Failed to open serial port


#1

Hi all

Can anyone please help out, I’m trying to configure SP Racing F3 FC using Clean Flight configurator but it (have tried 2 different ones) just says (top left) failed to open serial port.

Many thanks in advance for any help

Try a different USB cable… Some only do power

Also on the front page in the bottom left corner there are some links to drivers

Thanks for this Alex, I’ll give it a try shortly and let you know how I get on. Have spent the last 2 Saturday afternoons and more reading tutorials and trying to get the configurator to work. I’m using a USB cable I managed to find that was successful in upgrading firmware for TS 100 soldering iron.

Kind regards

Tom

Hi Alex

Sorry but the link you sent me failed to find 2 x flight controllers I hooked up to my laptop via USB cable. I cannot do it manually via the description you sent me also as I’m not that computer savvy.

I would be grateful for any further assistance.

Kind regards

Tom

At eyou running on windows? As you did try the impulse RC driver fixer as administrator? I would also suggest trying a few different usb cables and ports on your computer is if both FC are not detected would make me think it’s a driver issue rather than a fault with both FC.
