Virtual Robotix IDE Pro is the new IDE for Multipilot32F1 (V1 and V3) and Multipilot32F4

The IDE is based on Eclipse (Indigo version) and uses CodeSourcery GNU toochain for the compilation of source code.

For programming the board it is possible to use DFU utility with USB cable for Multipilot32F1 or DfuSe utility with USB cable for Multipilot32F4.
Both boards can also be used ST-LINK/V2 (USB JTAG) with ST32 ST-LINK Utility

It is also possible to debug directly on the board with ST-LINK/V2 (withST-LINK_gdbserver) or with Olimex JTAG (with OpenOCD)

Dear Friends, the new name of VR IDE Pro is VR Universal IDE

This is the new revision of VRIDE PRO. It's universal because with only one ide you can build the best opensource software platform for you Autopilot. 
The hardware supported are :
  • VBrain (MP32F4 V4)
  • MP32F4 V3
  • MP32F1 V3
  • MP32F1 V1
  • PX4 work in progress.
  • Autoquad work in progress.
Firmware supported : 
  • Arducopter32
  • Autoquad PX4
  • NuttX OS and Application.

You can dowload it here :

This is the forum support page.

  • Im not good developer.Sorry for stupid questions.

    I didnt understand what is VR Universal IDE ? If i buy Vbrain, can i load autoquad frimware to VbrainV4? Is it possible now?

    I love autoquad.But i dont want to buy aq board because many FC(with stm32f4) uses digital sensors so i want to buy universal board for arducopter32, aeroquad, autoquad etc...


    • Hi Baris,

      so is not so simple upload different kind of firmware on vrbrain. Are you yet try Arducopter32 ? I know that there are some guys that doing porting of AutoQuad to VR Brain . I tested also a OpenPilot Revolution for VR Brain and it work fine. 

      Are you a firmware / software developer ?  What kind of experience ? 

      The Arducopter32 enviroment is available here  :

      OpenPilot revolution for VR Brain available here :

      The ide for build the project is VR IDE Universal or VR IDE PRO.

  • Anyone here try porting/installing VRIDE Universal on a Linux box yet? I'm about to attempt it the next couple of days.

    Just started getting back into VRBrain testing/eval (work pulled me off for another project the last 3 weeks)--looking into linux usage since my work project forced me to fork Arducopter 2.6 on linux.

    • Hi Clifford ,

      what mean fork Arducopter 2.6 on linux ? Do you want port arducopter32 on Linux hardware platform ? We start to work on Penguino Project ... that could be similar of your project.



  • Info from Autoquad forum ... some users start to use VR universal IDE and write a small quide ... see here :



  • I have now an IDE which compiles succesfully for STM32F4.

    I plan to use libraries from AP2, ported to STMF4, to implement a special device :-) I already have a prototype based on a LPCxpresso LPC1769 board and running part of the Gluonpilot firmware.

    This device is not an autopilot. It is used to measure lean angle on race motorbike to drive a giro cam, and additionaly generate a tick on canbus for the embedded lap timer, based on GPS. Plus an additional secret feature :-)

    Side applications could be live video with embedded cam drived from the pits :-)

    • Oh Great ,

      I'm working with Magneti Marelli Racing in Italy if you have some interesting project to present I'm available :) But you speak Italian ? My skype account is Virtualrobotix



  • That's the .elf file to upload ...

    You need to chhose the project . What you want build ? Arducopter32 , Autoquad or PX4 ? 

    Today i import also the last PX4 enviroment developed by Lorentz and Michael that's more efficient in build .

    I'm not yet tested on PX4 because i'm waiting the hardware i start to test on VBRAIN and NUTTX work fine.

    But we need to align the driver.



  • So, in autoquad project, after setting the path variable for make, and creating targets all and clean, I got this strange :-) message after selecting make targets->Build....  and selecting clean and then all   :-)

  • Pfffff, I "unrared" everything at c:\

    Still corrupted files: one .jar, some .pdf, cc1.exe, arm-none-eabi-ld.exe and a .chm in the stm lib.

    When I launch Eclipse, I got an error with the followin log file:

    tons of lines ending with  xxxxx.jar was not resolved.
