Revolution, Sparky2 and RevoNano boards supports external leds, up to 10 of the WS2811, WS2812 and WS2812B multi-color LEDs can be used. To use more than 10 leds you need to put the strips in parallel instead of series.
The WS281x leds do not work on CC3D/Atom boards.
|Board||WS281x Led outputs|
|Revolution||Servo outputs (1 to 6) + FlexiIO (receiver port) pin3 and pin4|
|Sparky2||Servo outputs (1 to 6)|
|RevoNano||Servo output #1 only|
External Led provides visual information about flight modes or warnings during flight/pre-flight checks.
Using Revolution board, the data output can be set to:
- servo outputs.
NOTE: If FlexiIO_pin3 or FlexiIO_pin4 do not work for you, try using a spare servo output.
Led is powered using Gnd and +5V from board.
Go into UAVOBrowser, HWSettings > WS2811LED_Out and select the output. Click on the red arrow pointing up on a hard drive near the top of the screen to save the change to the board. Reset or power cycle the board and the LEDs will begin working.
