Updating firmware on your Spider




  • Ian Orrman

    Do you have a firmware upgrade available on the Apple platform? I do not have any Windows systems. Ian, Perth, WA.

  • Luke McCarthy

    Hi Ian, 

    At this time unfortunately we do not have an updater that runs on OS X.



  • Troy Northrup

    Wondering if you have the Mac version avialable yet?

  • Adam White

    Is there any place on this site that you have a revision history of the Firmware updates?

  • Deanna Thomas

    I have updated the firmware. Hopefully this will do the trick. The spidertrack work good till take off then stops working.

    Hi, everybody!
    Please need help. On my S3 at connection, all leds is on and it doesn't work. I wanted to update it, necessary the driver for Win XP. Thanks

    Hi Everyone,

    To answer the questions:

    Troy - at the moment the Updating Application is only available for Windows 7 and 8. We will investigate an iOS version but I can't say that we will do one in the short term. Apologies for the inconvenience with this.

    Adam - Yes, https://spidertracks.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/200496350-What-firmware-do-I-have- please note, we will need to update the latest version and the updated features of this.

    SMA Africa - Please let us know how you have got on with the update. If you are still having issues please contact us through support@spidertracks.com.

    Crew - Are you able to send through an email to support@spidertracks.com with the issues are seeing? It may be that we need to repair or replace the Spider if this problem persists.

    Thank you,

    There aren't four buttons ! I know that ! Which of the three
    does the above ? I have an S3 Ian Macdonald

  • Ian Macdonald

    This can be your day for a good laugh !! I thought " why not look in the manual" ...........and solved the "problem". It's late winter nite here in Canada, and haven't flown for a while...so is that a good enough excuse ? Ian Mac

  • Luke McCarthy

    Haha, all good Ian. We have plans in place to make this more intuitive or at least explained on a card or something that comes with the Spider. I am glad that you managed to work it out. Cheers, Luke.
