I currently have a 6 pin out USBasp adapter, can i use this 10pin Atmel socket flashing tool with my current USbasp tool? If so, what is the correct orientation for the connectors? I dont want to accidentally reverse polarity to my Socket tool and burn something. ANY input is appreciated. Thanks

You can buy 10pin to 6pin Adapter boards online to convert between the two. They have the same pins, but the 10pin has an additional 3 GND pins and one NC pin.

I ordered this along with http://hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__27990__USBasp
_AVR_Programming_Device_for_ATMEL_proccessors.html
only to have them arrive and find out that the plugs are different. What programmer am I supposed to use this cable with?

Hi I have started accruing the parts to build my first quad copter. I am going to buy 4 30amp blue controllers and started reading about flashing these controllers (I have no idea how this is achieved). This part was listed as being easiest way to do it. Is this the complete device or do I need adapters or something to attach it to USB on a PC. Thank you

Just read a bit more. It seems that Hk only provide half of the solution so have answered my own question but cant see a way to remove. Please ignore

Alright, this thing is legitimately awesome. A similar setup is gonna run you $160-200 from a renowned international manufacturer. Hint: the group of 3 closely-spaced pins on one corner face *away* from the dot on the ATMega chip. I could otherwise see no alignment features, so I hope this helps. The 10-pin ISP header is rarer nowadays, and I had to make a crossover cable to work with a 6 pin AVR ISPmkII unit. I know it's supposed to work with a USBASP, but I've also no luck getting the damned USBASP to work *at all*.

I've found this tool to be very useful, saves a lot of time that would have to be spent wiring a port on an ESC that you plan to reprogram. You have to keep firm perpendicular pressure to make sure the connections remain connected.
