Orel-20 Backwards capability?

(Bernard Gonzales) #1


Does the Orel-20 have the capability of spinning in reverse (i.e backwards)? If so, is this done using a third party firmware?

Thank you,

There aren’t any third-party firmwares for Orel that I am aware of. The stock firmware allows you to reverse the direction of rotation by changing the value of the configuration parameter ctl_dir (reboot required). More info in the reference manual.

Does it support bi directional movement? We dont want to have to reprogram the esc to make it go in reverse each time.

Thank you,

Orel doesn’t support that currently (to be more precise, this feature is not implemented in Sapog, its firmware). However, Myxa does.

If desired you could implement that feature yourself, since the Orel’s firmware is open source: https://github.com/PX4/sapog
