!!! Attention !!!
You have to make sure then that the middle connector (power / red) is not connected (pull it out of the connector), otherwise you might burn down your PC's USB hub by powering the complete Heli electronics including servos from it.


The circuit with the diode was wrong, as the diode was inserted in the wrong direction.You also missed the pull up on the single line and you have to use a schotky diode that has not more than 0.2v to 0.3v @ a couple of mA. (e.g. BAT64-02W...)
Thanks for the advice Walter.
What's the value of the resistor should i use? Possible to draft/sketch the circuit for me?
That would save me a lot using my current USB to UART converter.
