Connecting qGroundControl over WiFi

For setup and configuration of your M500 you must Remove the Propellers for safety.

Power on VOXL and Flight Core

Now power up the VOXL and Flight Core on the M500. This can be done by connecting a 5V Power Supply to the power module’s barrel jack. Or you can plug in a 4S battery:

To install a 4S battery, slide into the body as shown. There is a stop at the front of the vehicle that will prevent the battery from sliding too far forward. The battery should be pressed all the way in until it hits the stop for a consistent center of mass. Power on the vehicle by connecting the battery to the M500’s XT60 connector.

Connect to VOXL Access Point

From the factory, the vehicle will power up as a WiFi Access Point with a name like VOXL:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX). You can connect to it with a password of 1234567890.

Once connected to the VOXL AP, you’ll get an IP address from VOXL via DHCP, locate the address, in my case it’s 192.168.8.51.
