Quote from: James.D on Saturday,January 31, 2015, 19:39:39 Hoping someone will have some idea what to do or try.I have a CC3D fc for some reason I can';t get it to connect with openpilot to set it up.When I plug it into usb Port power led lights up and the status led flashes but when I run setup it won';t connect.Any ideas?
Quote from: Friskle on Saturday,January 31, 2015, 20:09:32 Same as me, mine was not the cable though, i hadnt installed the Drivers :)but it can also be a dodgy cable.
Quote from: Jake Bullit on Saturday,January 31, 2015, 20:40:08 Try uninstalling the gcs software then reinstalling, the cdc drivers should install unless you deselect the option to install.
Quote from: flybywire on Saturday,January 31, 2015, 23:41:25 Yeah, it';s probably a driver issue, is it 7? Mine refuses to work with Win 7, but luckily i have a Mac, and that does work!Sorry, probably no help to you James. Have you looked in device manager, see if it shows up at all?
Quote from: bazzerh on Sunday,February 01, 2015, 00:28:49 Mine used to work with Windows, and now they don';t. Have 3 boards and all the same. Different versions of Windows on different machines doesn';t solve it either. Installed ubuntu on a cheap old netbook and they';re all as happy as Larry talking to that. Gave up trying to figure it out now. Not good though is it?
Quote from: James.D on Sunday,February 01, 2015, 00:39:26 Think I';ll just scrap it and buy a new FC, If you were a beginner like me what fc would you buy?
Quote from: bazzerh on Sunday,February 01, 2015, 01:05:09 Probably a naze acro. Seems where the smart money is. Good price nowadays too. I will try again with a board that I thought was bricked cos I got it to speak to ubuntu the other day. Will read through the openpilot wiki again and reinstall the boot loader and see where I can go from there. Have u tried the rescue approach in the firmware menu within gcs? Does erase all settings unfortunately
Quote from: Friskle on Sunday,February 01, 2015, 01:07:17 if im honest, though i got my CC3D working ok, i could never stop some oscillations on it, no matter what alterations i did, was starting to think it was either an ESC or motor problem, then decided to say sod it, and ordered an Acro Naze from Phil, benn swapping out the CC3D for that tonight, left it all at default settings and it literally came straight up, no oscillations as i could see, so very pleased, will get another, then replace the other KK2 with it.as far as first tests go, the Naze was far more successful, i also found Baseflight, easier to use than the Openpilot GCS, but then a have always been used to DJI`s plug n play.so long as you can get it sorted to connect though, you may find it ok, but i have now given up with the CC3D, either sell on or Bin it...it flew fine, but the oscillations were just to damn annoying lol
Quote from: James.D on Sunday,February 01, 2015, 02:36:48 I gave in and ordered a nice new naze32 from phil.
Quote from: quadfather on Sunday,February 01, 2015, 04:19:21 This is the point when you realise you used a charge-only USB cable.
Quote from: quadfather on Sunday,February 01, 2015, 04:19:21 This is the point when you realise you used a charge-only USB cable. Before you toss the CC3D send it to me. I';ll pay the postage.
Quote from: Friskle on Sunday,February 01, 2015, 14:28:52 i never had that problem, some problems i had, it stopped saving settings odd times, the Arming setting would never work, and after 15 attempts of doing the exact same thing over and over it finally "worked".speaking for myself, also to many settings to deal with lol.
Quote from: James.D on Sunday,February 01, 2015, 13:02:57 motor 4 won';t spin as it should it just jerks about. I tried running setup wizard again but just got same result. Wiring all seems ok has anyone got any ideas what the problem is?Cheers James
Quote from: hoverfly on Sunday,February 01, 2015, 18:51:27 If a motor starts twitching it usually means it has lost a phase, this can be a dry joint or one of the windings bust,. Best way to test it is plug the esc directly into a receiver without the board and try to run it, It might help to reset the min/ max throttle settings for the esc first.Hope this helps.
Quote from: bazzerh on Sunday,February 01, 2015, 21:44:54 As for the motor be careful trying to spin it up. If it';s ruined it could ruin an esc too. Glad you got your cc3d working with windows. Think I';ll have to try again. Know my cable is fine but ill try your plugging in with no gcs running trick. I don';t suffer with any oscillations on mine. I did spend a day tuning it for my quad tho. Quite a lot of info on the wiki how to do it. Today I maidened a hj-y3 tricopter with cc3d onboard. Bit of rough tuning for the yaw servo and it';s flying very nicely.
