    • Device Settings - Adjust the Wireless Channel, Wireless Power, Camera Type, and Motor Torque settings.
    • Firmware Upgrade - Displays the current firmware versions of the receiver and allows you to perform a firmware upgrade if an update is available. NOTE: Tap the Advanced button at the top right corner to re-download the firmware package, upgrade only certain firmware package contents, or force a firmware upgrade.
