Updating firmware problem

(Eduardo Dalla Bernardina Fraga) #1

Hi. I have a problem. When I try update my Matek F405 Se firmware the QGC not show the list of able firmwares to install. Like a problem with communication with the server. Anyone has this issue too?

I would like a QGC firmware for choose a V-Tail configuration. When i get the firmware from this link the options to choose a VTail dont appear in QCG.

What version of QGC are you using. The Daily Build has much better support for ChibiOS firmware flashing. If you can’t get a firmware list from the daily build can you turn on FirmwareUpgradeLog logging as described here: https://docs.qgroundcontrol.com/en/SettingsView/console_logging.html. And then attach the console output.

In order to pick V-tail you go to Setup/Frame, pick you frame and then in teh dropdown pick v-tail.

Yes I understand that is what is going wrong but I need you to follow the instructions I gave above to get me the information to be able to figure out why.

You need:

  • Have FirmwareUpgradeLog turned on
  • Try a firmware flash
  • And then report the results from console

It will take me a little bit to look at this. As I mentioned above to Daily Build has much better ChibiOS support so you may be running into something that has already been fixed there.

I maked the download a Daily Build and now the firmware update is working, but when i updated my firmware and go to configuration i not see the plane frame configuration. Im using a lastest Plane firmware with Matek 405 Wings

As far as I currently know there is no Frame configuration needed for ArduPlane. That is only for ArduCopter. Unless something changed recently which I don’t know about.

I was tinking about a v-tail configuration or flywings configuration…

You’d have to ask ArduPlane folks about how to set that up. Docs: http://ardupilot.org/plane/docs/guide-vtail-plane.html
