The firmware flashed into the Pro Micro is version 4.1.1 which can be found here:

https://github.com/brumster/EDTracker2/ ... 2_9250.ino

Unfortunately the EDTracker website is still down so you can’t use the GUI to flash the firmware so currently the only way to flash it is via the Arduino IDE. There’s a few steps you’ll need to do to achieve this. I’m listing them from memory so sorry if I miss a step…

1) Download and install the Arduino IDE from the official Arduino website:


2) Next you’ll need to add board support for the EDTracker to it. To do this download the EDTracker Arduino board files from here:


Unzip them and you should have an EDtracker folder containing an AVR folder.

3) Next, locate where your copy of the Arduino IDE is installed. This may vary depending on the version of IDE you’ve installed and your operating system but on Windows 10 it’s usually installed here:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Arduino\

In that Arduino folder there should be a ‘Hardware folder. Copy the EDTracker folder you just downloaded and unzipped, including its contents into the hardware folder.

The folder structure should then look something like this:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Arduino\hardware\edtracker\avr

4) Next run the Arduino IDE and under the Tools->Board menu there should now be an entry for ‘EDTracker 9250’. Select this as the board type.

5) With the EDTracker connected to your computer select it’s COM port in the IDE by going to Tools->Port->COMxx

6) Finally copy the EDTracker sketch form the github page here...

https://github.com/brumster/EDTracker2/ ... 2_9250.ino

...and paste it into the Arduino IDEs main window overwriting anything that’s in there.

You should now be able to compile and upload the sketch by clicking the upload button (circle with a right pointing arrow) found in the top left of the Arduino IDEs main window.

Instead of a sketch that converts the the gyro on the EDTracker to joystick, I should be able to pull the gyro and accelerometer values directly, yes? I imagine there will need to be some work beyond that but perhaps it’s ultimately a better choice for this purpose.

We have an example sketch for the MPU9250 which pulls out the raw uncalibrated values from the sensor. Maybe that will be of help. You can find it in the first post of the MPU9250 thread here:

Thank You very much!

I made 50 pieces ED Tracker for my friends, they are using for DCS World. Some EDTracker's MicroUSB port is damaged, and I repair it. Big thanks the firmware, etc!

Best regards!
