the ST16 several times, nothing worked.

    The ST16 acts like there is no SD card.

    But I did the update anyway, without a SD card, here is how:

    - plug a micro usb cable into the ST16
    - plug usb into your pc
    - windows will recognize it as a media device (like a phone or mp3 player), if not, please install GUI from Yuneec homepage and try again (you only need the usb driver).
    - click device in windows explorer
    - copy the update file into root folder
    - go to system settings, about controller, ST16 perform update
    - it will work. without any sd card in the ST16

    thank me later :)
    (took me a few hours and 30 different SD cards to find this out.)

    Have you tried "mounting" the card in the Android system?

    any micro SD shows up in the Typhoon H camera and windows and MAC OS computers just not the ST16. I have an email into Yuneec CS outlining the issue and have not heard back yet..... that was 3 days ago.

    Thanks for your replys everyone
    To answer your Q's Mikeinez:
    do you have aftermarket charger to test battery ? yes and am able to charge battery thru that on a charge of 99% Battery seems ok

    or it could be the controler call yuneec cs 844-898-6332 to see what they come up with might just replace the st16. I have an email into CS outlining this issue waiting on an answer...... its been 3 days..... I guess i need to call

    is it the sd card that came with if not did you format the new sd card ?It is the same SD that came with my H. and i have tried several others as well

    Personally i think its the ST16 main board.........
