Congratulations to @ukmook (aka Malcolmn Churn) who has just completed the port of ArduPilot to the TauLabs Sparky2 board using ChibiOS!
Those days, I may be missing for ChibiOS implementation. Please help me to clarify my unawareness. What is the difference for the performance as flight controller to compare with native Pixhawks ? Pros and Cons, or just same performance by different board design.
The big advantages of ChibiOS are:
- smaller firmware (allows us to squeeze more features onto the existing boards and also support boards with lower flash size than we could)
- lower CPU load partially because of serial DMA support
- better timing (our main loop completes within the expected time much more often)
- more popular with developers
Thank you for the replay. It looks interesting and nothing to hold back to use. I will give a try:slight_smile:

I am sorry to type here, but saw this thread and lately found some of these Sparky 2.0 and would like to test some of the ardupilot codes, but it seems i am unable to locate info by google. would it be too much to ask for a link that will point me to the right direction?
NP, here are some links:
Thank you for the reply and my apologies for the delay but i had been busy with some builds here.
I checked them all out but seems my sparkys dont go to proper DFU and this has mostly to do with the drivers.
No matter what i do, so it seems a format is comming.
Once again thank you for the reply and all the support you give the community.
