Quick Start

MEX PDI Builder is the main configuration tool to adapt a MEX to a specific vehicle, including user-defined commnication protocols. It includes:

  • Telemetry: real-time onboard UAV metrics, such as sensors, actuators and control states.

  • Communications: through General Purpose Inputs and Outputs, PWMs and CAN channels.

  • Stick control signal management: compatible with Stick Expander, Futaba, Jeti, FrSky and TBS. It includes custom configuration for other sticks.

  • Arbitration: MEX is able to send PWM signals using arbitration in the same way Veronte Autopilot 4x does.

Download

Once the MEX has been purchased, a GitHub release should be created for the customer with the application.

To access to the release and download the software, read the Releases section of the Joint Collaboration Framework manual.

Installation

To install MEX PDI Builder on Windows just execute the “MEXPDIBuilder.exe” file and follow the indications of the Setup Wizard. Administrator rights are needed.
