INAV Configurator snapshots

INAV Configurator NEXT (New, EXciting, Testable)

/seyrsnys/ n. Manx Gaelic : liberty, independence, freedom etc.

This site provides recent versions of the inav configurator for 64 bit intel platforms and win32. These archives most likely more recent than those on the official site. There are also a couple of files to make the Linux experience a bit more useful. The extras include the icon image and an example XDG desktop file needed for a desktop launcher.

Note: These are x86_64 architectures and win32 only. They will not work on other hardware platforms such as ARM, MIPS, PPC, RISC-V etc.

Note: This site no longer provides linux32 archives (my 2009 eeepc 901 was finally retired from field duties); please contact me if you really need a linux-ia32 version.

If you're also looking for the latest inav development firmware, you can find contemporary hex files for popular FC at

Git log since last stable release


  1. Download the required Zip file, either as below or from the official site.

Note 1.9.4 is provided here as it will work with iNav versions prior to 2.0 (e.g. old style mixers, even on F1 processors). You only need this for firmware prior to 2.0.0.

1.9.4 is not supported by the iNav project; do not raise iNav Configurator issues against 1.9.4

  1. Download the icon and desktop file as below:

  2. Unzip / untar into the /tmp/ directory unzip -d /tmp/ or tar -C /tmp/ INAV-Configurator_linuxNN_x.y.z.tar.gz

  3. As one off, create a home for the files (this follows the convention used by the betaflight debian package).

     sudo mkdir /opt/inav
     sudo chown $USER /opt/inav # optional, for convenience
  4. As a one off, create a directory for the icon and move the image file.

    mkdir /opt/inav/images
    mv inav_icon_128.png /opt/inav/images/
  5. As a one off, move the desktop file into your local applications directory (or the global one)

    mv inav-configurator.desktop ~/.local/share/applications/
    # or
    sudo mv inav-configurator.desktop /usr/share/applications/
  6. Move the unzipped files into a sanely named directory mv /tmp/INAV\ Configurator /opt/inav/inav-configurator. If you're using an official release, it may be necessary to make the inav-configurator file executable chmod +x /opt/inav/inav-configurator/inav-configurator.

  7. You can now lauch the standalone configurator /opt/inav/inav-configurator/inav-configurator You can add a desktop launcher using the facilities of your desktop environment: e.g.

    • Gnome Shell : 'Add to Favourites'
    • Budgie / Plank : 'Keep in Dock'

    The desktop files assume you're using the same directory structure as above (/opt/inav/inav-configurator).

  8. In order to upgrade to a later version

    • Remove the configurator directory rm -rf /opt/inav/inav-configurator
    • Repeat steps 1, 3 and 7.

Linux Helper Scripts

Note that the official configurator build environment supports only ia32 and x86_64. If you want to build for e.g. Arm then you would need to (a) find a suitable distribution of nw.js and (b) update the gulp configuration to support that architecture.

Blackbox tools

It is recommended that you use the latest inav blackbox tools (blackbox_decode, blackbox_render) with inav 2.3 and later.
