EX-6 Firmware upgrade coming out

Looks like there will be a firmware upgrade soon for the EX-6. According to Kyosho, you will need the USB ICS dongle to do the update.

EX-6 Manager and firmware update:

https://www.kyosho.com/eng/support/i...ini-z/EX6.html

The manager lets you save, copy and edit models and other settings on your PC.

I updated my EX-6 to version 1.06. Had to run the VR setup afterwards.

Display is now only English.

Model settings were still there but I lost the name for some reason. I used the Laptop to connect the manager to it and programed all the names in then back it up.

Kris - I will bring my laptop and usb adapter for updating people who want it next month.

Larry - There were some minor bug fixes according the the Japanese Kyosho blog. Kyosho did not list what was fixed.
