Only if the battery is fully charged, leak a few volts and it'll be fine.......

Do you have admin privileges? I can';t load firmware unless I start Mission planner with admin rights. It can';t access the port without admin rights.

Just run as admin and this is what I got:

Check port settings or port in use? System. Unauthorized Access Exception; Access to the port 'COM8 Is Denied.
At System.IO.Port.Internal Resources.WinIO Error(Int 32 error code,String str) at System,IO ports and it goes on and on

How do I give Authorisation?
Gary

Paul01

If you have started Mission planner as admin then, the issue won';t be security if you still get that message. I had the same issue and until I had managed to flash the APM in APM planner it wouldn';t flash in mission planner, but would afterwards.

Managed to download APM Planner and up loaded Arducopter V3.2, the tiny little yellow lamp was flashing on the board, then it said verifying FW then said OK plus got that warning about motors starting at arming since 3.1!!
I then tried to do it all over again in Mission Planner with no luck!!
I then did it all over again in APM Planner so it should have 3.2on it!
Is there a way of telling which version is now installed on the board?
Gary

Paul01

In APM mission planner, click on Flight Data and then messages, the Version will be displayed there.

I must say a very big  :thankyou: to you all and especially Paul01 for your help and input and perseverance with me; this is what makes this the best forum around.  :beer2:

Hi,
Just disable all the other ports, leave only that one which the MP is using. It should work.

You do know 3.2.1 was the last version you could load onto an APM?

After that its Pixhawk PX4 only...
