This is a list of tested hardware for the BBBMINI. If you have other hardware in use, please let me know, so I can update the list.

RC Receiver

  • FlySky FS-R9B with PPM-Encoder,
  • Frsky X8R, via S.BUS, 5V VCC, R4 = 0 Ohm, R5 = not used (open), latest X8R firmware required
  • Frsky X4RSB, via S.BUS, 5V VCC, R4 = 0 Ohm, R5 = not used (open), latest X4RSB firmware required
  • Frsky D4R-II, via CPPM, 5V VCC, R4 = 0 Ohm, R5 = not used (open)
  • OrangeRX R615X, via CPPM, 5V VCC, R4 = 0 Ohm, R5 = not used (open)
  • OrangeRX R620, via S.BUS, 5V VCC, R4 = 0 Ohm, R5 = not used (open)
  • Spektrum AR7700 PPM, 5V VCC, R4 = 0 Ohm, R5 = not used (open)
  • Spektrum Satellit SPM 9645, 3.3V VCC, R4 = 0 Ohm, R5 = not used (open), has to be bind before use
  • Turnigy 9x 8C V2, 5V VCC with PPM-Encoder (Arduino nano), R4 = 1k Ohm, R5 = 2k Ohm

GPS

  • Drotek Ublox NEO-M8N GPS module, 3.3V VCC, (-B /dev/ttyO5)
  • Hobbyking Ublox NEO-7 GPS module, 5V VCC, (-B /dev/ttyO5)
  • MAX-7Q Ublox Neo-7Q GPS module, 5V VCC, (-B /dev/ttyO5)
  • BeStar BN-800, Ublox M8N GPS Module (clone I think but reports as M8N), 5V VCC (-B /dev/ttyO5)
  • BeStar BN-880, Ublox M8N GPS Module (clone I think but reports as M8N), 5V VCC (-B /dev/ttyO5)
  • Neo 6M GPS module, 3.3 V VCC (-B /dev/ttyO5)

Telemetry

  • 3DR USB-Radio connected to BBB USB port, (-C /dev/ttyUSB0)
  • 3DR UART-Radio connected to UART4, 5V VCC, (-C /dev/ttyO4)
  • Crius Bluetooth Module connected to UART4, 5V VCC, (-C /dev/rttyO4), baudrate must be set to 57600 (AT+BAUD7)

add that line to your rc local, the link you provided is for the bepop. you would be better off looking at how the emlid or erlerobotics starts arducopter automatically. on the bbbmini github mirko provides instructions on starting arducopter. Add that line to your /etc/rc.local. My board boots quickly everytime.

Thanks Alex,

I did follow the instructions and it works very well!

Wondering if this would make for a relatively simple dual imu setup for bbbmini. if it reaches target it will include the mpu9250

Hi Patrick,

thanks for you picture - I was with trouble measuring voltage and after configuring mine like yours is working now :)

thanks 

Cool ,

Glad it could help :-)

Hi,

I made a second BBBMini board replacing an APM 2.6 and I'm having a issue with my esc.

I'm using this - http://www.emaxmodel.com/esc/simonk-series/emax-multirotor-4in1-esc...

and when arming the quad sometimes one motor don't start, or sometimes 2 motors don't arm.

I must take off the connector and connect on 5v source, and them insert again on BBBMini output, the motor start and all works.

Someone has problem like that ?

Unfortunately the Emax 4in1 is known to have a lot of problems. It won't work with Pixhawk at all.

Hi Mike,

thanks for your reply. Regarding persons with problems, I love this emaxx, its reliable, stable and works fine. I'm using around 2 years on APM. I will try research a little bit, for now I'm doing the procedure to disconnect the esc is not booting, connect to 5v, wait for boot and then reconnect to BBBmini out - for now it's working fine. I saw about a programming card and some guy has changed parameters and is working too - I will buy one of this cards and try reprogramming too.

Hi, after try almost everything - reprogramming, level shifter, opto coupler, this ESC doesn't work with BBBMini.

Anyone know if the BBBMINI is compatible with any of the FrSky receiver telemetry outputs? I notice that some Pixhawk users use an RS232 to TTL converter to talk to the FrSky D and X receivers, and was wondering if BBBMINI could do the same. Am considering an upgrade to my FlySky radio.

I tested it successful with a FrSky USB adapter connected to the BBB USB port. You could also connect the FrSky receiver to an uart port of the BBB, but you have to take care of the 3.3V and you may need a signal inverter.

Regards

Mirko
