I can't get the flashing to work! As I am a beginner in AVR programming it's probably my fault. I bought the usbasp (http://www.fundf.net/usbasp/
) and built it successfully (?). When using avrdude or eXtreme burner I get the message "error connecting to chip".
I have double checked the pads on the RCTimer 18A ESC, and they are in the same order as on the Turnigy/Hobbywing 25A shown on the first page.
* Am I connecting the MISO/MOSI pins correctly? MISO ATmega8 - MISO Programmer, and MOSI ATmega8 - MOSI Programmer? Or should it be the other way around?
* Do I need to supply separate power to the ESC when programming? I have tried without power, with power from a LIPO, and with power supplied by the USB port. Same result - I cannot connect!
The driver is installed. The green LED is on when connected to the computer. The red LED flashes when running the avrdude commands. When specifying a lower speed the red LED flashes (visibly) for a longer period of time.
I'm grateful for any help you can give me!
