USB ports on flightfeeder


#1

Hi,
I am new to flightfeeder.
Having a following query.
What’s use of 2- USB ports available on Flightfeeder? Can it be used to connect to PC or using LAN only it is possible?

Thanks,
Hiren

Im asking the same thing for a long time

They’re just USB host ports connected to a Pi internally. You can e.g. plug in a keyboard there. How would a USB connection to a PC work?

The USB ports are reserved for possible future use.
There is an HDMI port to attach an (optional) monitor to view a Status screen.

There’s been a lot of chatter recently on the RasPi forum about USBNet, (mostly from Zero, but it’s applicable to any model.) You could do some local networking via RasPi to Host USB connection…
