Hi, my name is Óscar and I'm working on a drone project.

I built my drone, test it several times and it flies OK. However, I just acquired a laptop and installed APM Planner 2 and can't get my APM board to connect to it since the APM Planner 2 won't detect COM ports.

I can connect my APM to a desktop I have and to my mobile phone though the radio, it's just the laptop. It uses windows 8 (I think it is compatible though).

Does anyone have a clue of what is happening, how to solve it or simply has the same problem?

Thanks in advance,

Óscar Moreno García.

Which board are you using? The issue you are experiencing is that the USB port might not be putting out enough power. Try connecting when using a battery on the drone as eel or over telemetry radios. Otherwise use a powered USB HUB.
