Tbh I've been really busy, not had much time to fly anything and with conditions being crap, hopefully in the new year I'll have some new projects on the go, mostly to do with HAM radio, will certainly fly again soon. FTR I hate FB too   :D Merry Christmas

Windows 8 -APM drivers / FTDi drivers

Windows 8 does not  like unsigned drivers.. therefore many of the FC';s and adapters that we use will not install automatically and trying to install the drivers will fail.. often without much indication of the reason..

After a bit of Googling... there is a work around that disables the driver signature enforcement... in Windows 7 you had the option when you installed the device.. in Windows 8 it is enforced...  so to disable...  do the following..

1. Click on the Windows Key + R
2. Enter shutdown.exe /r /o /f /t 00
3. Click the "OK" button
4. The System will then restart to a "Choose an option" screen
5. Select "Troubleshoot" from "Choose an option" screen
6. Select "Advanced options" from "Troubleshoot" screen
7. Select "Windows Startup Settings" from "Advanced options" screen
8. Click "Restart" button
9. System will restart to "Advanced Boot Options" screen
10. Select "Disable Driver Signature Enforcement" (press number on keyboard for option shown on screen)
11. Once the system starts, install the APM / FTDI / Arduino drivers as you would on Windows 7

Thats the problem every time they release a new version of windows there are driver problems maybe they should put more work in to compatibility before rushing it out to market  ~~
