Part 1: Software Installation

Welcome to the HoverflyGIMBAL Setup Guide. This article is the first in a series that teaches the user how to setup their HoverflyGIMBAL for optimal performance. In this section, we will install the software necessary to operate and configure the HoverflyGIMBAL.

1. To begin, download and install both the Hoverfly Firmware Update Client and the the HoverflyGIMBAL Setup Client.

Note that this software is written for Windows 7; it has been shown to work on Windows 8 barring other software conflicts. It is not Mac-compatible.

2. Connect the HoverflyGIMBAL to the computer using the provided USB to mini-USB connector cable.

3. Open the Hoverfly Firmware Update Client and follow the instructions. (Note that the "Select Mode" tab will be skipped, as it does not apply to this product.)

4. On the final tab, "Flash Firmware," choose the highest-numbered version/revision of the firmware available to you, then click the large button labelled "Flash."

The current firmware version is 1.9rev3 at the time of this writing.

5. When the program responds with a "Flashing Success!" message, you may close the Hoverfly Firmware Update Client and proceed to the next link:
