I'm using Planner 1.1.14 with a new APM2 board. Win XPpro and the Atmega2560 inf driver file from the repository.
Planner loads and verifies the 2.27 firmware but it does not connect to the APM2. I have used Putty and it does reset the APM2 on connect and I do see packets with mixed binary/alpha content (presumably MavLink).
When watching the APM2 board, it does not appear to come out of reset after Planner opens the port. Since the reset step works correctly with Putty, it seems as though Planner is holding the reset line for some reason.
Should I add this as an "issue" ?
