Product Description

Aussie tech - PARIS Sirius™ AIR HERO•32 BorisB  BetaFlight (CleanFlight)  tuned for Knife  - with POLYCARBONATE Jacket  - for mini Quads  - Features a 32 bit STM ARM based CPU connect by SPI (Hero 32 SPI gyro data is 10x faster than other i2c f1 designs) and Runs on Open source code derived from MultiWii, ported and called "BaseFlight" which was then ported over to CleanFlight then ported altered by BorisB to be called BetaFlight with new code focusing a lot on the gyro Acro mode - BorisB BetaFlight makes freestyle Acrobatics much easier to fly and has very postive lock for 4 point rolls or flips or inverted moves - plus uses the CleanFLight interface UI -  easy plug-n-play interface (free Google Chrome extension)  CleanFlight which allows configuration and settings via USB - also has a CLI if needed for advanced users/dev setting (see bottom of this page). paris-air-32-4158.jpg

For noob Q & A questions - see bottom of this page

 NOTE : this new Polycarbonate case has conventional engine numbers now -( DIFFERENT to the older black metal case version you have)  - this Poly uses UI numbers - so be sure to use the CF UI or these diagrams 

 

Whats New in the AIR HERO*32 BetaFlight?  Why is it cheaper than PARIS AIR v2 Hero?  - less sensors, by comparison the AIRv2 has a  more expensive gyro and Baro  - however For FPV racing and 99% of fast LOS flying no BARO,  GPS is used (only for RTH return home  - This CleanFlight HERO•32 features IMU-Inertial-mass-damping case and offer the advantages on the previous gen Rev5sp NAZE32 ACRO with added SPI and direct SBus for X4R telemetry receivers, AIR Hero*32 is for hardcore FPV bang-for-buck survivability - The AIR Hero•32 features the MPU6500 Gyro/Acc on SPI bus, driven by an STM32F103CBT6 32-bit Cortex M3 ARM CPU so it is fast , powerful and affordable in a full metal case - importantly hero32 runs these sensors via SPI bus (not I2C). This frees the I2C for use on the flex port.  Its the FIRST AIR to offer DIRECT SBus with no other hardware needed - However we removed the barometer and GPS nav is an option with MAG because we already have them in the AIR-Herov2 for people wanting RTH in a mini. Future options like BLE Bluetooth will be possible with software support coming.

  • Hero•32 supports any 6 Ch RC receiver , yes but you need a 6Ch mini-molex cable (sold separately HERE)paris-air-32-4156b.jpg
  • Hero•32 supports C-PPM receivers, yes 3 wire mini molex cable supplied in this kit ; move white wire to PPM output - Pin 3 ; RC1
  • Hero•32 supports Spektrum s satellite Rx,   (this feature not available on flex port under current BetaFlight code) 3v3 on flex port side,  RC pin 4  ;  - Users must solder their own wire  to the Spektrum AFTER binding it first with a Rx - be sure to lift the Molex tabs move the wires/pins to the correct pins slots exactly.  GND-nil-Rx-3v3(flex port supplies 3.3v) - so red wire goes to 3.3v (NOT 5v) - Bind the Sat to a full Rx first - then disconnect the Sat. Download our PreSetup Spektrum DX8 Knife/Hero32 profile HERE and save it to your Spektrum DX8 SD Card.  it Has all the correct settings for modes on Flap switch - just check your centres are 1500 in the GUI - in the CF UI Configuratin tab - ensure you have feature ticked for a) enable ppm input; enable serial  receiver ; dont spin motors at start up - then b) in Serial Receiver box at left = spektrum 1024
  • Hero•32 Sbus - yes Hero•32 supports SBus direct on RC pin 4 green wire (move the white wire to pin 4 )- (for Taranis you will need to set travel limit to 80%) - make sure you have the latest CHROME & latest CleanFlight 0.65 or later right from the start - Set PORTS ; UART2 = Serial Rx SAVE ; Configuration tab, Receiver Mode = Rx_Serial ; Serial Receiver provider = SBus ; Save
  • Hero•32 Supports 3 Profiles - be sure to Backup these profiles - all 3 are saved into eeprom and can be selected quickly with CleanFlight - 
  • Hero•32 Supports Quads - yes ; paris-air-32-4162.jpg
  • Hero•32 Supports Hexii - yes
  • Hero•32 supports tricopters - yes - servo on M3 - then motors pin 6 5 4 
  • Flex Port - What is the default setting with CleanFlight? I2C or Serial? - answer = I2C is enabled when UART3 is not used, i.e. by default.

Question - What's the idea of the Hero•32 POLYCARBONATE case mass for an IMU? - the case mass resists by inertial damping the vibrations coming from the motors/props etc - so the dual function of IMU damping and crash protection are combined. The case is mounted by Gell tape and not bolted to the airframe in the same way a helicopter gyro is isolated.

Question - Hero•32 GPS? Answer - Yes - Thanks to the CleanFlight team coders !  I2C GPS is working and being refined now - we have already tested it - so it works fine on !2C via the flex port - the softwre is currently being improved

Excludes/Requires  paris-air-32-4164.jpg

  • Excludes Spektrum style 6Ch RC wire sold HERE
  • ! Be sure to keep your Quad STILL/MOTIONLESS/LEVEL for the first 5 secs after powering up the main LiPo/AIR HERO*32 - otherwise the gyro wont c calibrate correctly - during this process the green&blue LED are on - after gyro calibration is completed the blue LED will go off -  If the RED LED is on this means you are in Horizon mode - remember that FPV pilot fly in ACRO mode - ACRO is the HERO mode - we only use Horizon for photography work (hovering still) or noobs use it -but if you use horizon too  much your skills will start to fail and disappear.  Always do a few batteries in HERO (ACRO) mode with your HERO•32
  • excludes USB cable 2m (USB-> USB micro required sold HERE 
  • Support - RCGroups PARIS AIR Hero•32 forum here  rcgroups-support.jpg    <--- Support
  • Excludes setup on USB/PC/Mac by user - it's easy - see below
  • Excludes pilot training - use a flight SIM ; this controller is a decendant of the older NAZE32 ACRO - the main improvements being PARIS AIR Hero•32 form factor, inertial damping IMU metal case, Direct Sbus (no i external hardware needed) and the sensors are SPI based not i2c to free up the Flex port for I2C in future software - Generally if unsure - DON'T guess - ask on the forum above RCgroups link.warning-multiwiicopter-safety-symbols.jpg
  • SAFETY WARNING Excludes RC setup and failsafe setup - Risk vs Safety to others must be considered fully by the pilot  in advance of your first flight - You must decide what's going to be your failsafe pre-set setup and program the Rx with Failsafe settings - this is something THE PILOT does himself - FYI failsafe by Futaba/Spektrum/Taranis/FrSky is stored in the receiver (the Baseflight fa failsafe should never be used for one of these advance Tx/Rx setups - it is for ultra cheap cloneking Rx with no failsafe - So if you have a good brand of Radio like Taranis then we recommend you pre-set the failsafe in the Rx itself for all controls and mode switches) - NEVER fly out of range at high altitude - never fly out of sight LOS rule is very clear - you must keep sight of your Quad at all times - after you hit a tree branch (i.e. high risk flying, doing something beyond your level - we recommend you do NOT copy advanced pilots videos if you are a noob) - so after a crash/impact you have to cut & disarm the motors by RC as soon as it's DOWN - this means even if you cannot see your Quad, you may still be sending RC signals to drive the props and motors - this can lead to a burnt ESC/motors situation with noobs who have not thought out whats going to happen if they leave their throttle high or have their failsafe high.  We recommend you immediately set throttle to Zero and disarm within seconds after a crash touchdown - NOTE this - but, it's your decision as the pilot what Failsafe throttle setting and mode you want and what kind of flying/risks you are prepared to take both to yourself, others and finally of least importance but something to consider, your equipment (ESCs still commanded to turn after impact) - We recommend you rehearse your emergency procedures in advance - copter down procedure, and drill this - so when you have a crash you know what to do, exactly.  We Strongly recommend you program a failsafe into your Rx for slow descent 1200-1300uSec (depending on props) in Horizon Mode - then bind/set failsafe - this reduces risk to others - always fly at least 50m away from people or property of others such as cars etc 

 

HERO*32 Downloads

  • Download CHROME extension "CleanFlight" for PC or Mac HERE
  • Download Mac OSX USB driver HERE
  • Download Window 64 bit USB drivers HERE 
  • Firmware is installed and tuned for Knife - However for those who have older Hero•32 dont stress  ; at your own risk - Download the BorisB Naze version of code if you want to convert a BaseFlight Hero•32 over to CleanFlight - Uses the NAZE version of BorisB CF HERE - ALL PARIS Sirius AIR Hero•32 works with any version of CF 1.9.0 or later - but we found the basic 1.9.0 worse than baseFlight and Worse than AIR v2 - not as smooth ; The BorisB version is the first version we think is as good/smooth as a V2 or a BaseFlight version 
  • complete your configuration checks below in the Chrome extension called CleanFlight v0.65 or later ; press save ; press disconnect - then unplug the PARIS AIR Hero*32

 

HERO*32 Configuration 
we have pre-configured PIDS, Yaw alignment, motors stop on ARM, Channel mapping for Taranis Sbus TEAR - however as we don't know what type of RC Rx you want to use - thats something you have to do - select the correct Rx - connect it correctly (see photos above) then ensure your mid points are 1500 and your end points are <1095 ; more than 1905 ;; and you have to make decisions about failsafe and then set your RX failsafe itself too - so you MUST read the steps below - some of the things will already be set when you go to check them.  DO NOT press the button called "RESET SETTINGS" it will wipe all of the pre-configured stuff we have done for you. so in summary - AL THIS STUFF BELOW IS ALREADY DONE for you except the usb driver on your PC

Also make sure your ESC are running BLHeli 14.0 or 14.1 or newer !

  1. Install the USB driver above - then Connect via USB with the supplied cable ; connect the RC cable with Black wire on the right (see from above - logo facing up) - AIR does Not supply USB power to the Rx - 5.00v volts must come from one ESC red wire.  If your AIR is just sitting by itself you don't need to connect 5v ESC ; but if you have already connected the Rx and the ESC then REMOVE YOUR PROPS and connect the main LiPo
  2. install/Open Google Chrome™ - install the BaseFlight Chrome extension (above) - make sure you have version 0.56 or later of Baseflight - see downloads above
  3. press CONNECT
    connect.jpg
  4. with the PARIS AIR Hero*32 level and logo facing up - press calibrate ACC
  5. go to the 2nd tab called "configuration - scroll down to board alignment and enter YAW 180° (already done)
    yaw180.jpg
  6. ; under configuration/Throttle tab we recommend for SimonK CarbonBird ESC to set Min 1090/Mid 1500/Max 1850/Failsafe 1300/min command 1050 - be careful - although sitting under throttle the mid-throttle effect all ch channels needs to be moved to main RC Receiver panel) - SEE RISK-SAFETY-FAILSAFE above - if you don't understand failsafe - DO NOT FLY
  7. if using a C-PPM Rx (TFR4) select configuration/features (enable PPM input) and connect white RC wire to RC1
  8. if using SBus Rx (like X4R or X8R)- everything is done
  9. If you d don't want props to spin on ARM - then also select configuration/features (Don't spin the motors when armed) 
  10. The AIR 32 PCB does have a solder pad (BATT pad)  for advanced EE's wanting to monitor total voltage and trigger a buzzer/led (LED pad) strips 2011 style - use at your own risk - we recommend a full telemetry voltage system 2014 tech such as Taranis FVLSS
  11. press save
  12. goto the receiver tab - verify your Rx is functioning and all your centres are spot on 1500 - note - 1500 (Rx power does NOT come from USB - one ESC must be connected and powered first)
  13. in the Receiver tab select your channel mapping TAER1234 (or whatever Rx you have)
  14. goto the "mode selection" tab and select modes you want such as Horizon Mode/Angle mode/Arm   (none of the other modes are applicable)
  15. press save
  16. press disconnect
    dis-connect.jpg
  17. remove the USB cable last

 

HERO*32 Engine numbers

ESC are connected with the control wire facing up (yellow or white at the top) - do NOT reverse these wires - NOTE you MUST use the below engine number mapping - NOT the GUI mapping

 

HERO*32 CLI commands

Use the newest versions of the CleanFlight Chrome extension, v0.65 or later, this makes all but 1 CLI  redundant now. However always type SAVE before exiting the cli in cleanFlight - as it will not save if you don't, usually a trap for pilot used to Baseflight which does auto save - so all your changes will be lost unless you type SAVE in cleanFlight CLI - then click the other tabs ! ; - 

One of the most useful CLI commands is 

  • set

this gives you a report on all setting stored in the PARIS AIR Hero•32

HERO*32 Tuning - it Comes pre-set by MWC - no need to mess with it !!!  -  Flight tests on a Scarab Knife by Alouette III showed Borisb BETAFlight when combined with BLHeli 14.1   and MWC settings = smooth ACRO flight from the start  - ( combined with Quinton's PIDs (see PID photos at top) gave the best results in both ACRO with 6x4.5 props

  • typical cli commands for Knife  with BLHeli 14.1 flashed ESC for CleanFlight BETAFlight version (before these things were included in the new Config panel) - are


set dterm_cut_hz=15  (default is 40 - this will be fine if your motors and props are balanced - however if your aircaft is "dirty" - vibration noise from unbalanced gear, damaged or nicked props - you can dial in lower number like 30, 20 or 15 - but this will dull down the responsiveness ; then 

save

  you MUST really balance all motors and props and you must understand that different props, different weight motors also require different PID settings/tuning- default PIDs are for RED/Black motors - for heavier RACE SpecR motors you can increase "P" for pitch/roll by +1.8


Noob Questions

I cannot see any comm ports in CleanFlight? - You have not loaded/installed the Silabs driver - see downloads above

I am obsessed with loading new firmware when i buy things - Should i wipe the HERO32 and install the latest firmware online?  NO NO NO ! - in 99.9% of cases if you try to install new firmware you will brick the product - ! it's always something else and not a firmware issue.  Your AIR HERO•32 has been Flashed with the latest CleanFlight firmware, then tested by a human pilot who knows what's going on - then sent to you - DONT MESS WITH FIRMWARE - this will wipe all the settings and PIDS too as well as other stuff - Experts - only - At your own risk

My HERO*32 flops around and won't fly?  Do not move it during the first 5 secs after powering up the main LiPo - during the first few seconds the GYRO is calibrating itself

All my Motors Chirp as soon as i connect the main LiPo and keep chirping?  Motor Chirp is a safety warnng that the RC Tx/Rx signal is dead ; or the THRO signal is NOT <1100 uSec - set your end points to 1090/1500/1910 and if using OneShot make sure min command and min throttle are at least 90 points different ie 999 vs 1089 ; also make absolutely sure when the left stick is at the bottom (towards you) that the UI shows throttle channel is <1090 (you may need to reverse the Ch if the throttle UI bar is high >1800 when you check this) - if your motrs only chirp after 2 mins - that normal for BEACON or lost model chirping.

When i increase throttle nothing happens? For safety make sure ALL your props are OFF - then learn the ARM and Disarm stick commands below

How do i make sure i am in Acro mode? Go to the UI MODES tab and make sure you mode switch (usually SB) is in the position for all modes Red - a green mode means that mode such as HORIZON or ANGLE(atti) are active - 

My HERO*32 is twitching in the hover - This is very rare now with our new props and CarbonBird motors ; but - 1) Balance your motors and your Balance/check your props fully - lazy pilots don't get smooth Quads - suck it up and balance your props while watching southpark  2) ensure your looptime = 1500 (or 2500)  see above  3) Check your PIDs are as per the above photo above

My HERO*32 won't connect - load the USB drivers above - shut down - restart your PC

My HERO*32 motors all start at different times - yourRC centres are not at 1500 - use the CleanFlight GUI to trim your RC Tx to 1500

My Receiver has no Power on USB?  - The Receiver shares the DC rail with the ESC connectors - but is NOT powered by USB. To power up the Rx you need to connect the ESC's and leave at least one red wire connected (if you have Opto ESC then add a uBEC to any free pin - see photos above to see polarity)

I tried to use my old MuliWiiConf - now various things are messed up?   Do NOT ever use MultiWiiConf GUI code as it's out of date compared to BaseFlight - if you accidentally invoke multiwiiConf java window - you must backup your settings - reload the code from scratch via BaseFlight and restore those settings - or send it back for a paid firmware fix.

I want to connect a MinumOSD to my Hero•32? Use the R & T pads internally (receive Transmit + GND and 5v from the back pins)  enabled uart3 as a msp in the PORTS tab of cleanflight and enabled telemetry in the Configuration tab, save. these have been moved on Hero•32r2 to be external

 For Hero•32 r1 5.0v Vcc is connected to centre pins for ESC 1-6 ; however for Hero•32 r2 the 5.0v Vcc must be connected to 4 Quad ESC centre pins as the other 2 pins are now used for OSD data output (see blue/green circles  below)
paris-sirius-air32-r2-7636b.jpg

I want to connect RGB LED strips to my PARIS Hero•32? You must be running either Sbus or CPPM Rx - then use Pin RC5(blue wire port) as the signal wire - RGB Leds use 5v, GND and this pin - then connect them in series - in->out->in_>out etc

I am getting glitches/flips at random with my Hero•32 naze and my FrSky X4R (D4RII) - Why?  It's critical to keep any RC Rx away from ESCs by at least 50-80mm - this can be tricky on a mini - so we recommend wrapping the Rx in heat shrink - then Copper tape as a RF shield, then adding a final layer of heatshrink to ensure no short circuit.  Then still do your best to keep it 35mm away from ESCs.

I want to add extra i2c stuff via the Flex port? How?   CleanFlight code for the Flexport allows I2C comms with devices like i2C oLED or  I2C GPS/Mag ; the flex port is enabled for i2C by default - if you need to run a serial device such as BLE Bluetooth go to PORTS and select MSP for UART 3; other options for flex port =    1)Spektrum Serial Rx - see above ; or 2) Serial BT  - we dont write the software - its open source written by a team of coders at CleanFlight GitHub - realistically if you need to add something else then your most likely buying the wrong product - it is intended as an FPV racer controller to be flown in ACRO mode most of time- internally you will find the R & T pins for OSD - requires soldering same as NAZE

I want to add a serial GPS and code it for Aeroplanes - RTH etc - This option is not supported but there is a hack - use C-PPM on RC 1 - then RC pins 3(TX)  & 4(Rx) can be set for serial GPS ; feature=GPS via cli  - for planes AIL to M6, ELE to M5, THR to M4, RUD to M1

How do i add a Lost model Alarm (LMA) buzzer or LED strip ? For a PARIS Sirius AIR Hero•32 bit buzzer the pad internally marker "LED" is a GND trigger for up to 1A. Can also be used for a buzzer or LED strip lights etc ...... To trigger a 5v buzzer connect buzzer -ve GND ->LED ; connect 5v + to one of the centre 5v rail pins.  this applies to a std piezo 5v buzzer with two wires Red/Black  - 

PWM LMA Buzzer or a FPV Camera-tilt servo ( note never disconnect or connect a servo with live 5v power ! - you may permanently damage the Hero32 outputs/CPU - POWER OFF FIRST) - For a Pilot activated or Failsafe activated option on PARIS Sirius AIR Hero•32 bit buzzer - ie a more sophisticated LMA using a PWM 3-wire buzzer and C-PPM Rx setup these go active >1500uSecs - so you can pass Aux1->2 to Rx RC 5&6 -  ideally Aux 2 would be passed to RC6 - the last wire Purple would be connected to the buzzer white wire); and then GND->GND ; +ve to 5v   (same for a servo tilting your FPV camera down - we removed the servo orange wire and connected it to RC6 purple wire and then plugged the servo connector (now only had red/black)  to M1 to provide 5v power)

  • Then use the CLI command set gimbal_flags=4

Question = What are the stick commands for CleanFlight?  For Mode 2 (throttle on left) use these stick combinations - be aware that the stick must be held in this position for approx 1 sec

cleanflight-stickpositions.png

 

Question - For the 6 wires Receiver (Rx) cable what are the inputs ?  answer = Most Rx have the THROttle on Channel 1 - but futaba (DevO) have throttle on Ch3 - some radio makers call channel 5 and channel 6 by old outdated fixed wing names like Gear or flaps)

so for Devotion ( = futaba) the wires have THRO = white on Ch3 -then the same sequence as the other end

Yellow = Elevator = Ch 1
Orange= Aileron = Ch 2
White = Throttle = Ch 3
Green = Rudder = Ch 4
Blue = Gear = Ch 5
Purple = Aux 1 = Ch 6
-------------------------------------------------

For Taranis / JR / Spektrum - the wires have the same colour sequence at both ends of the cable Rx->PARIS


White = Throttle = Ch 1
Yellow = Elevator = Ch 2
Orange= Aileron = Ch 3
Green = Rudder = Ch 4
Blue = Aux1 = Ch 5 (Spektrum call this Ch GEAR)
Purple = Aux 2 = Ch 6  (Spektrum Call this Ch Aux1)
-------------------------------------------------
