Shout box not ideal for discussions!  BMFA affiliated clubs do not HAVE to force achievement tests no more than they HAVE to allow any specific type of model. There are plane only, there are Heli only, etc.

Hi all my ubec blow up I put the led in the wrong socket on the apm and it went bang .

I';ve replaced the ubec and it';s working but the apm 2.6 will not connect to pc I';ve tried to put new firmware on it buts says  no packet received and on Misson planner says can';t access bootloader .

The apm is working other than not connecting to pc .

Any help would be great.


Possibly a blown diode or 3.3v regulator, I';d say the latter!


If your good with a soldering iron it';s not too bad, and it';s cheap too!
Have a look in the arducopter forum for my thread titled "2nd apm to die"
Most is explained there!


Turns out I burnt the board really bad and blew the gps unit up too . New one on order .



I put the wire from the battery that I thought was the led indicator for the apm tunes out it was 11.1v lol


Ah, I see... Gutted mate, they are very temperamental little things!


Found this part has a burn mark on it any one know what It is?


I';d say that if you';ve put 11.1v into something that was expecting 5v then its pretty much screwed. Even in the short time it takes for any fuse/diode to blow the voltage will have done a lot of damage to the various IC on the board.
