How do I update the Q1 software application on the Airmaster Q1 controller by myself?

 

1. What do you need before you start.

You need to install the Flashtool application.

You will also need an USBnano485 device (partnr Y07CMD0.00) to make a connection between the Airmaster Q1 controller and your PC.

In addition to the installation of the flashtool PC program, the USBnano485 device also requires additional drivers to be installed.
