Download INAV

RubiQ comes pre-configured and almost-ready-to-fly. These settings can be verified and customized in INAV, an open source flight controller software. INAV is a Chrome extension, so you will need to have Chrome downloaded as a web browser. RubiQ’s with the red and black bullet motor connectors are only compatible with version 1.6.2 of the INAV – Configurator, which must be download directly from rubiq.edventures.com/downloads/. The INAV – Configurator is also available from the Chrome Web Store. However, the version downloaded directly from the Chrome Web Store auto-updates, which will eventually make the Configurator incompatible with RubiQ’s current firmware and the configuration documentation.

For Windows devices:

  • Download the inav-configurator-1.6.2.crx_.zip file from rubiq.edventures.com/downloads/, under the INAV – Configurator Download tab.
