"I've figured the issue out. I was able to try out a second Navio2 out with the same equipment and it worked to perfection. It appears that the issue was the UART port in the original Navio2 - it appears to be slightly damaged from having a wire…"

"I'm not sure what you mean by "modules". I'm on Windows 7, so I suppose the setup would be different there."

"Not easy. I have some modules (3DR or equivalent) and Comport is USB Serial Port (FTDI), version 2.12.0.0 26/08/2014, on a W10 setup."

"I can now confirm it's not a port issue. I tried another computer's ports and I got the exact same errors. I believe I have the right USB to UART driver (v.6.7.6), so that shouldn't be the problem."

"Wait, then what would that mean if just the air module was blinking red, and not the ground module? Yeah, it definitely might be a bad port. When I try the different USB ports, they all come up in Mission Planner as COM12. I thought that they should…"

"Red blinking is data transmit.  When the two units are connected (mission planner), the two units have red light blinking. If connection is not established, ground red (near the serial plug) is off. It could be a bad COM port selection or…"

"It's a Chinese clone that violated the 3DR trademark. It happens. That doesn't mean it doesn't work, just that it wasn't made or designed by 3DR. Caveat emptor"

Telemetry Issues - Connecting a Navio2 to Flight Planner using Radio Telemetry

I am having issues with connecting my Navio2 Flight Controller to my computer using 3DR FPV radio telemetry modules. As seen in the image below, I have both modules attached and each have green lights - though the one attached to the Navio2 has a red LED that is flashing as well. I am able to recognize the COM port that the USB module is attached to and through Mission Planner I have been able to assign settings to it and its remote counterpart. However, when I try to connect, it fails. The…See More
