I so hate computers

Naza Lite m with GPS controlled by a Futaba T7C radio. I can operate the drone with the radio but I can't link the drone to the Comp. to check settings and assign switches. I have windows 10 which I had to download kicking and screaming the whole time doing because windows no longer gave me a choice. So I download the Naza Lite program all looks good but it will not link up to the control panel. When I plug the drone into the comp the LED goes out which tells me something is going on with the craft. Used to bit from RC Groups about allowing unsigned drivers and that was doable but still no hooking up to the drone with the comp. So besides being old and hard to teach can someone give me a heads up on how to make this thing work?

Re: I so hate computers

jim, do a google search for dji drivers on windows 10. see here also http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showp...3&postcount=34 . had the same issue when my pc auto updated without my permission. basically needed to bootup in a mode that would accept djis unsigned drivers. worked great for me but took awhile to figure it out . since I didn,t want win 10 for this very incompatibility reason, I was more than pissed it installed itself.. good luck... rob m

Re: I so hate computers

Thanks Rob I will check out that link maybe it has something I can use. If I was in control of making computers there would be no such thing as upgrades and anything needed to make it compatible would not change how you use it. I would just make those add on's and have it still workable with the same method of operation.

Re: I so hate computers

Disable the auto update in the control panel and it won't update. Cheers Floyd

Re: I so hate computers

Stopping updates still won't prevent those clowns from declaring your system out of date and requiring you to upgrade because your system is not compatible. Hard not to have a love/hate relationship with those things.

I suppose it's too late now for you but you should not have been forced to "Upgrade"

My wife's computer downloaded it but gave 30 days to roll it back. I did so that same day.

Re: I so hate computers

Software must be installed first so it can detect the new hardware, once you've done this Windows will pick up the device.
I hated when they stopped making flybared heli's. I believe there are quite a few of us old timers who have just quiet because of computer radio's and flybarless programming. I know I almost did. Sorry I turned 55 yesterday, cheers .

Re: I so hate computers

I can relate Jimmy but there still are fly bar parts you can buy. Maybe this winter I'll make a fly barred four blade head for my 500 I built one for my 600 and it flew like it was on rails. I would say that four blade fly barred was more stable than fly bar less and I don't do 3D never will, there is no attraction to that action for me.

Re: I so hate computers

David I found that out too late because by then windows 10 messed up my other functions on my comp such as desktop icons. I have no idea how to put icons on windows 10. Does Mac use the same operating method on all their models? Windows changes how you work the thing with every new downgrade they come up with.
