Updating FLAIM Trainer

Updating FLAIM Trainer takes two stages, the first update that needs to be completed are the programs that operate in the background; the second update will be the FLAIM software that operates above those stage one programs. 

 

You must first determine which hardware version you are using:

A T3 system is the latest hardware version available, the computer is built within the hose reel.

A T2 system is an earlier hardware version, the computer is build within the SBCA backpack.
