The Cube won't connect to Mission Planner

Hi, I’m trying to connect The Cube to the mission planner. The ports are correct but it won’t connect. It says no heartbeat packets received.

I connected my other pixhawk to mission planner and it did work. Am I missing any drivers here?

Hello @johnmeeel

Have you selected the MAVLink Comm port and not the SLCAN ones?


One time ago I had a similar trouble, and solved it by updating its bootloader and firmware. Try to do this at Mission Planner firmware update screen.

I fought with this earlier this year. I found it to be a driver issue. To solve it I downloaded and installed QGC. That came with the drivers I needed and then I was able to connect to the Cube with MP.
