Pixhawk 2.4.8 Firmware?

I bought one of these MRo Clones from China. The specs that went along with it say it is an updated version with a 2meg ram. My question is, when I load the firmware, MP asks which pixhawk I have Type 1,2, 2.1, 3 or 4. Which one should I use? I know it’s not 2 or 2.1 but their are other choices and the right choice would help tremendously.


From the Mission Planner Install Firmware Screen select “All Options” and then these selections assuming you want Copter. If you want Plane or Rover pick those .apj. It should do the trick.

Hi Dave.

The firmware manifest ask what type of platform I’m using. I’ve tried several that seem to work but the 2.4.8 board is not listed. Any idea which would be most compatible?

Why don’t you just try what’s shown in the image and as instructed? If your Mission Planner screen does not look like this update it from the Help screen by pressing the “check for Beta updates” button at the bottom of the screen.

Good day, for your pixhawk you can use platform FMUv3… in case you see few issue with this version just choose FMUv2

If FMUv3 doesn’t work you might find updating the bootloader sorts it, both my clones (not MRo) were detected as FMUv2 but they had the fixed chip so with an updated bootloader work fine and are now detected as FMUv3.
Qgroundcontrol can update it and has instructions if you google update pixhawk bootloader.

QGC will do it and Mission Planner will also simply by selecting fmuv3 as the Platform.

Oh, I didn’t realise that would also update the bootloader, is that persistent or do you have to select the other platform each time you update rather than letting it select for you? I did try using mission planners update bootloader (in the control f menu), but it failed everytime for me, although it now works after updating it with qgroundcontrol.

It’s persistent once you update it.
