You know the funny part both my AP and Hornet took firmware on the first attempt, actually I have not yet had a problem with either one and using USB (Using Win 7). One thing that is annoying is that the GPS NMEA stream gets detected as a mouse, which of course will make your mouse go nuts... unless you actually need the NMEA stream for GCS purposes you can disable the falsely identified mouse in the device manager (though you will need to unplug the device first to gain control of your mouse :P).

Speaking of GCS, I programmed in 8 waypoints circling the field where I will do more test flights tomorrow, if all goes well with the stabilization, then I will try circling and RTH, and then waypoints :P

I got about an hour and a half (with some conservative throttle management) of battery juice to bring with me to the field, so it will hopefully be a fun morning.
