Sparky2 and WS2812B 8 Leds board from Matek?
« on: February 05, 2018, 06:26:55 pm »
Hi all
I've got a Sparky2 FC running the 16.09 librepilot firmware in a custom built quad. I've also bought a WS2812B led board from Matek and would like to use it with this quad.
The thing is that I did not find any instructions for the connections and configuration.
Can anyone give me some pointers to install and configure this led board? Is it even possible
Thanks.
MA

Thanks... the leds do light up now  :)
Nonetheless I'm having a hard time finding the correspondance between what I'm seeing and the sequences as mentioned in the wiki pages.
Is there an issue if there are only 8 leds instead of the 10 mentioned in the wiki?
Are there other parameters (configurable and not something requiring a recompilation of everything) that may help in properly configuring the leds?
Thanks

There is no issue with 8 leds, you can use only one led as well.
