Torrent 110 F3 driver needed!!!!??? Help!!

Hey everyone.

Just got a Blade Torrent 110 and am having difficulty connecting to Betaflight. This is my first quad using Betaflight. I have it installed on PC. When I try to connect, just get an error of "Failed to connect to serial port."

Can anyone point me in the direction of the driver or whatever is needed to communicate with my Torrent? I can use PC or Mac.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!! Thanks all!!

On the front page of the configurator, there is links to all the drivers you need. Likely just the VCP to connect to configurator and the Zadig to flash.

Joshua Bardwell have videos on installing drivers.

Voodoo, what is the VCP and the Zadig? I am a newbie to Betaflight. I connected the USB and the lights come on and beeps, but still shows a connection error. I will check out Joshua's videos this evening. I am not sure what driver I am needing for the Torrent F3. The manual just says F3 board.

There are three links on the front page of the configurator. The VCP and Zadig drivers are probably what you need. VCP driver so you can access the board settings. And Zadig driver to flash FC.

Watch video, things will make more scent.

This is the video mentioned by voodoo. It allowed me to connect my Torrent to BF for the first time.

THIS ^^^

Just make sure the quad is plugged into the PC before running the fixer.

I have tried just about every solution offered & I am still not able to get my Torrent 110 to connect to BF. With the Zadig option in particular I keep running into the same issue, the FC reads as "Unknown USB Device (Device Descriptor Failed)" & I am unable to continue with the suggested steps to update the driver.

Any advice would be appreciated, this is my first "real" quad & I have no idea what I am doing.

Can you post a screenshot of your device manager when you have the FC plugged into USB.

Certainly, here you go.

I kill batteries!
The torrent stock fc requires a powered usb or a battery connected to the fc while a non powered usb is connected.

I found that on another thread & tried it already, but I get the same issue with or without a powered FC. Thank you though, I appreciate you trying to help.

@john. Right click Windows start bottom left. Left click device manager.

You will probably see a yellow triangle next to a device.

Download cp210x drivers and unzipped it. Make a note where you unzipped it.

Go back to device manager. Right click on unknown device and click update driver. Browse my computer for driver. Let me pick from a list. Have disk. Look in the folder for the inf file named slabvcp and open. Then click OK and you see a driver called "silicone labs cp210x USB to UART bridge" then click next. Windows should start installing. Once complete, under device manager, you should see your device under the Ports(com&lpt) with a COM port assigned to it.

Now under betaflight configurator, you have to select that same COM port.
