QGroundControl 4.0 available

Here is a very high level and non-exhaustive list of new features added to QGroundControl in version 4.0. Not to mention the large number of bug fixes in this release and I’m sure we lost track on listing some new features which were added along the way!

Something odd trying to Flash a Developer build on a Kakute F7. After selecting the Developer Build the only board type that shows is the skyviper.

Enter an issue in GitHub on this and we can continue discussion there. New QGC uses the ArduPilot build manifest file for this now which it downloads from ArduPilot site. Could be QGC bug or could be incorrect data in manifest file.

Hi Don if I have an ADS-B cube carrier does that mean I get planes on my flight screen,many thank’s

If that means that you have an ADSB receiver on the vehicle and it sends ADSB_VEHICLE mavlink telemetry to the gcs then yes. That said I’m getting some reports of ADSB not working in 4.0 which I haven’t look at yet.
