Accessories Bags (Quick-start)

Bag #1

Bag #1 containts the [30P-PicoClasp Header + MRC0272 + MRC0277] combined with the [Micro USB Cable] offers a quick way to attach your autopilot to your PC. The MRC0272 is the female USB cable socket and the MRC0277 is the 6-positions, red and black cable with a JST-GH header to attach your GPS. We recommend to always keep this harness on the ground and only to be used for quick testing, firmware updates and/or diagnosis.

This bag also contains the enclosure (optional) and the SD Card. Note that depending on the SD Card packaging dimensions, it might sometimes be located outside the bag.

Bag #2

This bag contains 2x red/black MRC0271 that will allow you to quickly attach your GPS and/or Telemetry modules that are JST-GH compatible. Please refer to Bag #3 for more PicoClasp to JST-GH for more options.

The remaining white cables [MRC0274, 5, 6 & 7] have PicoClasp crimps on one side and a “bare” cable on the other. Those are optional cables that allows advanced users to solder them to other hardware, or for pure development purposes.

Bag #3

This bag contains everything that is needed to assemble your own custom harasses and interface between the two onboard mRo Control Zero 30pins PicoClaps connectors to the standard JST-GH header with 4 and 6 positions. The JST-GH is commonly used for CAN, GPS, Telemetry and Power modules.
We have included enough “pre-crimped” PicoClaps to JST-GH cables with different lengths and JST-GH Housings to allow you to build any possible configuration. You won’t use most of the cables included, they are just there to give maximum flexibility. You can obtain more housings at our store to take advantage of the remaining cables or you can just save them as spare parts.

Bag #4

This bag contains everything needed to create your own harnesses to attach servos to the mRo Control Zero autopilot.

Use the M10067 board to interface with standard 2.54mm servos or the M10068 board for the standard mini servos connector. With some creativity both boards can be used simultaneously to control a mix of standard and mini servos.

Note that no all the MRC0281-xxx cables are expected to be used, only grab the length that fits your needs.

Bag #5

This bag contains standard 2.54mm connectors to PicoClasp crimps. This kit will give you the flexibility to interface with other devices using standard pins (similar to the ones used on JR servo connectors).

Many R/C receivers use a 3-pins connector to output PPM, SBUS or similar.   Other devices using the same approach includes, OSDs and power modules.

Or it can just be used for development/testing purposes.

HARNESS ASSEMBLY

Pico-Clasp Crimp Terminal

This is the Terminal Crimp that is included in each end of the cables.

Molex Pico-Clasp Connector

Most of the cables are just “pre-crimped” with PicoClaps crimps, they must be inserted into the “connector” with the correct direction of the latch.

Notice that the metal Crimp has a little metal “latch” sticking out, the latch goes into the “inner” part of the connector above, you will see that the hole is rectangle and you have a little opening pointing to the middle of the housing, that is where you insert the latch. Make sure it goes all the way in, no metal should be sticking out of the connector
