    I added H3-2D gimbal to my P2, then tried to upgrade RC firmware to V1.0.1.11 with RC Assistant Software. I got a message that the upgrade failed. The RC red power indicator went out when I got the fail notice and now it seems to have no power. I'm stuck. Is there a reset button on the Remote Control? I also installed new AA Bats, but nothing. Anyone else have this happen?


    Other posts seem to imply that "I have Bricked my TX".

    I am still looking for remedy.

    Hi, I have had my controller apart several times for mod's and upgrading and have never found a reset switch. You got a bad firmware install, but it should have allowed you to retry the install at the same time. I would suggest removing the batteries and turning the power switch on and leave it for 30 minutes to allow any CMOS or charged caps to drain to zero. Then turn the switch off, install batteries, attach USB, start RC software, then switch the power on and see it it connects or gives you a message. If that does not work then I guess you only other option is to contact support.
