Anyone have problems with getting the computer to connect with the 540 on the heli. Tried (2) different USB cables. Reinstalled the 3.30 firmware on the computer. When I plug the cable into the 540, I cannot get the green box to come on. Sometimes it will connect, but then it won't let me udate the 540. I get a "ERROR message.
Thx Mark

There seems to be a better Skookum crowd over on site-B:

I've been reading about issues people are having with the V3.30 on the Sk-540.
Try to redownload the package from the Skookum site - I got the impression the reissued the 3.30 package to address the connection (or lack of connection) issue on the SK-540

I am still running 3.15 - I didn't see any need to upgrade.

if the cord is ok and computer is ok then the only other time i've seen a 540 or 720 do that was when the usb connection socket inside on the main board had come lose so the connection was intermittent, if that's the case it will have to be sent back to skookum for repair......

I was having a little trouble with my connection last night setting up my new 540.. It seem if I just unplugged it and kept plugging it back in it would eventually "take" - minor nuisance. other than that, absolutley excellent interface.
