Which firmware do you use? Can you flash the beta 7 with QGC?

try 1 more

Connect to FC by putty or other terminal and power up board.
FC put some messages and we can read when FC stoped.

Thanks agian for the replys.

This is what putty terminal reads when powering on.
"þ¾Cþ¾CÕhþ¾C*Cþ¾C

I have tried
aqv7.0.r442.b1848-hwv6.0-dimu1.1.hex
aqv7.0.r441.b1847-hwv6.0-dimu1.1.hex
and aqv7.0.r441.b1847-hwv6.0.hex

Then non-dimu one works fine.

What now?
Thanks again for the help!

looks like DIMU isn't discovered
Make sure about soldering connectors and check powering of DIMU

Well I invested in a magnifying glass and it turns out you were right. There was one pad just a few microns shy of a connection. 5 mins on the soldering iron and now all the lights are flashing as they should. Thanks so much for your help! Long live autoquad! (and hopefully the next board revision will be presoldered :P ) osd would be nice too.
