# mRo Control Zero F7 Flight Controller
PX4 does not manufacture this (or any) autopilot. Contact the manufacturer (opens new window) for hardware support or compliance issues.
The mRo Control Zero F7® is a new flight controller from mRo.
It is a no-compromise triple IMU commercial grade flight controller. It includes 8x PWM outputs (DShot capable), 3x IMUs, 1x Magnetometer, 1x Barometric Pressure Sensor (Altimeter), 6x UART, and SD Card, all packed into a 32mm x 20mm PCB. The PWMs are bidirectional, EMI protected, and level shifted to 5V logic levels. All accessed using front and rear 30pin Molex PicoClasp connectors. A durable plastic case, conformal board coating, and optional temperature calibration included.
This flight controller is manufacturer supported.

# Where to Buy
# Building Firmware
Most users will not need to build this firmware! It is pre-built and automatically installed by QGroundControl when appropriate hardware is connected.
To build PX4 for this target:
# Debug Ports
# Console Port
The PX4 System Console runs on
USART7 using the pins listed below.
This is a standard serial pinout, designed to connect to a 3.3V FTDI (opens new window) cable (5V tolerant).
|mRo control zero f7||FTDI|
# SWD Port
The SWD port (JTAG) for FMU debugging is a TC2030 debug connector, as shown below.
You can use the Tag Connect (opens new window) cable TC2030 IDC NL (opens new window) below (with associated retaining clip (opens new window)) to attach to either a BlackMagic probe or a ST-LINK V2 debugger.
There is also an ARM20-CTX 20-Pin to TC2030-IDC adapter (opens new window) that can be used with other debug probes.
# Serial Port Mapping
|USART2||/dev/ttyS0||TELEM1 (flow control)|
|USART3||/dev/ttyS1||TELEM2 (flow control)|
|USART6||/dev/ttyS3||Flex port (can be configured as SPI or UART with Flow Control).|
|UART8||/dev/ttyS5||Free serial port (typically for FrSky telemetry)|
