@mikeller what should I say just throw it into the general chat or would it be better if I make a pull request
sorry for all the newbie questions I'm just not sure how to get started contributing to betaflight

Anyone know where I can find schematics for the Omnibus AIO F7?
Michael Keller
@mikeller
Not sure if they are publicly available. Probably best ask the supplier.
John Smiley
@jrsmiley
I was trying to find a way to ask the supplier / manufacturer. Their site is pretty sparse. Not much there.
I guess it won't be that hard to reverse-engineer.
AnyFD F7 publishes their schematics. It's not like there's anything special about the Omnibus that they need to protect the schematic.

@mikeller
Don't tell me. I think it's mostly just the fact that it is not something that is generally done, schematics for any other electronics devices aren't published either.

Yo.
Does the anti-gravity mode switch enable or disable anti-gravity? Unclear from release if it's a "on to disable" or "on to enable" type of switch.
Wording in the release implies on = disable.
Checked source, on = enable, nevermind!

Hey, I was recently checking logs to check for the reasons of twitching and I found some flight mode switches during flight: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ILKkKqudap8 (at 0:02 and 0:16). I could understand ARM, but MAG and LEDMAX are not even mapped in my AUX config? (3.1.7)
Michael Keller
@mikeller
There were changes in the mode ids between 3.1.6 and 3.1.7, I suspect either the switches on your TX are mapped to the wrong modes now (if you did a diff / dump - restore when upgrading), or the modes shown in the blackbox log viewer are incorrect. Also, check the switches on your TX, could be a bad contact / loose wire.
Thomas
@helpsterTee
I only have ARM and Airmode / AntiGravity assigned in the config. Fresh install. Even when labels in viewer are wrong there shouldn't be any mode switches at all? BrainFPV RE1 if that rings any bells to someone. Will unassign any unnecessary stuff on my TX for now
Michael Keller
@mikeller
That's why I mentioned checking the switches / cabling in your TX. ;-)

Can anyone tell me how the navigation.c functions actually influence quad flight? I've integrated a machine vision positioning system, and have it working well as gps and sonar, and for altitude hold. But gps hold does nothing - and when I inspect the code, I struggle (for 2 days now) to see how it has any outputs that couple back to flight control. Any hints appreciated. Thanks.
Michael Keller
@mikeller
Not sure that any of this code actually works in current Betaflight. It's legacy code, and since Betaflight is focused on racing / performance, it does not get a lot of attention. What you are doing sounds a lot like it is a better match for iNav: https://github.com/iNavFlight/inav
sneiman
@sneiman
@mikeller Yes it definitely is - unfortunately the fc target I'm using doesn't support inav. guess it's time for a new fc!
Michael Keller
@mikeller
Sounds like a better proposition than fixing this in Betaflight. Also, if it's an F3 target, GPS support has been the sacrificial lamb in the past that's been disabled when flash space was running out.

Hi anyone have the MSP_SET_RAW_RC command working via usb to naze32... I am able to get attitude and imu data from he board but not able to send motor commands. :S I tried loading a firmware that had UART1 enabled for MSP for 3.1.6 but still no luck.
Andrey Mironov
@DieHertz
Please move to BF Slack :-)
@Niko-La Naze32 has USE_RX_MSP undefined

@Niko-La
@DieHertz Thanks will join the BF Slack... do you have any idea which board RX_MSP works for :(

@Knifa
i made some python tools for working with MAX7456 fonts
might be useful for OSD stuff? https://github.com/Knifa/MAX7456-Font-Tools
working with that GUI one was a huge pain
Michael Keller
@mikeller
Nice work @Knifa. You might want to come hang out in the Betaflight slack (registration at http://www.betaflight.ch/)
Daniel Callander
@Knifa
ah did you guys move?
why slack over gitter?
cheers also :) will share it there
Michael Keller
@mikeller
Yes we did. Gitter is still kind of a catch-all for occasional posts. Reason: Way better integrations for all kinds of stuff.

@s0up
anybody pretty knowledgeable about the current state of nav features in BF?
i was thinking about taking a whack at cleaning up some of it
not bloating up BF, but possibly adding a very low tech working version of RTH using gps/baro only

@JonnyPhenomenon
is it just me, or is www.betaflight.ch down?

@mikeller
@JonnyPhenomenon: Yes it is. Give me your email and I'll send you an invite.

@mikeller Hello Michael. My team is working on flight controller based on STM32F446 with 2x sensor reservation for our future X8 drone. At the moment we are looking for embedded developer(s) who can prepare data fusion and general control software for us. Project can be either private or public but definitely paid for results. I have seen actively participate in key parts of Betaflight and do hope you have experience and probably time to spend on our project as well. May be we some references to other possible team members. Thanks. sergey at robotopia dot eu
Michael Keller
@mikeller
@Robotopia-eu: Betaflight has moved from gitter to Slack. You're probably better off asking there, registration is at https://slack.betaflight.com/

Hi @mikeller I noticed you created the Matek F411 target, and am wondering if you would be willing to port this to the INAV fork?
Michael Keller
@mikeller
I can have a look into it - it might involve a fair bit of change, if F411 isn't supported in iNav yet.

@adnanp78
hello guys. is there any betaflight board on budget that can handle hexacopter, we get kit from ebay with APM2 and this is no more supported :(
what you can suugest to us else ?
tnx in advance and best regards
Michael Keller
@mikeller
Hi @adnanp78. I'd go for any of the non-nano OMNIBUS flight controllers: https://store.myairbot.com/flight-controller.html?dir=asc&order=price They are good value for price.

Hi!
i am running the betaflight SITL, but it doesn't answer to mavlink commandws on port 5761 yet
I am trying to use dronekit in python to send mavlink commands
Michael Keller
@mikeller
You need to configure port 5761 (shown as UART1) for Mavlink, or this won't work.
