Frame Class and Type Configuration¶
If using the mission planner select Initial Setup, Mandatory Hardware | Frame Type. If you are using another Ground Station it should be possible to set the FRAME_CLASS and FRAME_TYPE parameters directly through a parameter update screen.
If using Copter-3.5 (or higher) firmware a “Frame Class” section should be visible which allows selecting the “Class” of vehicle (Quad, Hexa, Octa, etc).
For Traditional Helicopters, “Heli” should already be selected and it should not be changed. For Single Copter and Coax Copter the FRAME_CLASS parameter should be set directly from the Full Parameter List until this issue is resolved.
Next select the frame “Type” for your vehicle. The default type is X.
For Tricopters, Y6, Traditional Helicopters, Bicopters, SingleCopters and CoaxCopters the frame type is ignored.
