I fixed up my last issue doing the fixes you gave, a big THANKYOU.

I am able to load firmware on my TWOG and have done many different uploads 
successfully including the Flash lights testing firmware. I initially used the 
Funjeteth1 but changed to the Microjet5 because it has less extras in the code 
to confuse me. I changed the GPS setup so I can use the LEA-5H and the rest 
looks correct to my untrained eye.

I have tested the voltage at the GPS and other sensors to make sure they are 
all getting power.

When I try to connect to the TWOG via the USB to serial cable (FTDI utility 
board), I get a completely blank GCS and there are no errors. It seems there is 
no data connection between the TWOG and computer, but this is just a stab in 
the dark by me. I am pretty sure the baud rates are correct because I changed 
them and the Autopilot crashed (no lights or solid red light). I followed the 
compiling guide on the Paparazzi wiki exactly from start to finish two times, 
but I still got no output from my TWOG. When I select tools messages the window 
is blank on both computers.

One thing I am unsure about, if I plug the modem into the FTDI board, a red 
light comes on at the back of it, but doesn't come on if I plug directly into 
the TWOG board (no modem on FTDI utility).

I never get the green GPS fix light coming on, I am unsure how to test the 

I have tried this on two different computers with two different Paparazzi 
versions, just in case it was an update issue, nothing changed.

I bought my hardware from as a pack.

Would anyone have an idea of where I am going wrong. I seem to be so close to 
getting this working, but there is no GPS fix and the GCS and TWOG wont talk.

Kindest regards,
