    1. I've tested 4.2.19 now for about 2 weeks. No issues whatsoever. I'd just keep it if I were you.

  9. My firmware came with the superfly but it came with FC 1.1.22 should I change it to FC1.1.23?
    I really don't see a difference on discrptions. Does it still limit the 250m height which I never didnt yet still keeping it safe at 75m high since I loose FPV and sometimes control.

  12. Hi Peter,
    Can you help, I have a "CHECK GYRO SENS" problem where the controller/quadcopter won't go beyond this stage. I've sent 9 emails to shally Liu and I'm not making any progress. I've fitted a brand new H501S-13 Gyro Sense board, Lipo nano tech 950mAh battery to the controller and still struggling to get any sort of flight. My TX=V4.2.14, LCD=V1.3.3, H501S RX=V1.2.9 and the FC=V1.1.17 I just don't know what to do next. Upon starting the controller everything looks ok, I then connect the battery of the quad initially the lights flash pink then go into a orange flashing mode and never come out of it, at this point the controller is stuck displaying the message "CHECK GYRO SENS". I don't know where to go next. Thanks Dave

  13. Hi Peter,
    I believe I may have found a typo error in your table RX (QUAD FW) for the sub-heading for RX V1.2.17 final column where you recommend downgrading due to follow me mode not working to V1.1.12 do you mean V1.2.12?
    Also do you have any updates for FC V1.5.25? as it's currently unknown.
    I hope to hear from you.
    Take care
    Dave.

    1. Found this link on another 501S forum. Consider it untested. Use at your own risk. Maybe someone here can collaborate/confirm. Good luck.

  18. Do you have any information about the new firmware for the transmiter 4.2.24?
    Thank you

  19. Hi Pete


    thank you for this. For Rx, you list 1.2.3 and 1.2.9 respectively. This depending on whether one has the old or later compass hardware type. How do I find out which module I have?

    Kind regards,
    David

  20. Hello, i just bought a Hubsan H501s (standard version) for my husband. I thought it would be a fabulous idea to upgrade the firmware to the newest version. But now i'm unable to bind the drone to the remote. All leds are solid pink-red. Any suggestions? Is there a chance that i can fix it by downgrading to an appropriate combination of firmware (FC, RX and TX) or did I damage something (sorry for my english). Kind regards. Tina

    1. If it doesn't bind you probably have the wrong RX firmware. I'm not at home at the moment so can't spend time trying to help at the moment, but if you need help quickly ask on the 501 Facebook group. You should be able to get it loaded properly again quickly.

    2. It worked .... it appears that we own a 501SS drone. I just installed all the files (found that on the FB-Group) and now everything works fine. Thank you sooooo much for your help.
