Copter 3.3

Copter 3.3 is released on Mission Planner and our Dropbox

We decided to keep it in beta for now to keep still available version 3.2.1 for anyone prefer and until the release of the next beta.

Now there are new drivers available from NuttX OS and started from startup script:

  • Eagle Tree Airspeed MicroSensor V3 – I2C bus
    • Only on I2C external bus for all boards (this bus is already used for external magnetometer and is available on all VR boards).
  • MEAS Digital Pressure Modules MS4525DO – I2C bus
    • Only on I2C external bus for all boards (this bus is already used for external magnetometer and is available on all VR boards).
  • Maxbotix sonar range finder MB12XX – I2C bus
    • Only on I2C external bus for all boards (this bus is already used for external magnetometer and is available on all VR boards).
  • RGB LED controller (TCA62724FMG) – I2C bus
    • Only on I2C external bus for all boards (this bus is already used for external magnetometer and is available on all VR boards)
  • PulsedLight Lidar-Lite V2 range finder – I2C bus
    • Only on I2C external bus for VR Brain 4.5, VR Brain 5.1, VR Micro Brain 5.1 and VR Micro Brain 5.2.
    • Both on I2C external bus and I2C external extra bus (DF13 connector under SERIAL2) for VR Brain 5.2. It’s possible to connect the sensor on one of these two buses.
  • TeraRanger One range finder – I2C bus
    • Only on I2C external bus for VR Brain 4.5, VR Brain 5.1, VR Micro Brain 5.1 and VR Micro Brain 5.2.
    • Both on I2C external bus and I2C external extra bus (DF13 connector under SERIAL2) for VR Brain 5.2. It’s possible to connect the sensor on one of these two buses.
  • OpticalFlow – I2C bus
    • Only on I2C external bus for VR Brain 4.5, VR Brain 5.1, VR Micro Brain 5.1 and VR Micro Brain 5.2.
    • Both on I2C external bus and I2C external extra bus (DF13 connector under SERIAL2) for VR Brain 5.2. It’s possible to connect the sensor on one of these two buses.
  • PulsedLight Lidar-Lite V1 range finder – PWM
    • This sensor has also an I2C bus available but there is a bug into its firmware and it is not safe. We recommend using this sensor only in PWM mode.
    • Available only for VR Brain 5.1, VR Brain 5.2 and VR Micro Brain 5.1.
    • This sensor needs a PWM input (pin 5 of inputs connector) and a Digital Output (reset of the sensor – pin 6 of inputs connector).
