In CLI:

Type RESOURCE

Locate UART TX/RX pad resource ID you are using.  We wired to RX4 in this demo. RX4 is A01  Note the name of the resource and ID. 

Next, we will clear that pad from its assigned resource. Type  RESOURCE SERIAL_RX 4 NONE  


Next, we will set the Custom Mode Switches. We will set up 1 switch Copy and past these Commands into CLI:   set pinio_box = 40,41,42,43 aux 2 40 2 1600 2100 0  


Next, we need to assign the Resource ID to the Custom Mode switch. Using the Resource ID from above. "A01"

resource PINIO 1 A01  



If you wish to set up more pads for additional RealPits. replace the area in brackets with your resource IDs: Copy these extra lines to add more modes as well.:   set pinio_box = 40,41,42,43 aux 3 41 3 1600 2100 0 aux 4 42 4 1600 2100 0 aux 5 43 5 1600 2100 0

resource PINIO 2 [resource=I.E=A04]
resource PINIO 3 [resource=I.E=A05]
resource PINIO 4 [resource=I.E=A06]

Type  SAVE  in CLI and then press enter. Your FC will reboot after applying changes. 

Now go to Modes and Assign an AUX channel to the USER1  mode. Just like an arm or turtle mode switch. Click SAVE

Now flip the switch and test. A RED LED will be lit on RealPit if you are providing power.

 

FlightOne Settings: 

  1. At the current time you must use Firmware version 1.2.x or greater to enable "PINTOGGLE" commands. This is available on FlightOne Discord. flightone.com/discord and website at FlightOne.us 
  2. Wire RealPit VTX + to VTX Positive pad and BATT+ to Battery Source (5v-28v)
  3. Wire VTC pad to TX4 pad on FlightOne FC. Solder the TX4 to NOR.  Then Wire GND pad to GND pad on FlightOne FC
  1. In Setup Tab:
    1. Setup PINTOGGLE switch. 
  2. Use Switch to Power VTX on and off. 

Notes: FlightOne Does not support ZERO power on. VTX will blip for a microsecond prior to turning it back off.
