As both calibration and firmware update software use virtual COM port to connect to your Gimbal, you may need to download a device driver. When you connect your gimbal to a PC via USB cable and turn it on, please check on the device manager of your Windows to see if there is CP210x USB to UART Bridge existing. If not, you need to download the driver from  http://www.silabs.com/products/development-tools/software/usb-to-uart-bridge-vcp-drivers. Please select “Download VCP (5.3 MB) (Default)” on the page. If you are using Windows 10, avoid downloading the “Windows 10 Universal (v10.1.1)” driver. This may cause issues when connecting the S1 to the computer.
