Ground Station Setup

The first step is to download and install the following tools that we will use to load Arducopter 32 firmware into VRBrain board.

Be sure you download them all and that you install the correct version for your operating system (32bit or 64bit).

VRBRAIN 5, VRμBRAIN 5, VRBRAIN 4.5 with NuttX RTOS

You can find the drivers here.

VRBRAIN 4.x

dfuseDfuse uploader (download here).

This will be used to flash your board. Extract the zip into a folder and launch setup for the correct operating system (windows 32bit or 64bit). Only windows is supported at the moment.


STM32 VCP drivers (download here).

These will let you use the USB to connect and configure your board using the Mission Planner. This feature does not work with all computers. Eg. Windows 8 is still not supported. You can download and install the drivers and then try the *USB firmware and see if it works.

 

mpMission Planner (download here)

We need to download and install also Mission Planner software.

Mission planner is fully compatible with VRBRAIN, so you should always check for updates regularly.

You can find operating instructions on Arducopter pages here.
