    G'day all.
    As an introduction from a newcomer, the names Paul and
    I'm a Brit living in Brasil. Been flying all sorts for longer than I care to remember, but if pushed will admit to having owned a single channel valve radio.
    These days I mainly fly UMX and gliders, though have dabbled with a few mini drones.

    However I have just acquired a QRX350 with a Devo 10, white, if that makes a difference New to me, but not new. Seems to be Ok, but looks like it may benefit from an update, it's on Devention and current version is:
    Software Ver 0.8A
    Library Ver 0.2

    So far I haven't come across a software download on the Walkera site, could some kind soul point me in the right direction please.
    Thanks in advance.

    Walkera don't do a lot of FW updates for their radios unless it has major issues.

    You are on the correct version of FW. Enjoy your drone flying.

    Cheers Brian

    Brian, thanks for the reply. I'm mainly Spektrum and quite happy with the technology. I'm enjoying the drones, just trying to figure out where the wings go :)

    I see there is a different flavour of firmware for the Devo (deviation ??). Any advantage in changing? I'm a founder member of the keep it simple club, so don't change things unless there is a major advantage.

    Deviation FW is a very powerful and feature rich smart Computer system FW. It is also not easy to understand or program. Its main benefit is if you install the 4 System module that allows you to talk to just about anyones RX units. It requires some soldering skills to rewire the radio.

    If you believe in Kiss then it's not for you.

    Cheers.

    JR, Spektrum and Orange are the only 3 radio brands I don't own. :)
