    What should I do, I have tried everything.

    - Checked trim buttons and they are all at the center
    - Calibrated devo 7
    - Tried to reset drone from the back bottom button (hold in and put battery on and let the button off, then battery off and tried to open drone and devo 7 same time) nothing..
    - tried new batteries still nothing

    Drone clearly takes some commands because when I turn from transmitter to left or right the yellow leds starts, but nothing else happens.

    Please help me, I'm out of ideas what should I do next.

    My biggest mistake was to use cleanflight and first I tried to put wrong firmware but it failed at 50% off loading. Then I clicked reset and did F210 3D firmware and it went full 100%.

    And yes I'm an idiot.

    Now I somehow got the beeping sound away but now there is solid red light on left side and can't connect to cleanflight anymore, i plug in usb wire and try to connect but nothing happens and I keep getting this No configuration received within 10 seconds, communication failed...

    This is getting so frusrated, when getting something to work, two other things will f...up

    I got windows 10, do I need a certain type of patch to my usb ports because I already tried some and nothing happens.

    There is no FW update for the F210 3D

    You have loaded the 2D firmware on the 3D.

    You most likely have also used the wrong version of cleanflight.

    Make sure that you have the model powered on and bound to the transmitter before you connect to the PC.

    Running without power will also provide an unreliable USB connection.

    Check our resources section for the correct version of Cleanflight.

    And the Original 3D firmware and settings

    Try this first.

    Wakera F210 | Walkera Drone Forums

    You may have also bricked the FC when the update failed.

    Read up in this forum on how to do a factory reset of the FC boot loader. Then do the FW install again and the settings load from the correct cleanflight version.

    Why this boot pins in walkera F210 3D is hidden so well? took me while to open this up and finally find the chip with boot I think but there is no holes where to put paper clip or something like that so any idea how i connect those easily? here a picture too [​IMG]

    got to say, noob like me it was pain in the a.. but finally got it working. Thanks for good tips!

    This is what I did:

    - Tons of research from internet forums
    - Had to take apart half of the drone
    - Download the RIGHT cleanflight version, very important! NOT the chinese version
    - Make sure u have newest drivers for USB ports
    - Download FLASHER-STM32 FLASHER-STM32 - STMicroelectronics
    - before run the program make sure u connect boots with somehow, I used screwdriver and then connect usb wire
    - After this I used to run FW with cleanflight also and then connect and restore and click the config file.
    - Put all the parts back and battery in turned on drone and transmitter and it worked!

    I really recommend to modify this boot to solder some wires on it and put some kind of switch on it, so no need to take apart whole drone to get to it.
