Ok, my bad, I set up the SiK radios and they actually worked with minimal fussing, until I made the mistake of pushing the “Upload Firmware on Local” button in Mission Planner, which I think flashed the ground radio but not the air radio. Now the radios won’t communicate.
I assume I need to connect the air radio to MP to update it’s FW, but the air unit has no USB connector. How does one do this? P.S. I called mRobotics for help but no reply yet.
Power up the craft with the battery. In Mission Planner select the Com port the ground radio is on and 57.6 baud but DO NOT CONNECT. Press the Load Settings button from the Sik Radio Screen and hopefully both sides will populate. Post a screen shot of that so we can see what you have flashed.
In the past I have used an FTDI adapter to update those radios w/o a USB port. Do you happen to recall what firmware version was on there before you updated to V2.2? Kind of surprised Mro did not have V2.2 on it already as that version came out a year ago.
I just did EXACTLY what you did with a set of mRo radios. I updated the ground radio to v2.2 using Mission Planner’s local update feature, and it immediately reconnected to the air unit that was still running v2.0.
This post also discusses mixing firmware versions without significant issue.
I will update the air radio later, anyway. I’ll let you know how that goes.
Just tried the radios again, making sure everything was connected correctly. In MP, still only loads data on the Local side. Green LED on the ground radio is flashing slowly, green LED on air radio also flashing slowly, but red LED also blinking twice, then repeats. Even tried it on a different PC.
Not sure what else to try, except flash the air radio and hope that works, but not likely based on Yuri’s info. What else might be at issue?
