PixHawk 2.4.8 Firmware Update Failure


I got the drone kit but I am stuck in the process of updating firmware on the pixhawk after successful assembly.

Mission Planner keeps giving “lost connection to the board” error and QGroundControl gives “Erase failed: Send Command: Get Command Response: Timeout waiting for bytes to be available.” Any leads will be much appreciated. If more information if required, please let me know and I will provide.


I tried a Google search and there were multiple suggestions, such as the link below. What have you tried?
