We have been working on getting a real release out for going on a year now.  Efforts to predict when a release will come out are usually wrong.  I'm sorry about the delay.

If you want most of what is to be in the upcoming release, you can go to the 'next downloads' and get the latest (I think it is r782).

My understanding is that Ardupilot is good stuff and has good autonomous flight support if that is your direction.  There is a learning curve.  That is offset by the fact that it is popular and there are a lot of guides and advice about it.  There is probably a list somewhere of boards that Ardupilot supports.  I would guess that they do support Revo and Sparky2, but as I recall, they do not support the on-board OpLink on these boards.  I have searched some and the only firmware I have found that supports the on-board OpLink is LibrePilot (/OpenPilot).  Timing is critical for both stabilization and for telemetry, and it takes a sophisticated firmware base to handle both at the same time.  My guess is this is the reason it is not supported.

Porcupinerc sells both Revos and Sparky2s for good prices.  One of those has free shipping and that makes it a better deal.  I and others have bought some of each there and been happy with them.

You can certainly dabble in several different firmware ecosystems to see what you like the best.  :)
General Discussion / What is the current status of LibrePilot and the Revolution?
« Last post by hamilc on June 03, 2023, 04:55:19 pm »
I am interested in restarting my LibrePilot and Revolution quad copter activity. I read here that there is soon to be an updated release of LibrePilot. Is this still in the works? Also, I see that HobbyKing does not have any Revolutions any more. I see that Ebay does have some but is this a dead product? Is there a better controller that is compatible with LibrePiulot? Somewhere I read that AudroPiolot is compatible with revolution. Is this correct? Is ArduPilot a better choice now? I just want to restart with good options.
General Discussion / Old copter control can't connect to reciver*solved*
« Last post by sjak on May 06, 2023, 02:14:37 pm »
Hi! I cant get a old Copter control board(see image ) connect to the reciver a Frsky TFR 4 (jumper on ch3 to ch4 to get ppm on ch1 ) and transmitter Futaba T8FG.

I had openpilot on it before and I fly with it 2 weeks ago(a multicopter 5") the reciver is connected to reciver port as ppm+nooneshot

And I upgrade it to Librepilot 16.09 today (have tried to erase it also)and now I can't get it to "see" the reciver.

In the transmitter wizard nothing happens. Does Copter control boards work ok on Libre pilot?

*update* Have now test with a CC3D same behavior no rx connection.have also test with another Frsky TFR 4 and no connection. Have also measured the cable(multimeter)
between reciver port and rx all good connection.

So may I miss something in configuration ???

*Update* saw in the docs that the ppm signal should be at pin 3 when ppm+nooneshot  selected. I had it on pin 8
I have old plush ecs(yes this is old...) so don't know why i had it on pin 8(no blheli,simon k) have this changed since openpilot?

How ever now it work as it should!

Thanks, that's what I've been using.  Was hoping for some additional changes.  FWIW, I've not had any issues with r782.

Sorry.  Delays caused by me wanting to understand OSG Earth PFD working under Linux, but not Windows 7 on my laptops (two laptops, both dual boot Windows and Linux) and dropping the ball...

Almost all of the new stuff is already available in the current 'next' download if you would like to play with that...

Hello.  Is there any news as to the progress of the new release?  I have some CC3D mini and revos I can test with.  Best for me would be if there is CRSF support as I'm setup with ELRS.  Thanks.

Glad to see there is work still being done. I have been gone for about 2 years and thought I would check-in.

Sorry.  I've been pulled away for a while.  I have not been as active in helping get the release out I had hoped.

I will try to get back to helping get a release out.

Sorry.  I don't have an estimate for when a new release will be ready.
