Silverware dedicated brushless fc (experimental hardware testing)

#36

Hey @silver13. Welcome to MMC forums. This is one of those rare internet spots where there’s a very friendly and helpful atmosphere and with a pretty good design and functionality.
There are a few older threads about your firmware dating back to not long after you initially released it, the search function works well here btw :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
Of course you’ll find quite a few familiar characters lurking about too :grinning:

Hey @silver13 - excited to see you here!

Right now I’m not competing with betaflight, but I think it’s going to happen at some point in the future.

This fc is designed for brushless, and current silverware boards require modifications for brushless builds, like removing the MOSFETs or dealing with the 1S power to still get telemetry from a larger battery. So it makes this more convenient.

Still, I’d like to point out, this fc should be classed as experimental as it uses some non tested parts, we’ll see soon enough how well it works

@silver13, I’ve updated the thread title to say experimental.

Hey guys, you convinced me to do a registration here as well. Seems inddeed like a nice and friendly place (have been reading/lurking around other threads also)

Main reason for me to come over here though are @NotFastEnuf’s printable frames. My brother invested in a printer right now and we need to do some test prints :smiley: Can someone point me to it?

Cheers

Welcome @SirDomsen! So nice to see you here :smile:
Here are the links to the files for brushed and brushless!
NotFastEnuf "Boss Series" Brushed Frames - 3D Printable (v2 stl files post #368)
NotFastEnuf "Brushless Boss Series" - 3D printable frames

This is indeed an awesome place and I can’t wait to hear about your experiences with the frames!!! I hope to see you document your journey with tge Boss frames in the linked threads so we can give you tips and pointers from what we’ve learned about them. I’m excited you’ll be flying a boss!!!

It’s great to see @silver13, @Ian444 and @SirDomsen over here at long last too. I see that @chrisdo has told you about the BetaFPV Whoop FC running SilverWare and was wondering your thoughts on this.

I am also interested in whether BitViper has anything to do with this and also your thoughts on this if that is indeed the case?

Oh and I’ll bite :slight_smile: Ordered one for "testing " I wonder if they want to sell some 8bit MultiWii Pedr :alien: Whoops ? I somehow doubt it :grinning:

I’m curious how they’re suggesting people configure it. It’s not the most newbie friendly process after all.
I’m also very curious what the silverware licence looks like and what/whose PIDs they used.

Pids are tunable on stick gestures. So that’s a non issue. License is in the files. You have copies. I wonder if they used nfe settings. Lol

Yes @Bobnova all very interesting questions but as they all know by now, Open Source licenses mean nothing to the Chinese and I suppose that it is a double edged sword. All this stuff is so cheap because they really do not give a hoot about who designed the hard or software and any attribution to those people a lot of the time.

It has happened on numerous occasions with the AlienWii and AlienFlight hardware and more recently the tinyFISH FC’s of Simon’s.

Some cloners give the proper attribution and some are not in the least interested and seem to mistakenly think that they actually did all the hard work :slight_smile:

Good to see you’re taking one for the team @pedro147 :smiley:
I would think this is just a clone of one of the many STM powered Silverware capable toy fcs out there. It was mentioned in the development thread on RCGroups that it would be good if the cloners pick up on the new design, I’m not sure if that’s the official line :wink:

Yes @Chaotix as we know all this is a runaway freight train and all I can say is

“sit down, shut up and enjoy the ride” :grinning:

Also @silver13 can I ask what is the feasibility of, in time developing a GUI based system for SilverWare ?

#52

Well it looks stranegly familiar if you only look at the center section of the board. There even is the pad for the baro leftover :smiley:

So I doubt it’s BitViper involved, just a slightly modified bwhoop board.

The interesting thing is that it comes stock on Silverware, Curious on which settings. Perhaps @pedro147 you can hook the debugger up to see what they did (don’t forget to disable the flash before debug option :wink: )

I think in general it’s OK to see the cloners not as cloners but as manufacturers as we never had the plan to sell the FC or make profit out of it :stuck_out_tongue:

I have zero experience with that but I have wanted to learn so sure, I am willing to do that when the FC arrives.

So debugger wise I have a cloned CC-Debugger is that suitable for this @SirDomsen

#54

No, no, it’s done using Keil. Not very complicated. Look here to get an idea :slight_smile:

I use the MIT licence for Silverware. That means anyone can do anything, pretty much, with it, except sue me.
