Default UART order

  • SERIAL0 = console = USB
  • SERIAL1 = Telemetry1 = USART1
  • SERIAL2 = empty, USART2 used for RCInput
  • SERIAL3 = GPS1 = USART3
  • SERIAL4 = GPS2 = UART4
  • SERIAL5 = USER = UART5
  • SERIAL6 = USER = USART6

Serial protocols can be adjusted to personal preferences.

Dshot capability

All motor/servo outputs are Dshot and PWM capable. However, mixing Dshot and normal PWM operation for outputs is restricted into groups, ie. enabling Dshot for an output in a group requires that ALL outputs in that group be configured and used as Dshot, rather than PWM outputs. The output groups that must be the same (PWM rate or Dshot, when configured as a normal servo/motor output) are: 1/2, 3/4, 5/6, or 7/8/9.

Where to Buy

Connecting a GPS/Compass module

This board does not include a GPS or compass so an external GPS/compass should be connected as shown below in order for autonomous modes to function.

A battery must be plugged in for power to be provided to the 5V pins supplying the GPS/compass modules.
