Re: Tip on updating the Flytec 6030/ Brauniger IQ+

Yes this solution is something to have forever in stock when dealing with these older instruments. I thought it's pretty clever that we can bypass a later OS with a previous OS kinda hidden under the hood. We're lucky Volirium is still updating the device.

Tip on updating the Flytec 6030/ Brauniger IQ+

As some of you might have ran into trouble trying to update to the new firmware version (5.04a) which is a critical update, for without it you may have your GPS turn off mid-flight, thus invalidating the igc file, I thought about sharing what I did to overcome the lack of recognition of the USB comm...
