You have to give details of the microprocessor chip used in the board. And if possible, the model number of the board. Then someone can help

Check this out:

You probably need to connect your FTDI CABLE in the slot as shown in the attached picture

What do you wanna program it for? This a legacy board which has been discontinued. And think it was only for fixed wing plane.

This looks like a Copy of Arduino uno or arduino Mega board
Try downloading the arduino software from www.Arduino.co.cc and use the example codes given in it.

Not for quadcopter. Read more at wiki link posted earlier for more details, infact you should have read it before getting the board.

Hmm, I believe I messed with this some time back. And yes, I had to solder in the FTDI headers. Did not take the project to completion, gave it away.

Start reading from this post :

http://www.rcindia.org/multirotors/quadrotor-build-thread/msg22282/#msg22282

See the below post for a video of a header soldered into the IMU board for FTDI.

Anwar,the board you used was not an auto pilot system, but an "inertial measurement unit", which can be used in multirotors too.

While the one being discussed here has autopilot system,but for fixed wings only.

Not sure where the confusion is. I even called out the "inertial measurement unit" you put in quotes in this post on the same thread !

http://www.rcindia.org/multirotors/quadrotor-build-thread/msg22504/#msg22504

I made it clear in my above post that it is an IMU, but needed soldering of additional headers before I could connect an FTDI cable to it.

Many boards that come from the DIYDrones guys need this kind of soldering before they can be used. There are links to the software and some discussion around programming these (both are Adruino based) in that thread also. That is the point.

He wants to use it for quadcopters, which is what I was talking about. Meanwhile the board you pointed out can be used for quadcopters while this cant be. And I think his intention was to use it for multirotors.

Yes the pins may have to be soldered, if its not the board shown in the image; but was not talking about that in my previous post.

And I wasn't talking about using his board for multi-rotors. Just wanted to show FTDI connections on such boards.

Although if you think about it, it has additional sensor inputs and with some additional parts (a 6DOF IMU?) and DIY, one could possibly use this for a multicopter. The effort involved would be highly questionable, unless someone wants to enjoy the hacking.

More on using the board posted by the OP.

Yes, its doable. Easier way out would be getting an APM 2.5 clones available at 50-55$, if OP just wants to assemble a multirotor.

No one has documented it online with success yet.
