It started whenever I realized that I had been borrowing my wife’s uncle’s compound bow for 3 years and I wanted to return it to him, also with my shoulder getting progressively worse a lighter poundage bow or perhaps a crossbow would do me some good, so the research started and i came upon this starter set for $120 on sale it came with bolts, the bow, a scope, and some field points. After some research I figured out it had plenty of energy to take white tail deer though I was still kind of concerned it was borderline, though I went ahead and pulled the trigger on Amazon.
When I received the bow I was excited to get it put together and fire it, after a few shots I already had bent all of the aluminum bolts that came with it, and ended up buying some cheap carbon express wolverine 20″ bolts from Walmart and some cheap Allen broad heads and extra field points. To improve the accuracy I modified the scope rail because the scope already had yardage markers, and the play in the mount due to the zeroing system built into it kind of hurt the accuracy a bit, so I pinned the mount in place so it couldn’t move, you can see the process and data HERE.

Before we get started, here is an updated firmware I received from Crosstour to enable the menu item “beep” that turns off the beep sound every time you press a button.
To flash the firmware simply copy all of the files inside the folder onto the microSD card, insert it into the camera and then power it on, a blue light will apear and flash some eventually the camera will come on all by itself do not take out the battery or mess with it while this process is taking place. After flashing the new firmware be sure to go into the settings and set defaults or else it causes funny issues like webcam function not working.
