Some FC's say that they support cleanflight and have no mention of Ardupilot. Is this just because its what's recommended or because it's all that works?

  • Probably the Ardupilot is based on Atmel MCU, like Arduino. The newest flight controller are based on STM32F4 and STM32F7. – Marko Buršič Jun 24 '19 at 15:55
  • This is a usage question which should be asked on the support forum for the software in question, it is not an electronic design question fitting here. If you were personally trying to port the software and had a very specific question about a difficulty in your attempt to match a particular capability with a different MCU's peripherals, that might be on topic if well supported with the details of the problem. – Chris Stratton Jun 24 '19 at 16:31

There are pre-built binaries for many flight controllers.

http://firmware.ardupilot.org/ lists out the different ardupilot builds (arducopter, arduplane, etc.) and by clicking on them , you can see the different versions, then the different builds per version.

This document goes into more detail on the file structure they use for pre-built binaries.
