I Want I Was Flying…

Thread OP

Flashing the brand new firmware onto the quad.

Initially, you might want to get a method for the board to be learn by the pc. That is by downloading and putting in this driver…

http://www.silabs.com/Support%20Docu…K3_Vista_7.exe

The board will likely be linked by way of a mini USB cable, of which, most individuals have one million mendacity round the home.

Subsequent, obtain and set up Hercules. This lets you re-flash the board. It’s the program you’ll use to provoke the method, for lack of a greater time period. Scroll all the way down to the center of the web page the place it says obtain…

http://www.hw-group.com/products/hercules/index_en.html

Subsequent, obtain and set up this flash loader…

http://code.google.com/p/afrodevices…o.zip&can=2&q=

Subsequent, you might want to obtain the most recent baseflight firmware right here…

http://code.google.com/p/afrodevices/downloads/list

Right here is the method to flash the board with the most recent firmware. TC has a step-by-step listing on his thread, however I’ll clarify in somewhat extra element…

1) Plug in your board by way of USB to the pc. This could run by means of a quick sequence of flashes of the LEDs, after which the blue LED (energy) LED ought to keep lit.
2) Discover out which COM port your board is connecting with. For me, it was COM3. It seems to be like TC’s was COM11. This may differ, and will be discovered by wanting below Management Panel/Administrative Instruments/Pc Administration/Gadget Supervisor. In there, it ought to listing your board both below Ports or USB gadgets. This could inform you what COM port it’s utilizing.
3) In Hercules, click on on the “Serial” tab.
4) Beneath “Name”, choose the COM or USB port that your board is utilizing.
5) Set Baud (Velocity) to “115200”, Knowledge Dimension to “8 bit”, Parity to “none”, Handshake to “OFF”, Mode to “Free”. Be aware, TC says to set it to 1 stopbit. I couldn’t discover this setting, and thus didn’t set it. You probably have it, set it to 1.
6) Click on on “Open”. This could open a session along with your COM port, and may say so within the textual content field.
7) On the underside of the display is an enter field, the place it says “Send”. Sort within the letter “R”, with out the citation marks. Be certain it’s uppercase. Don’t hit enter, fairly click on ship. This could gentle up all 3 LEDs and preserve them lit up. In the event that they gentle up, then you’re good, if not, see TC’s thread on what to do if the usual course of doesn’t work. Mine labored simply nice.
8) Shut Hercules.
9) Now open the STM32 Flash Loader I had you obtain earlier. In contrast to Hercules, it ought to present up in your packages listing, should you put in it earlier.
10) Set “Port Name” to the COM port your board has been utilizing, in any other case don’t change the rest.
11) Then click on “Next”. The board ought to be acknowledged by the Flash Loader. If it isn’t, ensure your board nonetheless has all 3 LEDs on. If not, return to step 1. If that’s the case, however the Flash Loader received’t discover it, restart the Flash Loader. This occurred to me, and restarting the Flash Loader mounted the issue.
12) Proceed clicking “Next” till you get to the web page that has the choice of Erase, Obtain, or Add.
13) Click on on Obtain.
14) Additionally click on “Jump to User Program” and “Global Erase”
15) Use the browse characteristic below the obtain part to search out the most recent firmware you downloaded earlier. This ought to be one thing alongside the strains of “baseflight…”
16) Click on Subsequent
17) When the board has been reflashed, the board will undergo the traditional begin up sequence of flashes. It shouldn’t take lengthy, and you could miss it. Mine labored on the primary strive. TC says if it doesn’t, to “unplug usb, and replug”
18) Shut the Flash Loader program and unplug your board.

Your board ought to now have the most recent firmware. You shouldn’t should replace this firmware to alter settings. That will likely be executed by way of the GUI or by way of inputting code to the controller, however that will likely be defined within the subsequent few steps.

We’re nearly there! Okay, perhaps half method. In case you made it this far, then you ought to be nice the remainder of the best way.


Utilizing the GUI

I selected to make use of the Multiwii GUI (GUI stands for Graphical Consumer Interface for these of you who’re actually laptop illiterate. Hopefully by now you already know what GUI is). Apparently you should use the FreeFlight software program, however for ease of use, I used the Multiwii software program.

If you wish to, please learn up on tips on how to use the Multiwii GUI. I’ll publish my experiences right here, however there’s a ton to be discovered concerning the Multiwii GUI on-line. Simply seek for it. Within the meantime, that is what I did.

You will have to obtain the most recent Multiwii GUI from the hyperlink beneath. On the time I did this it was Multiwii 2.0. There was one other obtain simply above it, however the one you need is 2.0.

http://code.google.com/p/multiwii/downloads/list

I’m utilizing Home windows XP 32bit, so the app I used was below Multiwii 2.0/MultiwiiConf 2.0/utility.windows32. This may differ relying on the working system you utilize. It ought to be pretty straight ahead. Double click on on the .exe file and you’ll load the Multiwii GUI.

At this level you will have to make sure your quadcopter has the board put in and plugged in appropriately to each the ESCs and the Rx. Additionally, be sure you preserve the props off at this level, because the motors almost definitely will spin in some unspecified time in the future within the course of, with out you wanting them to.

Go forward and plug the board in to the pc by way of the USB cable once more.

It is best to see on the left facet of the GUI an possibility to pick which Port you’re utilizing. This ought to be the identical as you will have been utilizing all alongside. Choose it and it ought to flip from Crimson to Inexperienced inside a number of seconds.

Ensure you have a clean airplane mannequin chosen on the transmitter, with no trims or something. We are going to alter issues in a second.

Flip in your transmitter, after which your quadcopter. Discover that the quadcopter can truly be turned on on the identical time that the board is being powered by the USB port. That is simply nice and the distinction in voltages doesn’t matter. I don’t know why, however it doesn’t. So don’t fear.

Subsequent, click on on the “START” button that’s nearly in the midst of the display. Subsequent, click on “STOP”. Unsure why, however everytime I wish to use the GUI, I’ve to do that to get it to start out speaking. Subsequent, click on on the “READ” button, simply above the Begin/Cease buttons. This will likely take a number of seconds, however it ought to replace the entire PID stuff with inexperienced containers and numeric values, as an alternative of 0. I’d not suggest altering these values till you perceive the board higher. FYI, I’ve used the inventory PID settings to date, and haven’t had any want to the touch them.

The way in which that the GUI works is that it acutally will learn what the board is considering, and show it on the display. That is why you will have the quad and your Tx powered up. You’ll truly be “flying” the quad, ensuring all the things is appropriate. Therefore why you shouldn’t have propellers on at this level.

Go forward and set the quad down on a flat floor. By flat, I imply flat. The flatter the higher your outcome will likely be for autolevel mode. If you must, get out a degree and discover a flat floor. I occurred to put in my very own flooring in our home, so I do know they’re degree.

Subsequent, click on on the “CALIB_ACC” button. This may clearly calibrate the accelerometers, therefore why the quad ought to be FLAT.

Click on on the “CALIB_MAG” button. This may calibrate the magnetometers. You are able to do this with a stick mixture (unsure what it’s), or whereas linked to the GUI. With a view to calibrate the magazine appropriately, you must spin the copter round all 3 axis, 360 levels, slowly for the 30 second interval that the LED is blinking. I have never bothered with this, as I do not personally have a necessity for Magazine maintain but.

From right here on out, the quad will be sitting on any floor you need. It solely must be completely degree for calibrating the accelerometers.

Lets go forward and arrange the Arming of the board. I wished the board to arm by way of a change, and never a stick motion/mixture. Thus, in order for you the stick motion, you shouldn’t have to do that. If you would like a change, then do what I did. I set my change to be Aux3, which on my x9303 transmitter is channel 7. It occurs to be the three place change above my proper stick. This exhibits up as Aux2 on my radio, however Aux3 on the GUI. To ensure that any of the Aux channels for use, you have to have a sign cable going to your radio for that specific channel. They’ll instantly comply with the rudder enter, so they are going to be s5, s6, s6, and many others.

With somewhat tinkering, you’ll get the dangle of the GUI, however to get the board to arm on a sure change place, you must click on on the field that pertains to that change place. For instance, I set it up so the board will not be armed when the change is all the best way up. That is how I prefer to activate all of my fashions (with all switches up and away from me). I chosen the “MID” and “LOW” containers, making it in order that the board arms when the change is within the low or mid place. Kinda is sensible, proper.

To ensure that these, or any modifications within the GUI to happen, you might want to click on the “WRITE” button to get them to put in writing to the board, and turn into energetic. As soon as doing so, it is best to see that if you transfer that change, the inexperienced LED will come on, and the board ought to arm. One other solution to confirm it arms, is to click on on “START” and flip the change. It ought to activate the inexperienced LED and it also needs to flip the field labeled “Arm” inexperienced.

Right here is the place it will get bizarre. If you’re utilizing a Spektrum radio like me (can’t communicate for others), then you’ll have to alter your journey limits on the throttle with a view to get the board to arm. It received’t arm just by telling it to. This alone took about 2 horus for me to determine. In case you look on the highest proper of the display, it is best to see a throttle vary. Make sure that you will have clicked “START”, and transfer your throttle stick. It is best to see this worth go up and down with the motion of the stick. The way in which I received mine to work was by setting my Tx to full throttle. The board is anticipating a worth of 2000 for full throttle. Mine learn lower than that, although I’m not precisely certain what. Anyway, I went into “Travel Adjust” in my radio, and elevated the max worth till I noticed it mentioned 2000 on the display. This associated to about 126% throw on the throttle max setting. Then I lowered the throttle to minimal throttle. Right here, the board is supposedly on the lookout for 1000. I received mine to arm at 105% on the minimal throttle setting. This associated to a worth of I feel 1097, however it nonetheless appeared to work. Anyway, alter this worth till you may get the board to arm by way of the flip of the change.

Now in case your quad acts the best way mine did, when the board arms, all 4 motors will instantly spool up. (Therefore the no propellers rule). This may occur each time your board arms, and it is going to be unattainable to cease them, until you disable that. It is best to nonetheless have throttle curve. I’ll clarify tips on how to cease the motors in a sec, however for now, somewhat concerning the GUI.

You’ll be able to cee how all of the methods are working by way of the GUI earlier than check flying. That is executed by ensuring you will have clicked “START” and the, for lack of a greater time period, squiggly strains within the decrease white window are transferring. The quad ought to sense motion, and present this motion on the display. It should additionally present what options you will have enabled, reminiscent of autolevel, which we’ll arrange shortly.

We are going to mess with all of that at a later time, however for now, lets get these motors to cease.

For now, you may shut the COM with the board within the GUI, by clicking “STOP” after which “CLOSE COM” discovered on the top-left facet of the display. At this level you may unplug the board from the pc and shut the GUI.

Enabling MOTOR_STOP

Apparently you’re supposed to have the ability to do that by means of Hercules, however I couldn’t get it to work. I did get it to work by way of Putty, nonetheless. Putty and Hercules do principally the identical factor. Putty will be discovered right here…

http://the.earth.li/~sgtatham/putty/…/x86/putty.exe

Sooner or later, you’ll use both Putty or Hercules for lots of your customization and adjusting, however for now we’re solely doing one factor, and that’s getting the motors to cease with minimal throttle enter, whereas the board is armed. That is executed by enabling the characteristic, MOTOR_STOP.

You do that by opening a Putty session a lot the identical method you probably did Hercules. You’ll use the identical settings you probably did earlier than. Click on on “Session” on the left facet of the window, after which “Serial” on the appropriate facet. Beneath “Serial Line” enter the COM port you will have been utilizing. As soon as once more, mine was COM3. Set pace to 115200 as you probably did earlier than, and click on “Open”.

This could open a session with the board itself.

Sort the character “#”, with out the citation marks. It ought to say that it entered CLI mode.

At this level, kind the next: “feature MOTOR_STOP” clearly with out the citation marks, and press the enter key. It ought to reply by saying “Enabled MOTOR_STOP”. Now kind “exit” with out citation marks, and it ought to save and exit. Now you can shut the session.

At this level, you’re prepared to check fly the quad, until you wish to program autolevel and altitude (baro) maintain first. If you wish to fly now, skip forward to “Test Flying”. If not, stick round for the following few, hopefully brief steps.

Setting Up AutoLevel and Baro (Altitude) Maintain

AutoLevel (AL) and Baro Maintain (BH) are very straightforward to arrange. They’re arrange a lot in the identical method that you simply assigned the Arming operate to a change. Mainly, plug the board into the pc, open the GUI, open the COM session throughout the GUI, click on on “START”, then click on “READ”. That is the method you’ll use to replace the GUI with the present settings of the board. At the very least, it’s what I’ve needed to do.

At this level you may arrange AL and BH by clicking on the containers related to the change you intend to apply it to. AL is managed by the “LEVEL” setting, and BH is clearly “BARO”. I at present have mine set as much as the place the three place change above my left stick on the transmitter, also called channel 6, controls every operate individually. With the change up, no features are enabled. With the change within the center place, BH is enabled. With the change within the low place, AL is enabled. My change is ready by way of “Aux2” within the GUI, which is definitely “Aux1” on my transmitter, however both method it was channel 6, or the s6 enter on the board. You need to have a jumper cable going from the sign out on the Rx to s6 on the board with a view to use channel 6. That is how all of the Aux channels work within the GUI. They should clearly be linked with a view to work. Anyway, again on monitor, I’ve the “MID” field set below BARO, and the “LOW” field checked below LEVEL, and that provides me the outcomes above. Be happy to regulate this as vital.

I additionally arrange my change on the very prime proper of my transmitter to be each AL and BH. That is in order that if I get right into a loopy scenario, or lose video or one thing whereas flying FPV, I can flip the change and the quad will at the least not crash instantly. Anyway, this was executed by way of “Aux1” on the GUI, which is the “Gear” channel on my Tx, however both method, channel 5, or s5 on the board. As soon as once more, a jumper is required.

Hopefully by now this course of is sensible. That is additionally how you’ll arrange the entire different features, like Heading Maintain, GPS maintain, and RTH. For now I don’t have the power nor want to arrange any of the opposite features. Give me every week or two and I’m certain that may change.
