APM Planner Unable to Connect

I just tried the update from 1.1.83 to 1.1.87 and now an unable to connect to the airplane.  No changes to the hardware, but the connect window keeps getting params and says "Already got ..." for a while, then aborts.  I'm using a Dell laptop with i7 cpu and Win7 and XBee 902 modules at 57600.  This happens regardless of whether the Maestro controller is connected or not.

Any suggestions?

    You must be using an older firmware are you?

  • That's possible, except that the XBee modules (from DIY Drones store) have work continuously and flawlessly for months.  Another user is also now getting comm problems-  http://diydrones.com/forum/topics/apm-planner-connect-problems

    And, when I fall back to .83, the problems go away.  I appreciate the plug for your radios, but this software has been successfully working with XBee modules for a long time.  And when the problem goes away by dropping back to a known working revision, well.....  You don't think it's possible that something in the support for the "new" radio has "broken" support for the "old" radio?

    BTW, the modules are XBee Pro's for the 902-928 mhz band.  If you'd like to buy a pair and try them out, here's a link to an online store that carries them -

    Andy, I just tried connecting with the 3DR radios and the MP 1.1.87 and it worked fine. Maybe something to do with your Xbees?

    What are XBee 902 modules? I'm not familiar with them?
