    GPS is alright. Something wasn't working well with the firmware + my FC in iNav. Frying the FCB was a pure a sloppy mistake of course, have a multimeter, know how to use it. lol Will probably work much better with a all Matek setup, with an FCB that has specific version support in both iNav abd BF.

    Cool! So this one then? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Matek-Systems-F722-STD-STM32F722-F7-Flight-Controller-Built-in-OSD-BMP280-Barom/273969610563 Any known limitations I should be aware of? ...any other version I should get? UPDATE: I did order one of these, hope this will work out. Will probably...

    So, I never had much luck after moving to iNav. A few flying hick-ups made it smash into the ground. Should have sticked with Betaflight. Killed a bunch of props. Had problems starting it after and when I was to move back to Betaflight I had a mishap where the USB-cable touched a parts of the...

    I just found a thread on RCGroups talking about using OMNIBUSF4V3 instead. I switched to that firmware it all seems to work now!

    My GPS isn't working correctly in iNav, which I feel is at least a bit strange as it does in Betaflight. As it works in BF I suspect it's connected correctly. I have a RadioLink M8N SE100 GPS and an Omnibus F4 V5 FC flashed to Omninbus F4 Pro. The magnetometer works fine in iNav and I've set GPS...

    https://github.com/iNavFlight/inav/blob/master/docs/Board%20-%20Omnibus%20F4.md Omnibus F4 Pro Sometimes called Omnibus F4 v2 Pro, but also exists v3, v4 & v5 versions with no functional differences

    Cool! Thanks for the quick reply. Before I do, can you just tell me the reasoning/logic behind picking that firmware version? Do you just know it's compatible or what? Is there a resource for looking this stuff up?

    Very frustrating! My version of the Omnibus FCB isn't in the iNav firmware list. What can I do to get around this? I really want to move to iNav. See list of attached firmware versions. I have the Omnibus F4 V5.

    Hi all! Here's an update on the project. I've now done some light test flying. I'm not very experienced flying drones and only been flying simple ready-to-fly drones with a lot of built-in flying support. Alt. hold etc. etc. This made it quite hard now at first. Struggled to keep a certain...

    Update. Going pretty well. Drone arming, FCB axis configured, motors spinning the right way, motor and protocal configured etc. and I've ordered a bunch of props. One thing I can't quite get the hang of is the Failsafe settings in Betaflight. When I turn off the transmitter the motors keep...

    Thanks for this @wafflejock The receiver is fully connected and I THINK it works, going to look into the rest in the coming days. One quick thing on anopther topis. I have had a really hard time finding the right kind of props. Someone a while back mentioned I should probably go for cheap 8x45...

    Progress!! Got the servo cable in the mail today, so now the receiver is connected and it all seems to be working. Was able to control the little drone thing in Betaflight. What do I do next? Where do one start in terms of configuring, programming, mapping etc. now that all the components are in...

    Thanks! Sure will. Just waiting for the serove cable to arrive in the mail to get going with setting up the receiver. Anyhting to think about regarding that bit?

    Solved it! As I was as sure as I could be that I've connected the GPS correctly I concluded the problem had to be Betaflight, not the app itself as it supports GPS, but the settings. Thanks from the video above I figured out that the Protocol for the GPS needs to be set to UBLOX, which isn't the...
