Futaba 18SZ

I am new to this site. I am looking for some help with my 18SZ. I'm just trying to run an update and it won't read the sd card. I might not have the correct card or in the process I'm missing a step. I am using iOS. Did try windows also.
Thank you

I runs macs. Sadly, you generally need to use Windows. I run BootCamp on my Macs.

Make sure you format the card in the TX first

How do you format in the transmitter. I've looked everywhere and tried a lot of different things. No luck. Missing something.

I've never formatted a card. I simply use them.
A couple of things to know.
1 - you do not need a huge card. 8GB-16GB, even a 2 GB card is ok.
2 - You should avoid super fast cards. A simple Cat4 or Cat10 card is fine. In fact, super fast cards may not work at all.

Do I need to open the files a certain way? Or just download the 3.7 and insert. The transmitter just turns on normally. No downloading. The card is a sdhc.
Thanks for all the help.

You need to follow the directions for updating on Page 184 of the manual
