CoDrone Pro remote not connecting



  • Hi,

    I tried uploading code to the CoDrone Pro remote, and I receive an error message with feedback that says "the selected serial port does not exist or your board is not connected".

    I checked the following items with a few run-through to make sure that the steps of connection are correct and I was not missing anything.

    • Switch 1 is Up, Switch 2 & 3 are Down
    • Pressed the "Reset" button under the switches and bluetooth button before upload. I see solid red light under Power, blinking blue light on Led 18, and blinking yellow light above Bluetooth button (sometimes can be blinking red).
    • Selected the correct board (Rokit-SmartInventor-mega32_v2) and the port
    • Used different USB ports and computer systems (Windows & Mac)

    I still run into the same issue. I have copied the detailed error message. Sorry about the long post.

    the selected serial port 
     does not exist or your board is not connected
    
    

    Please let me know if there a fix for this. Thank you!

    @athang ,
    It looks like your SmartInventor board is having a problem and you will need to send it back for a repair. I will have someone email you so that it can be arranged 🙂
    When you get your new board, make sure you also update your CoDrone library. It seems like you have an old version. In Arduino, go to Sketch>Include Library>Manage Libraries...

    Search for CoDrone and make sure to click "Update" to the most recent version.
