The Desire RC version of this board (which we manufacture here in the UK) is slightly different from other variations as we offer on board (native) bluetooth connection. Here is a picture of the board with the various connections:
Here is an "extract" from the V3 manual that describes the various additional pin connections:- you will need to look at the manual for full details:
The board comes with a dedicated power lead which plugs into the "red" power plug on the board. You will need to terminate this onto a plug that you will use to connect your power supply, in the picture below, you can see a couple of examples using a standard 3s and a 6s balance lead plug:
Latest GUI and firmware:
Warning: Do not attempt to install earlier versions of firmware than 2.4 b8 as this will stop the board from functioning and it is not possible to re-flash new firmware to the board without it being returned to us for repair which will incur a charge!
Warning: Do not increase the baud rate of the board to anything more than 115200 as this will deactivate the bluetooth connection (it cannot cope with anything higher than a baud rate of 115200). If you do select the higher baud rate and "write" it to the board you will no longer be able to communicate via the bluetooth connection and the board will have to be re-set to its default configuration by pressing the menu button 10 times - beware this will erase all of your PID settings so make sure you make regular backups! If this fails then the board will have to come back to us for a factory re-set. The latest GUI should now have a warning about this. In addition from firmware revision 2.50b5 there will be an option to click the menu button 12 times will will revert to a baud rate of 115200 without a full re-set.
The only difference between the Desire manual and the standard Basecam manual is the board layout and the direct connection via Bluetooth. So please see the first few pages of the Desire RC 2.42 manual which you can down load below
