Since I received the telemetry unit I can't get them to connect no matter what I try from all the forum posts.
When I try to connect with the APM Planner software ver. 1.191 or 3DR Radio config util. I get the following:
Using the Connection Mavlink button in the top right with proper com port (6 for tx or 8 for rx) and 57600 baud always fails giving "No Heartbeat Packets Received'. When I load the Tx or Rx(with FTDI cable) I have identical values because I have updated the firmware for each.
With both Tx and Rx connected to PC(Win7 x64) I get (.5 second) blinking green lights.
If I connect Tx to PC and Rx to my model(APM2) the Tx has blinking green light (solid for about 3seconds and then two one second blinks) and Rx has blinking green on with bright fast blinking red light.
I have APM2 with 3DR 915Mhz telemetry.

Can anyone suggest some next steps? Thank you.
