Migrating from baseflight

Procedure

First ensure your main flight battery is disconnected or your props are off!

Before flashing with cleanflight, dump your configs for each profile via the CLI and save to a text file.

profile 0
dump
profile 1
dump
profile 2
dump

Then after flashing cleanflight paste the output from each dump command into the cli, switching profiles as you go.

You'll note that some commands are not recognised by cleanflight when you do this. For the commands that are not recognised look up the new configuration options and choose appropriate values for the settings. See below for a list of differences.

Once you've done this for the first profile, save the config. Then verify your config is OK, e.g. features serial ports, etc. When you've verified the first profile is OK repeat for the other profiles.

It's also advisable to take screenshots of your AUX settings from baseflight configurator and then after re-applying the settings verify your aux config is correct - aux settings are not backwards compatible.

CLI command differences from baseflight

In general all CLI commands use underscore characters to separate words for consistency. In baseflight the format of CLI commands is somewhat haphazard.

gps_baudrate

reason: new serial port configuration.

See serial command.

gps_type

reason: renamed to gps_provider for consistency

serialrx_type

reason: renamed to serialrx_provider for consistency

rssi_aux_channel

reason: renamed to rssi_channel for improved functionality

Cleanflight supports using any RX channel for rssi. Baseflight only supports AUX1 to 4.

In Cleanflight a value of 0 disables the feature, a higher value indicates the channel number to read RSSI information from.

Example: to use RSSI on AUX1 in Cleanflight use set rssi_channel = 5, since 5 is the first AUX channel (this is equivalent to set rssi_aux_channel = 1 in Baseflight).

failsafe_detect_threshold

reason: improved functionality

See rx_min_usec and rx_max_usec in Failsafe documentation.

emfavoidance

reason: renamed to emf_avoidance for consistency

yawrate

reason: renamed to yaw_rate for consistency

yawdeadband

reason: renamed to yaw_deadband for consistency

midrc

reason: renamed to mid_rc for consistency

mincheck

reason: renamed to min_check for consistency

maxcheck

reason: renamed to max_check for consistency

minthrottle

reason: renamed to min_throttle for consistency

maxthrottle

reason: renamed to max_throttle for consistency

mincommand

reason: renamed to min_command for consistency

deadband3d_low

reason: renamed to 3d_deadband_low for consistency

deadband3d_high

reason: renamed to 3d_deadband_high for consistency

deadband3d_throttle

reason: renamed to 3d_deadband_throttle for consistency

neutral3d

reason: renamed to 3d_neutral for consistency

alt_hold_throttle_neutral

reason: renamed to alt_hold_deadband for consistency

gimbal_flags

reason: seperation of features.

see gimbal_mode and CHANNEL_FORWARDING feature
