Holybro X500 V2 (Pixhawk 5X 조립)

Holybro initially supplied this kit with a Pixhawk 5X, but at time of writing this has been upgraded to a Holybro Pixhawk 6C. This build log is still relevant as the kit assembly is virtually the same, and likely to remain so as the flight controller is upgraded.

This topic provides full instructions for building the Holybro X500 V2 ARF Kit and configuring PX4 using QGroundControl.

ARF("거의 비행 준비 완료") 키트는 하드웨어 설정에 많은 시간을 할애하지 않고, 드론 개발에 입문자들이 간편하고 간단한 조립할 수 있습니다. 여기에는 프레임, 모터, ESC, 프로펠러 및 배전반이 포함됩니다.

키트 외에도 비행 콘트롤러, 무선 송신기, GPS 및 RC 콘트롤러가 필요합니다. ARF 키트는 PX4와 호환되는 대부분의 비행 콘트롤러를 지원합니다.

필요 공구

Tools are included to do the assembly, however you may need:

  • 전선 커터
  • 정밀 트위저


Estimate time to assemble is 55 min (25 minutes for frame, 30 minutes for autopilot installation/configuration)

  1. Start by assembling the payload & battery holder. Push the rubbers into grippers (Do not use sharp items to push them in!). Next, pass the holders through the holder bars with the battery holder bases as Figure 3.

    Landing Figure 1: Components

    Figure 2: Payload holder components

    Landing Figure 2: Assembled

    Figure 3: Payload holder assembled

  2. The next is to go for attaching the bottom plate to the payload holder.

    You will need the parts as shown in Figure 4. Then mount the base for power distribution board using nylon nuts as Figure 5. Finally using 8 hex screws you can join the bottom plate to the payload holder (Figure 7)

  3. Let's gather the stuff needed for mounting landing gear as Figure 8. Use the hex screws to join landing gears to the bottom plate. You also need to open three hex screws on each of the leg stands so you can push them into carbon fiber pipes. Do not forget to tighten them back again.

  4. We will gather all the arms now to mount the top plate. Please pay attention that the motor numbers on arms are a match with the ones mentioned on the top plate. Fortunately, motors are mounted and ESCs have been connected in advance. Start by passing through all the screws as you have the arms fixed in their own places (They have a guide as shown in Figure 11 to ensure they are in place) and tighten all nylon nuts a bit. Then you can connect XT30 power connectors to the power board. Please keep in mind that the signal wires have to be passed through the top plate such that we can connect them later to Pixhawk.

    Figure 10: Connecting arms needed materials.

    Figure 11: Guide for the arms mount

  5. Tighten all 16 screws and nuts by using both hex wrench and nut driver.

  6. Next you can mount your pixhawk on the top plate by using the stickers. It is recommended to have the direction of your Pixhawk's arrow the same as the one mentioned on the top plate.

  7. If you want to mount the GPS on the companion computer plate, you can now secure the GPS mount onto it using 4 screws and nuts.

    Figure 14: Secure GPS mount onto companion plate

  8. Use the tape and stick the GPS to the top of the GPS mast and mount the GPS mast. Make sure the arrow on the gps is pointing forward (Figure 15).

  9. Finally, you can connect the Pixhawk interfaces such as telemetry radio to 'TELEM1' and motors signal cables accordingly.

Please refer to Pixhawk 5X Quick Start for more information.

That's it. The fully assembled kit is shown below (Depth camera not included in the kit):

PX4 Configuration


Full instructions for installing and configuring PX4 can be found in Basic Configuration.

QGroundControl is used to install the PX4 autopilot and configure/tune it for the X500 frame. Download and install QGroundControl for your platform.

First update the firmware, airframe, and actuator mappings:

  • 펌웨어

  • Airframe

    You will need to select the Holybro X500 V2 airframe (Quadrotor x > Holybro 500 V2)

    QGroundControl - Select HolyBro 500 airframe

  • Actuators

    • You should not need to update the vehicle geometry (as this is a preconfigured airframe).
    • Assign actuator functions to outputs to match your wiring.
    • Test the configuration using the sliders.

Then perform the mandatory setup/calibration:

Ideally you should also do:


Airframe selection sets default autopilot parameters for the frame. These are good enough to fly with, but it is a good idea to tune the parameters for a specific frame build.

For instructions on how, start from Autotune.
