|4 Hardware UARTS - Shared PPM/UART TBD
|LDO Linear: 1A Max
|Switching Freq: 1.25MHz
Manufacturers and Distributors
V2 improved upon the Kiwi F4 by adding an SD Card slot, moving the IMU closer to the center of the board, and changing the through hole solder points to pads.
A cheaper variant of the Kiwi F4 V2 that removes the PDB socket, the OSD, and the video line filters.
FAQ & Known Issues
Troubles Entering Bootloader Mode (DFU):
Some devices (e.g. receivers connected to SBUS/IBUS port or devices connected to one of the UARTS) can inhibit the FC from entering USB bootloader mode. In this case the FC will not be detected by Windows/MacOS. Windows detects the FC as "Unknown Device", MacOS reports "enumeration errors". If you see some of these errors unplug all devices from the FC and flash the FC standalone.
Voltage and Current Scaling:
Flying Lemon said to use the following for scale: voltage 57, current 444 offset 11.
I2C (Disabled by Default)
Enable Camera Control:
- See this page for setting up your camera.
- After configuring your hardware (RC Filter) solder your OSD control wire to the VTX.CLK pad (PIN B06).
- Enter the following commands:
resource CAMERA_CONTROL 1 B06
set camera_control_mode = software_pwm
set camera_control_ref_voltage = 330
set camera_control_key_delay = 180
set camera_control_internal_resistance = 470
You may have to set your reference voltage, key_delay, and/or internal resistance depending on your camera. For me ( MiddleMan5 ), I soldered a 1uF capacitor between OSD and ground directly on my Foxeer Monster V2 and added an inline resistor of 220 ohms to the OSD pad (VTX.CLK). My reference voltage and key delay were the same as listed above, my internal resistance was set to 107.
NOTE the above configuration worked for me, it is not guaranteed to work for you, and you may have to play around with the configuration. The software PWM on VTX.CLK is probably not the best method either, but it does function perfectly well for my setup.
