Power supply voltage low?

Peter
Are you powering the 4 boards in series? Or each one individually? What power supply do you use? What servo channel I/O have you connected? Finally, are you unplugging the gps when you try to upload code?
power is by rx battary 4.8 volts. they are not in series I am unpluggung the gps. I have not conneted the I O as they powered up ok last night
Paul,

If battery voltage gets to around 4.3 volts, the boards will act flakey.

Paul,

Just so I'm clear, can you explain in more detail what the issue is with each of your 4 boards> 1: issue. 2: issue., etc..

If you can't load code on any board, the problem is almost certainly your FTDI cable, drivers or Windows setup.

Chris
I think the voltage is my problem thank you all
I have 3 cables all failed I am sure now it's voltage. I least I hope so
