So I tried to update both of my Pixhawks’ firmware to ArduPlane V3.0.1 (BTW thanks for the update, excited to use the new features!) today via Mission Planner 1.2.99. After Mission Planner downloaded the firmware, I unplugged and re-plugged the pixhawk as instructed. In the status bar I see “identify, updating, erase, then program…” I get to anywhere from 10-80% complete, then I get the dreaded “Error Uploading Firmware” and an “ERROR: the operation has timed” out message near the status bar. Now I can no longer connect via mavlink and I no longer get a start up tone from pixhawk (or any tone for that matter) and no main LED indications.
I’ve tried: to upload copter and rover and older versions of arduplane, using APM instead of Mission, second Pixhawk. All with the same results, and as of now I have a couple of fancy paper weights.
Has anyone ran into the same problem?
