Default UART order¶
- SERIAL0 = console = USB
- SERIAL1 = Telemetry1 = UART7 (support CTS and RTS signaling)
- SERIAL2 = Telemetry2 = USART1
- SERIAL3 = GPS1 = USART2
- SERIAL4 = GPS2 = USART3
- SERIAL5 = USER = UART8
- SERIAL6 = USER = UART4
UART6 RX is used for RC input and supports all ArduPilot serial protocols
Serial port protocols (Telem, GPS, etc.) can be adjusted to personal preferences.
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 7/8/9/10. Outputs 11 and 12 are not Dshot capable.
Connecting a GPS/Compass module¶
This board does not include a GPS or compass so an external GPS/compass should be connected in order for autonomous modes to function.
If the GPS is attached to UART2 TX/RX and powered from the adjacent 4.5V pins, it will be powered when connected via USB, as would the RX if powered from the adjacent 4.5V pins to UART6.
A battery must be plugged in for power to be provided to the pins marked 5V on the board.
