Into the NaviCtrl you can place a Micro SD-Card in the size up to 2GB (in FAT16 formatted).
If you want to read or change the data on the Micro SD-card, it must be removed from the NaviCtrl and plugged into an appropriate card slot on the PC.
On the SD-Card from the NaviCtrl there will be automatically a file generated named Settings.ini with the following content:
MAX_FLYING_ALT Here you can enter a maximum altitude which is required for i.e. a special license for the commercial use.
User without a license get also after reaching the max. altitude the same message but they are able to climb further up.
More informations about this you will find here: Max.Altitude - Example
MAX_FLYING_RANGE Here you can enter a max. flight-radius which is required for the special license and commercial use.
DESCEND_RANGE Here byou can enter a max. flight-radius which is required for the special license and commercial use.
For user without a license is the setting "DESCEND_RANGE" with no function.
To change those values you should insert and open the SD-Card directly
in ab appropriate slot on your PC. Here you can do the adjustment with

stored data - folder "LOG"
flight the Kopter will create once a folder "LOG" and save some
informations (for each flight) on the micro-SD-card in a .KML and a .GPX
You can take a look on this informations with the programm "GPX-Viewer" or "MK_GPX (Link)
Presentation of the flight data in Google Earth
Google Earth you can display and see the saved flight-datas of the
Kopter. In the actual Google Earth Version (>6.1) you can display the
(The flight-route will be also displayed in the height if you set up in the properties of the file the Height to Relativ to ground.)
The practice has shown that the default parameters (settings) are already sufficient for almost all MikroKopter.
For the data transfer between the Kopter and the PC you can use also a Bluetooth-Module or a Wi232-Module.
Further information for the Update (also if an update fails) you can get here: SoftwareUpdate
For updating the software you should always use the MK-USB.
To flash the bootloader is not necessary and also not possible.
you use the GPS-System (NaviCtrl + Compass + MKPGS) on your Kopter and
you calibrate the Gyros, you can see for a short time "error 6" + "error
