  • Hi marcin,
    Schenoni using a ground module, is it necessary to cut the wires going to the ftdi chip, or can be soldered in parallel , tx and Rx ?
  • It's still a work in process I keep hitting little walls! So far all I have really managed to do is change the Baud rate higher that my Arduino can read (15800)

    No idea how to revert it via the Arduino!

    Currently I just brought a 'On the go' cable (OTG cable is around £4 on ebay) that i plug into my Samsung Galaxy S4 and I just plug the USB module into that!

    I havent had my quad up for a while time/weather etc...

    Sorry I can't be much of a help!
  • I am in the same position as you with the same components and trying to achieve the same thing. Have you had any success in getting it working? Any help you could give me would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
  • This is my module! Looks nothing like 3DR's I don't think!

    USB has 4 pins that I need fairly easy to solder too but I don't know what pins are what and I can't find the schematics!
