What waf board type do I use with my V3 Pixhawk1 ? 2MB versus 1MB?


(Me) #1

I just purchased a Pixhawk 1 FC. It says 2.4.8 on it, but what does that mean ?

I’m able to install arduplane 3.9.3 on it easily using qGroundControl. However, I cannot get my own build of the same arduplane to connect with qGroundControl. One thing I notice is that qGroundControl installs a 2MB firmware file. The firmware file generated by my build process is ~ 1MB.

From qGroundControl:

ver hw
HW arch: PX4FMU_V2

ver mcu
MCU: STM32F42x, rev. 3

When I do a firmware install in qGroundControl, it says:

Found device: PX4 FMU V2
Connected to bootloader:
Version 4
Board ID: 9
Flash size: 2080768

Which board type am I supposed to use ?

Here is the build process I use:

make clean
waf clean
waf configure --board board_type_from_list_above
waf plane --upload

Thanks.

px4-v2 surprisingly :smiley:

If you are a hardcore, open it, check the processor revision number, and if it not A, Y, or 1 then you can upgrade the bootloader and use Px4-V3. (https://docs.px4.io/en/advanced_config/bootloader_update.html)
