Installing Arduino IDE

This tutorial will walk you through downloading, installing, and testing the Arduino software (also known as the Arduino IDE - short for Integrated Development Environment). Before you jump to the page for your operating system, make sure you’ve got all the right equipment. What you will need:
  • A computer (Windows, Mac, or Linux)
  • An ESPcopter
  • A USB - micro USB

Launch and Blink!

After following the appropriate steps for your software install, we are now ready to test your first program with your Arduino board!

  • Launch the Arduino application
  • If you disconnected your board, plug it back in
Lesson 1. Blink
  • Select the type of ESP8266 you’re using: Tools > Board > your board type
  • Select the serial/COM port that your Arduino is attached to: Tools > Port > COMxx

  • If you’re not sure which serial device is your Arduino, take a look at the available ports, then unplug your Arduino and look again. The one that disappeared is your Arduino.
  • With your Arduino board connected, and the Blink sketch open, press the ‘Upload’ button

  • After a second, you should see some LEDs flashing on your Arduino, followed by the message ‘Done Uploading’ in the status bar of the Blink sketch.
  • If everything worked, the onboard LED on your Arduino should now be blinking! You just programmed your first ESPcopter!
