HereLink Beta update no longer working?

Hello everyone,

after a reset using the provided windows update tool and an update using WiFi the beta update will not proceed. (it once did)

This video shows the update behaviour:

Do I miss something? :thinking:

Thanks in advance!

I found a post about a similar behaviour: Problem updating/downloading maps in Solex TX

I’m checking my network now.

Nope, network (192.168.0.x) works fine but still no beta download :frowning:

I don’t know if they updated this beta firmware after the initial publication, but the initial publication was very buggy and even failed to calibrate the sticks for me.
If you are a developer it might contact them directly and if not I would very much recommend to stay with the stable version.

Beta channel update does not seem to work for me as well. It will show that update is available (so herelink internet connection works) - yet it wont download/install new firmware. Latest stable firmware has old QGC (v3.5.6) - which does not play nice with latest stable Ardupilot 4.x series. When can we finally expect QGC 4.x on Herelink? It seems to take ages to get new herelink software versions out. Are there any efforts to get better on the software release cycles? @philip @sidbh any comments?

I own two Herelink units - and I have been patiently waiting for years to see some improvement on the software release cycle side - yet there seems no real improvement. I think it took almost 2 years to get initial stable firmware out for Herelink - and at current pace it seems to take another 1-2 years to get QGC 4.x (and next stable major update) on Herelink. Im sad to say this - but please understand - that it is not really possible to use Herelink in commercial grade UAV builds - unless we start seeing more frequent and transparent software update cycles - fixing bugs and updating app versions.
