Driver Diag Pin

The driver diag pin is used for sensorless homing and stall detection.
The Fly-E3 does not have a way of disabling the diag pin as it is designed to be used with Fly-2209 drivers which have a switch on the underside of them for disabling the diag pin.
If you plan on using endstops rather than sensorless homing and do not have the Fly-2209 drivers, you need to bend or remove the diag pin.

Input voltage

The board can handle an input voltage up to 32v.

Initial Installation

The board that you will receive doesn’t have any firmware installed so when plugged into a computer, the board will show as an unidentified device. Follow the WiFi instructions.
