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

trouble with software

So I posted this in another section, but probably better here.  I have a Crius AIOP V2, and I loaded MegaPirates onto it a while back and all was good.  I recently attached the Rx and connected it all so I could start calibrating the ESC';s and get ready to test fly. 

I assume I must be doing something wrong, but when I attach to MissionPlanner, I can';t get any of the diagnostic tools to run, and don';t know where to begin with the calibration process.  I am not sure the board or MP are seeing the Rx, though its bound to the Tx. 

Lastly, I updated MP and then tried to run the calibration wizard.  That seemed to update the firmware of my board, but now after it boots only the ';B'; status light stays on, and connecting it via USB to my laptop doesn';t seem to work - MP does not recognize that its connected, and the COM port I used to use (3) no longer shows. 

Any idea  what I did, or how to reinstall MP and keep moving?  Thanks in advance.

Starting from the last bit, if it is a windows box open device manager and see what USB device is added when the FC is plugged in, then check for a Comm port with a different number.

It could be that Windows is replacing the driver or just giving it comm 5 etc. are you getting the number from the device manager or mission planner?

I think..........I think I am........therefore I am.............I think!

So I looked at device manager and it is showing on COM Port 3 now, like it used to, but still not connecting to Mission Planner.  The bothersome part is that the ';B'; status light just stays on; the ';A'; light used to blink once it was booted, but not now.

Darrell, I will look at that video as well, thanks for linking.

making progress.  I was able to reload MG via the flashtool today, so it looks like I am booting now and I can see the FC in Mission Planner.

Next item; I soldered the ESC leads to my board, and the battery leads to my board.  Is there a separate power connection needed from the battery to the board?  I have the ESC';s connected to my board (presuming they are connected properly) but it seems like only USB is powering it, when I connect just the battery it doesn';t seem to respond.  I am wondering if this is causing the issues of not being able to test or calibrate ESC and motors in MP.

So I finally got the quad in the air!  After much help from Peter King and loading new parameters to the FC, I was able to get it set up and running.

I flew a little on Monday, and the quad is drifting a lot, so I need to recalibrate the gyro and then check PID tuning after that, but it was exciting to get airborne.

Next up after the tuning is to configure and install the GPS and bluetooth, then after some flying practice, put the camera on it.
