Hi Menno thanks for the reply.
I am running the Frsky D4RII receiver and I have the jumper between 3 and 4 as normal. My transmitter is set for PPM-SUM as that is all I use on all my Multirotors. I have just taken it straight from my APM 2 so I know its working.
In the Hardware window of the GCS I have selected PPM in the box at the centre top of the board picture. its called something like rsvr i think.
I also noticed if I try and change the channel in any of the boxes it is snapping back to the number that was in there before and wont let me change it.
Oh forgot I am running the version of the GCS that is in the package on this thread also.
Will try a few more things tonight though.

No external becs or other powersources connected to the board while doing this?

Do you have some jumper cables that you can use to connect your rx to the discoveryf3 board directly. That would rule out a short in the pcb matrix board.

Hi, great work with Discovery, just wonder why PD9 is SBUS on my F3 and not PD7?

How are you getting 10 PWM inputs on the STM32F3. I am only able to get one PWM capture on each of two timers. On my last controller (STM32F4) I multiplexed the inputs to get it down to two signals. I would love to see how you were able to get 10 inputs working!

Thanks.

Just look at the source: https://github.com/TauLabs/TauLabs/b...30x/pios_pwm.c

Just to make sure that all interested folks know where we ended up.
The project is finally called Tau Labs.

Great project lilvinz. My f3 board runs 'fw_discoveryf3.opfw' from the old lilvinz openpilot repo, but won't connect after flashing with anything from the new TauLabs repo, like fw_flyingf3.opfw that I compiled from next. Did I miss a modification to the discovery f3 that causing the problem. FlyingF3 is still the discovery f3, isn't it?
Thanks.

Guess this thread is moved.

In order to use the Flyingf3 firmware you also need to update the bootloader.

Beware that the pin assignment has also changed with this update. Please consult the spreadsheet that is in the Taulabs wiki.

another FlyingF3 took to the sky today.

I had a QA Iconic-X frame that I wasn't flying. I bought a shield from RC Flyer, a F3 board and Trex 500 landing skids so I could move the battery underneath. I flew a short maiden in the wind and it felt really solid. Not bad for a $11 FC (+ shield of course)

FF3Maiden (1 min 20 sec)


and YES it is large, but who cares

Wow you have a Iconic X laying around

Looks good. These kind if frames have a lot of room.

Interested in how you experience PID tuning. I find Taulabs/Open pilot hard to tune on a non symmetrical frame compared to Multiwii or KK.

Generally I've found autotuning will detect and account for the asymmetric moment of inertia.

Yes I know, but Autotune did not really give me sane values for Atti mode. Also it suprised me that the Intergral values for Rate and Atti are mirrored over roll pitch axis.

Guys do you maybe know in which software the quanton schematic and board files are made?

I fitted the board on a TBS like frame and it flies much better now. So I guess it was due to my home build H-quad.

I really like the room inside these type of frames.
