How to programme a dragon cam
You will need either a dragon loader card, or a Fun7 card, plus a card programmer.
Download the latest predator file from your favourite download site. Unzip it and make sure you know where its gone!
To programme the dragon loader card get a copy of dragon loader from
You will need:
Smartmouse compatible card programmer (something like an infinity or dynamite programmer)
The dragonload.exe program
-Connect the card programmer to com1 or com2, make sure the programmer is in 6 MHz mode
-By pressing the "Settings" button, you can change from com1 to com2 depending which com port your programmer is attached
If you have a Dragon Loader card:
Select sragon loader card in the drop down menu
In the file open dialog that appears, select the firmware you want to load (.dra file).
Load the .dra file
The card will now be loaded. (This will take a 3-5 minutes).
If you have a fun7 card:
Programme the flash with FUN7LDR.HEX
Progarmme the external eeproms with the predator bin file. If you are using infinity software select option 2 "reverse spanning" to split the file when asked. (Your programmer software needs to be able to split the bin file across two eeproms)
To change the firmware on the dragon, put the receiver onto a fta channel. Insert the loader card. Turn the receiver off. Turn it on, and navigate to
the common interface menu on your receiver.
Select the "Dragon Loader" module.
In the next menu, select "yes, Load module".
Now a menu appears indicating that loading is in progress. To see the actual percentage you will need to press "refresh" as there isnt any auto update.
Loading will take about 5-10 minutes, so dont be in any hurry to do it!
Remove card, and switch the receiver off then on again. Your dragon should now display the new version of predator.
Dont try what I did the first time, and try to do both sets of instructions on one card.....or you will get totally confused. Follow the top one if you have a Dragon Loader card.
