    TBS Powercube

    Hi all,

    I finally bought the TBS Powercube since I wanted to have plug and play after many years of "pain"

    I got it this week but I have a problem with it, I can't connect it to cleanflight.

    Read a lot everywhere and also in this forum but there too much information and I don't know it anymore so hopefully this topic will help me.

    I am able to get the FC in de DFU mode and managed to upload the latest firmware (cleanflight) onto the board succesfully (it says).

    Now when I connect the USB I see the blue light on the FC steady and the red one is blinking (1 time per second).

    If I try to connect it to cleanflight I get the message that the firmware on this device needs upgrading to a newer version.

    ???

    I tried everything what is said in the manual, downloaded every driver and program which is in there but no luck so far.

    I think that a lot of possible solutions you are about to give will have been tried already but maybe there is one solution which I missed? Please help, want to fly badly

    I'm running a clean Windows 10 pro setup.

    Best regards:

    Ok, after a lot of reading and trying I was able to install betaflight 3.0.1 via TBS agent and after that I can connect in Cleanflight...... pfew...... took some hours but ok, it looks ok.... BUT...

    When I go to the tap Power & Battery I read:

    "Firmware upgrade required. Battery/Amperage/Voltage configurations using API<1.22 is not supported"

    When I look in the log I see that multiwii API version received: 1.21

    Is there a way to upgrade the multiwii API without flashing the firmware?? Because when I flash the firmware with the latest colibri race hex, the device will not be recognized anymore untill I flash the firmware with TBS agent again to betaflight 3.0.1 but than the API version is 1.21 again and I need 1.22

    Anybody? Help is really appreciated.....

    Best regards: Daan

    use an older version of cleanflight I had to do this in order to make changes to an older f3 board, I have the newest version of CF and version 1.2.4 or something like that-check youtube painless 360 has a good tutorial on this
