I m building a new quad with kakute F7 aio

I want help for how to connect the wires to uart ports of kakute

Here are the the hardware I am going to use

It’s detailed here:

You may have to change the Motor output channels in Ardcucopter but this is simple. Run the Motor test function and adjust as required.

What’s the servo for?

The connections for tx and rx are vice versa?

The servo is for fishing
Bait release

Here is a test with my coaxial x8

Not sure what you mean by vice versa Tx/Rx.

Got it with the servo. Very cool.

Thank you
That was what I need!!!

Post another video when you get it dropping bait Dimitris!

I will when the new quad with chibios is ready!!!

Thank you dave

Test it properly first, if you use dshot - do plenty of tests to make sure dron is not doing twitches as if motor loses command stream. I had it on several models and had to make custom hwdef with nodma added to all uarts. But, it may have been chip or my build only glitch. Just test it. If it happens - it is impossible to miss, during autotune or alt hold loiter it will act as if it temporarily lost a motor.

It could go far more but we didn’t have more rope for the bait
