Hooking up Controller to computer for programming.

I am wondering if this is the wrong forum... anyways, here goes:

Just how are you supposed to hook up the controller to a computer, for programming? I couldn't find anything that said exactly what port it was. I believe its 'Dashboard', but i just want to be sure... don't want to fry a 3000$ piece of equipment.

sorry if this has already been posted.


[Note to Admin]: And it just happened again! I hit 'submit', and it says 'no thread specified'. I hit the back button on my broswer, and come back to this screen.

Now, if this will happen like it always does, the next try (clicking on Submit) should work...

Edit: Yep, it worked.

Cool RC Hookup To Computer

To hook up your RC to a computer to program, you place a serial cable in the "Program" Port (next to the tether and radio ports). Hook the other end into a COM port on your computer and tell your PBASIC editor to recognize the COM.

Good Luck
