A Multiwii Serial Protocol (MSP) CLI

async_msp_cli is a command line program for configuring rebooting, getting status and downloading blackbox from Cleanflight, Betaflight and iNav. This is an incomplete implementation of the MSP2 commands, with some Cleanflight, Betaflight and iNav extensions.

  1. Mimic iNav, betaflight cli
  2. Send MSP commands asynchronously
  3. Be as fast and efficient as possible

Compiling from this repository also works similarly:

You can compile from source by installing Cargo (Rust's package manager) and installing async_msp_cli using Cargo:

cargo install --locked async_msp_cli
git clone git://github.com/BurntSushi/async_msp_cli
cd async_msp_cli
cargo build --release

Compilation will probably take a few minutes depending on your machine. The binary will end up in ./target/release/async_msp_cli.
