I am as beginner as it gets.
I ordered this:
The one I got looks like this:
I attempted to follow this for setup:
I keep getting stuck after the firmware is uploaded and verified. I have tried the latest release of the mission planner software. It gets stuck right after the firmware is verified and I click connect. It can't connect. If I use the wizard, it gets to the point where the little box pops up and says "get params". It does not advance past that.
I get the same result with the two previous releases.
I also tried it with the release the gentleman is using in the youtube video (1.3.16). I get a little further with this one. If I follow the video exactly, not using the wizard, It does connect and gets to the point were it says "Got param RC1_MIN". It does not advance past this point
I have tried 4 different usb cables. I have tried every usb port on my computer. I have tried identical strategies more times than I can count. I have looked through some forums. I have not found a solution.
Does anyone know what I am doing wrong? Does anyone have ideas they would be willing to share?
