FC and FPGA = unknown, ubuntu 16.04.3

Hi everyone,


I have a RTF drone and try to flash it with the instruction from


Firstly I undated the Yoctor and it ran perfectly, I also flashed the BIOS, FPGA and Aerofc without any problem. I got the version as below.


BIOS_VERSION = Aero-01.00.16

OS_VERSION = Poky Aero (Intel Aero linux distro) v1.6.2 (pyro)



Aero FC Firmware Version = 1.6.5


After that, I installed ubuntu 16.04.3 without network or any third party proprietary software. I am quite sure about it because I know there will be some problem with 16.04.6 or third party proprietary software.


After the installation I typed lsb_release -a and was sure that I got Ubuntu 16.04.3. Then I followed


  • Connect Intel Aero to the network with internet access (using Ubuntu's network manager)
  • Open a terminal
  • Add the Intel Aero repository (and key) to your sources:


Then I typed the code as below.

echo 'deb xenial main' | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/intel-aero.list

wget -qO - | sudo apt-key add -

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get upgrade

sudo apt-get -y install gstreamer-1.0 libgstreamer-plugins-base1.0-dev libgstrtspserver-1.0-dev gstreamer1.0-vaapi gstreamer1.0-plugins-base gstreamer1.0-plugins-good gstreamer1.0-plugins-bad gstreamer1.0-libav ffmpeg v4l-utils python-pip

sudo pip install pymavlink

sudo apt-get -y install aero-system

sudo reboot


However, After reboot, My ubuntu became 16.04.6 and bios, FPGA and Aerofc all became unknown, see the picture. I tried continuing with the part of QGC, but Mavlink-Router also stopped working.



Then I skipped QGC and continued with the instruction to flash bios, FPGA and FC. But the FPGA and FC remained unknown and the code to flash FC always get stuck, see the picture.



Anyone has any idea to solve this? I appreciate your help!


Best regards,
