    I just got my Inspire and am trying to do the firmware update.

    It said to allow ~25 minutes, I'm not going on over 30 minutes and it's still making the dot matrix printer style sound.

    How long should this take?

    What sound is it? Like "D-D-D"? If so I think its safe to reboot it and upgrade the radio. Mine took like 10-15mins or so, but mine lost video signal so i didnt have any progress bar

    It was three D's...I eventually stopped it and checked the log file...Success!

    The upgrade manual clearly says 4 D's during updating, 3 when finished.

    @Kilrah yes thank you...what threw me off was the pause indicated in the manual...I wasn't hearing a pause.

    The controller upgrade was much clearer, as it had a status light to indicate upgrading versus upgrade complete.

    If only the aircraft had some sort of status light.
