I have number of these in quads CC3D with out barometer will they work ?
That’s an F1 board, not F4, so no. Not supported, and unlikely to ever be (as a full ArduPilot flight controller).
All instructions and files are given for the “Revo Nano”.
Will all this work with the “Revo”? I’m about to go for it.
EDIT: YES (at least the FW installation)
I tried different approaches, but finally (in this order):
- Get into DFU mode by bridging the two pads
- Connect the Revo through USB
- Update drivers through Zadig
- Go to betaflight environment (or whatever the name) and select “Load Firmware [Local]”
- Select the .hex file downloaded from http://firmware.ardupilot.org/Plane/beta/revo-mini/ (if the _bl is used next update can be done directly from Mission Planner (not tested yet))
- Disconnect and remove the bridge
- Reboot and done
I have a Revo and a FrSky X8R (which wors fine with an APM). What pin am I supposed to use to input my RC signals using SBUS? Documentation says “RC input PPM/sBus on RC input port’s signal pin 1” which doesn’t work (that is the ground pin according to LibrePilot documentation). LibrePilot docs say such PPM signal should arrive through pin 5 (4 for the RevoNano), which doesn’t work either.
I have tried various pins to no avail. Any hint?
(I’m using this thread because my questions fit the tittle although the original question was in a different direction. Point me to a better location if needed)
I just upgraded to the new 3.9 stable and still “No RC receiver”. I found this pointing me to pin 5 of the “RC INPUT” port of the Revo, but I’m still not getting any RC signal. I tried two receivers that work fine with a Pixhawk but I can’t get the Revo to see any of them.
What firmware is compatible/supported in or for a CC3D flight controller?
I have not ordered one yet, but I have only short listed one for my very first entry into multi-copter vehicles.
What entry level board (or otherwise) is suitable for use with Ardupilot?
I am a complete beginner, so apologies up front!
Revo and Revo mini but I don’t see any reason to use them. Supported boards:
What are you planning on building?
I am planning on building the most simple quadcopter first. The motivation is for it to provide a learning exercise, a “student project” if you will.
However, ultimately, I have been asked to participate in the construction and development of a VTOL fixed wing aircraft for specific agricultural type application.
I have extensive experience in fixed wing models and composite construction and design.
But…I have to start where I am, that is with zero multi-copter experience.
Thanks for the reply and the question.
