Summary of supported targets

by peabody124 » Sun Mar 09, 2014 6:11 pm

This is a partial list of targets(flight controller) that run the Tau Labs software stack. See the wiki as well for more information.

- Quanton - The most powerful board. Uses an STM32F4 based platform with large amounts of connectivity including 8 PWM in and 8 PWM out. Fully navigation capable and with four serial ports for connecting lots of peripherals (e.g. GPS, OSD, Radio, external mag). Considered a reference platform and fully supported.

- Flying F3 - cheap (<15$) commercially available STM32F3 based platform system. Typically requires a shield to break out the connectors and provide a barometric sensor or some manual wiring. Capable of RTH and PH, as shown by metRo.

- Sparky - small single sided STM32F3 DIY platform. Demonstrated with RTH and PH. Available via peabody124.

- RevoMini - OpenPilot STM32F4 based board. Not a reference platform. Telemetry works. No hardware files available. Not demonstrated with RTH and PH with recent code, but probably capable.

- FlyingF4 - STM32F4 based discovery board but needs a shield to provide sensors.

- Copter Control - Older OpenPilot STM32F1 based platform. Legacy support and not recommended for new designs. Not navigation capable

- Freedom - F4 development board. Only two have been made and used to collect data and refine control algorithms. Awaiting redesign for wider release. Not a reference design.

Hi peabody124,

Just a quick question. I had a look at the schematic of the Sparky, and is USB working correctly there?
STM32F373 series MCUs require an external 1.5k pull-up resistor to D+ that seems to have been omitted.

Yep it works, but I have that resistor. R12

Aha, I got hold of an old schematic from (your?) dropbox.
Found the correct ones in the Git repository. :)

..make sure to not put the 1.5k pullup if you are using an STM32F4. It will mess up the USB. Don't ask why I know ;)

Yeah, the F4s have it built in :)

Hello,
I am absolutelly new in copters, but have some expirience with stm32 programming, RTOSes and electronics.
I want to create FlyingF3 copter, but I need a shield. How can I get it? What transmitter can you recommend? Is Turnigy 9X 9Ch Transmitter w/ Module & 8ch Receiver (Mode 2) ok?
Thanks.

I don't think one day is too much to wait for a response!!

You can try to contact dasdboot at https://sites.google.com/site/dasdboot/home

I have a turnigy 9X and like it but if money isn't a problem to you taranis worth each cent.

And it's kind of off topic

I have a couple unpopulated rcswift shields if you are interested.
