Configuring the Wizard of CC3D
Ensure the CC3D flight controller is kept connected to the computer, and double-click to open the GCS just installed. The TX and RX data at bottom indicates the flight controller’s connecting status. If they are both in grey, it means the flight controller is not connected. Just replug to try.
Click Vehicle Setup Wizard and enter the interface of configuring the wizard as shown below:
On the interface of configuring the wizard, there is a red mark reminding you to disassemble the propeller blades before configuring the wizard in case of any accidents. Then click Next to enter the interface of firmware upgrading.
It will prompt you that the version of the firmware should be consistent with that of the GCS. For the first time of configuring, you're suggested to upgrade the firmware. Take the following steps:
Unplug the battery and USB cable from OpenPilot to ensure the CC3D flight control board is powered down and no LED is on.
- Click Upgrade
- Plug the USB cable when the bar starts running. Then the GCS will automatically write the latest firmware onto the board.
After writing is done, then click Next to configure the receiver of the remote-control system. Select the corresponding mode according to your receiver’s wiring. Here we take PWM mode as an example.
Click Next. Choose the type of vehicle the OpenPilot controller board is going to be used with. Choose Multirotor among the four types of vehicles - Multirotor, Helicopter, Fixed wing and Surface.
Then, choose the multirotor type. There are several choices provided on the drop-down list of the multirotor type. Choose Quadcopter X.
Click Next. Choose Rapid ESC.
Now you can see all the settings you just completed displayed on the interface.
Click Next to go to the interface of calibrating the sensor. Be careful to ensure that the vehicle is really level before calibration to avoid any error.
For hardware configuration, if you don't remember the options or are not sure about the settings, just leave the default option selected.
