Updating Fliteboard & Flite Controller, & Syncing Session Data

  • Updated

The Flite App needs to be installed and a user account created to be able to perform software updates.

Updating your Fliteboard or Flitescooter: The Fliteboard or Flitescooter must be connected to the Flite App first. Please follow these steps to connect and update your device.

  1. Ensure the Fliteboard is powered on and the lid is closed. Turn off the Flite controller if it is turned on. This is very important as the Flite App can only connect to one device at a time and cannot connect to a Fliteboard if the controller is already connected to it. 
    • Pro Tip: Ensure your phone and Flitecell have at least 20% charge. 
  2. Open the Flite App and navigate to the "Devices" page. Select your Fliteboard from the list of available Fliteboards. When connected, the eFoils LEDs will turn purple. 
    • Pro Tip: Only have one Fliteboard powered on at a time. This will make it much easier to find the correct device.

  3. Once connected you can perform software updates and sync session rides. If a software update is available there will be an orange "Update" icon. If session data is found there will be a large "Sync Now" orange icon. Please sync your Session data to share with your friends, review your rides, and help Flite improve your experience. 
    • Pro Tip: In the Flite App you can change the unit settings & create Fly Zones
    • Pro Tip: Keep the phone close and in line of sight with the Fliteboard. Don't use the phone for anything else while the update is in progress.

Updating your Flite Controller: The next step is to connect your Flite controller to the Flite App. It is important to note that the Fliteboard needs to be connected to the Flite App first. If you haven't connected a Fliteboard to your Flite App, the Flite controller won't be visible. 

  1. Ensure your Flite controller is powered on and your Fliteboard is powered off. 
  2. Open the Flite App and navigate to the "Devices" page. Select your Flite controller from the list of available controllers. 
    • Pro Tip: Only have one Flite controller powered on at a time. 
    • Pro Tip: If the Flite controller is not visible or you need to force update the controller, then the controller can be put in DFU mode. To do this hold the "Minus" button down until the screen turns off, approximately seven seconds. Please note if the controller is not connected to the Flite App and an update started within 30 seconds, the controller will restart. 
  3. Once connected you can perform software updates. If a software update is available there will be an orange "Update" icon. Click on the update icon and follow the onscreen prompts. 
    • Pro Tip: Perform a trigger calibration after performing any software updates on your Flite controller. To perform a trigger calibration, please follow these steps:
      1. Hold the "Minus & Mode buttons" down for 3 seconds, or until "Trigger Calibration" is displayed.

      2. As soon as "Trigger Calibration" is displayed, release the buttons and follow the on-screen prompt.
