I borrowed a Tarot XYZ fbl unit from Honda411. It initializes, but will not connect to the computer. Now before you ask if it has been updated, think about what I wrote. It won't connect to the computer, so therefore can not update it. I have tried switching the usb ports all over the place and it still won't connect. Has anyone seen this problem?

Is it connected to a receiver? With both the transmitter and receiver turned on and linked, it wouldn't connect for for me without the rx signal

do a "reset" using ur radio..and side button. then start from scratch..when that happens it means the software 'hanged" due to a connection loss during a change..make sure ur computer is reading the USB connector..

I have not seen anything about a reset. It says that it can override if there is an error, but nothing has been read that mentions reset.

I think he's talking about the last entry in the table at the top of page 8 of the manual.

You may need the USB adapter driver...see this article, it has a link to the USB driver. Pay attention to what is says about Tarot and COM ports...

http://fbl.net.nz/info/adapter

-----

And borrowed from another thread here on RR:

Try it this way -
1. Power on Transmitter
2. Power on receiver (unplug motor for safety)
3. Wait for 3X1000 to initialize
4. Plug USB interface into computer
5. Start program
6. Click connect

BTW, there is a very good program to interface the USB available here:
http://fbl.net.nz/

There is a thread on rc groups mini heli forum on this software.

Yes, that's the procedure for the ZYX twin -- the CopterX unit, but I believe the sequence is similar. You need to pay attention when the USB driver loads -- and to which COM port the adapter gets assigned. The PC software needs to know the COM port before it will work.

I have tried all that. I have downloaded the USB drivers, I have tried different ports, I tried plugging the USB in different ports,etc.
