PIDflight Lap Protocol

The PIDflight Lap protocol uses a slightly modified version of the Multiwii Serial Protocol.


  • By default all lap timers are activated.

Getting started

  • Open serial connection to lap timing device(s).
    • Baud rate: 115200
  • Application issues MSP_SET_DEVICE_ID to all devices.
    // Initialise all connected devices identifiers starting with 1
  • Each device found and initialised will return a response to MSP_SET_DEVICE_ID with the ID it has been initialised with.
  • Poll MSP_CURRENT_LAP to detect when a new lap has been recorded on the lap timer.
  • Poll MSP_STATUS to retrieve current status of the lap timer.
