Intel Aero Ready to Fly UAV KEY AIRCRAFT AND SYSTEMS NOTES Specifications ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● Voltage Input 11.1 - 14.8V Intel Aero Compute Board Intel® AtomTM x7-Z8750 processor, 4 GB LPDDR3-1600, 32 GB eMMC Dual Band Wireless-AC 8260 MicroSD slot M.2 connector 1 lane PCIe for SSD USB 3.0 OTG Programmable I/O via Altera Max 10 FPGA Insyde Software InsydeH2O UEFI BIOS optimized for Aero Platform Dronecode PX4 autopilot (STM32 MCU, MAVLink protocol over HSUART) Sensors ○ Intel RealSense camera (R200) ○ 8MP RGB camera (front-facing) ○ down-facing monochrome VGA camera w/ global shutter ○ 6 degrees of freedom (DoF) inertial measurement unit (IMU) ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ○ Magnetometer ○ Altitude ○ GPS ○ compass Props Yuneec Typhoon H 230mm Spektrum* DSMX* Serial Receiver Spektrum DXe Transmitter (2.4GHz DSMX Flight time: 20 min (4S 4000mAh battery, hovering, no added payload) Max sustained wind: 15 knots Max control range: 300m Max airspeed: 15 m/s Max operational altitude: 5000msl Temperature range (min / max): -0 C / +45 C Weight without battery: 865g Max takeoff gross weight: 1900g Width: 360 mm (hub-to-hub) Height: 222 mm (base to top of GPS arra Use Notes Use credible brand lithium-Ion polymer (Li-Po) 4 cell 14.4v (4S) 4000mAh+ (with XT60 connector). Charge with credible brand charger. Battery must be secured tightly in the cavity with velcro straps. If battery shifts, control may be lost. Test UAV balance at frame side center points with battery inserted. Adjust forward or backward for best balance. Out of balance airframes add pressure to autopilots unnecessarily using battery capacity to compensate. GPS array mast may be stiff. Grip mast at center to raise 90°. Tightening clamp may take several spins to fully secure. Attach Yuneec Typhoon H 230mm props noting A and B types: ● ● A-types attach to motors with black caps by gripping motor and pressing down on the prop and twisting counter-clockwise (per the arrows on the prop). B-types attach to motors with white caps by gripping motor and pressing down on the prop and twisting clockwise (per the arrows on the prop). Transmitter Spektrum DXe Transmitter manual Install supplied 4 AA batteries or optional Spektrum 2000mAh LI-ION battery Set all switches as shown for normal flight modes. Warning: setting switches to other positions may interfere with motor disarming Flight Modes 0 - Manual required for indoor or areas without GPS signal lock. There are no automated flight controls requiring a certain level of skill to fly safely. 2 - Position Hold takes advantage of all automated flight control features compensating for flight variables like wind. This mode also controls descent making safe landings more certain. Return to Home: On intentional or accidental UAV loss of signal an automated program return and lands the aircraft at the location recorded by the GPS at takeoff governed by remaining battery capacity.

Power up the board and press Escape at splash screen to enter BIOS setup Select Boot Manager Under EFI Boot Devices select EFI USB Device In GRUB menu, select Install Follow the console prompts to install image to the eMMC Console will prompt the user to remove the USB installer and press enter This will reboot the system into new image Update BIOS with latest capsule Download latest BIOS rpm package (e.g. capsule-01.00.12-r0.core2_64) Verify md5sum checksum - if not matching, board could be bricked . Log into console via ssh, USB or direct connection with USB drive copy BIOS image into root directory of Aero board Run command $ root@intel-aero:~# rpm -ivh capsule-01.00.12-r0.core2_64 Message indicates rpm successfully installed in /boot/ Preparing... ############################################ [100%] 1. capsule ############################################ [100%] confirm BIOSUPDATE.fv is located in /boot/ $ reboot Update FPGA Firmware $ root@intel-aero:~# cd /etc $ root@intel-aero:~# jam -aprogram aero_RTF_kit_fpga.jam Update Dronecode PX4 firmware $ root@intel-aero:~# cd /etc/px4-fw $ root@intel-aero:~# aerofc_update.sh nuttx-aerofc-v1-default.px4 Intel Aero Ready to Fly UAV NORMAL PROCEDURES CHECKLISTS POWER UP / SAFETY CHECK 1. Inspect frame for loose, cracked or damaged parts 2. Inspect props for imperfections and securely attached 3. GPS array is raised and secured 4. Verify UAV battery fully charged, fully inserted and tightly secured by the straps 5. Inspect that all wires secure and do not interference with props 6. Verify transmitter batteries are fresh or fully charged 7. Switch on transmitter 8. Connect UAV battery 9. Press UAV power button for 1 second until blue leds illuminate and cooling fan spins 10. Verify transmitter bound to receiver a. if receiver orange led steady on > proceed to item 11 b. if receiver orange LED blinking > bind to transmitter i. turn off transmitter ii. while pressing Bind / Panic button turn on transmitter iii. wait for receiver orange LED to change to steady iv. Proceed to item 11 11. Certify a clear flight zone of at least 10 meters 12. Set flight mode a. outdoors with strong GPS signal > i. wait for at least 2 minutes to establish strong GPS lock ii. set flight mode to 2 - Position Hold (GPS) b. indoors or weak GPS reception > set flight mode to 0 - Manual 13. Arm motors a. move left Throttle / Pitch gimbal down and to right for 2 seconds until props begin to spin (without enough thrust for lift) b. release gimbal to lowest middle position Cleared for flight POST LANDING 1. Disarm motors: move left Throttle / Pitch gimbal down and to left for 2 seconds until props spin down. 2. Press and hold UAV power button for 5 seconds until blue LEDs blink 3 times. 3. Wait 30 seconds as drone powers down gracefully, fan will stop 4. Disconnect UAV battery 5. Turn off transmitter Secured from flight
