|Subject:||[Paparazzi-devel] Questions about the Tiny 2.11|

Ok I bought my Tiny 2.11 and I'm putting it together. First let me thank PPZUAV for providing the service at a grreat price. : - )
I see the diagram at
and another at
So connecting the following is pretty stright forward:
Then I have my Radio the XBee09P (900 MHz). It appears the cable plugs into it and into the Serial pins on the Tiny. According to the digi web site : http://ftp1.digi.com/support/documentation/90000938_a.pdf, Pin 1 is the VCC and Pin 10 is the GND. So I think I can figure out how to connect that.
What I'm not sure about is why is there a seperate USB cable and port, and a FTDI card?
So I have a card from Sparkfun that converts USB to a Serial signal. From what I can gather it connects to the same set of pins as the Serial XBee communication unit. So I gather that the FTDI is used ONY for connecting the PC directly to the UAV platform. So normally I will not use this. Is it for prgramming only? Can I use the XBee to update the UAV, if say I change a flight lan prior to take off?
If the above assumptions are correct then why is there a a set of pins labeled USB just above the Serial pins?
