Updating the 11X Firmware via SD Card

Read all firmware instructions thoroughly prior to updating your SD card. If you are not comfortable updating your 11X, contact Horizon Hobby Product Support at 877-504-0233 for assistance. Although model memory should not be lost during this process, it is always a good practice to back up your models prior to performing this update.

Before performing updates to your 11X, you must create the necessary folder and sub-folder on your SD to store the firmware update. You can do this using any computer that has an SD drive. JR recommends using SD cards with a minimum of 1 GB or higher capacity, which you can purchase through any computer hardware provider or retail outlet.

With your computer, create a folder on the SD Card titled JR, and then create a subfolder titled VERUP in the JR folder. Any JR Firmware updates will be titled XXXX.JRD. Copy the updated file(s) (XXXX.JRD file to the VERUP subfolder.

WARNING: When performing 11X firmware updates, DO NOT disconnect the battery while the update is in process. Doing so will create a non-recoverable corruption of the 11X firmware requiring you to send in your transmitter for service.

Prior to updating your firmware, ensure the battery has a minimum of 10.0V. If you have changed the default low battery warning, the battery voltage will need to be a minimum of 1V above the warning threshold.
