My flight controller won't connect to QGroundControl

I bought the KIT-HGDRONEK66 and I have assembled the drone. I followed the steps and downloaded QGroundControl. Whenever I go to update the firmware I plug in the flight controller it recognizes the flight controller but I get an error saying "Error: Sync: Send Command: Get Command Response: Timeout waiting for bytes to be available." I thought it was because I was on a windows ten but I downloaded it on a windows 8 and 7 and got the same error. I don't know what to do now.

Double check first that you have loaded the latest bootloader and the PX4 application by using the JLINK that is provided in the HoverGames Drone Kit. In initial versions update via QGroundControl was not functioning correctly.

Hello Jacob Betts

I suggest you to download all the available drivers for your kit. You can find them at this link under  PX4 Autopilot builds for RDDRONE-FMUK66  https://nxp.gitbook.io/hovergames/downloads#px4-autopilot-builds-for-rddrone-fmuk66

 

Let me know if this is helpful. If you have more specific questions do not hesitate to ask me.

Best regards,

Omar
