I recently purchased a 3DR Aero drone and I would like to connect it to my laptop (Ubuntu 14.04 and APM Planner).
-I am a member of the “dialout group” so I can use the comm ports.
-I tried to push the “connect” button in the top right corner and get an error "Error opening port: No such file or directory"
I tried to follow the initial setup instructions and “updating the firmware”. When I get to the step where it asks me to unplug and plug back in the USB nothing happens and I just cancel out of it. By the way, since this is a factory built 3DR drone I assume I actually do not need to update the firmware? Also I am assuming I have APM:Plane 3.4 since I bought it in December. It does not say which version it is on the device.
One thing that I did not see in the instructions is if there is a driver I need to install. Is this my problem or is it somthing else?
