DIY dipole on the plane
Yagi 9db on the tx

We had an issue with the vRX yagi but...the video was still flyable

If you use the MultiWii in an airplane, you may need to change the PID attenuation not via the THROTTLE stick position but via an AUX channel so you can choose in a dynamic way the PID attenuation for the different flight conditions (dive, high speed pass, slow fly, strong wind and so on) regardless the throttle stick position

Here the original MWii code for TPA (file MultiWii_2_1)
Code:
 
  #define BREAKPOINT 1500
  // PITCH & ROLL only dynamic PID adjustemnt,  depending on throttle value
  if   (rcData[THROTTLE]<BREAKPOINT) {
    prop2 = 100;
  } else {
    if (rcData[THROTTLE]<2000) {
      prop2 = 100 - (uint16_t)conf.dynThrPID*(rcData[THROTTLE]-BREAKPOINT)/(2000-BREAKPOINT);
    } else {
      prop2 = 100 - conf.dynThrPID;
    }
  }
Following my Dynamic PID Attenuation mod (file MultiWii_2_1)

Code:
 
  #define BREAKPOINT 1050
  // PITCH & ROLL only dynamic PID adjustemnt,  depending on AUX4 value
  if   (rcData[AUX4]<BREAKPOINT) {
    prop2 = 100;
  } else {
      if (rcData[AUX4]<2000) {
      prop2 = 100 - map(rcData[AUX4],1050,2000,50,100);
    } else {
      prop2 = 100 - conf.dynThrPID;
    }
  }

*** ATTENTION ***

The code has been tested on the bench only!
Try at your own risk

This is my 3rd attempt to a very high flight with the GAUI 500

1st attempt 400mt ASL
2nd attempt 550mt ASL
3rd attempt 832mt ASL

The weather was very windy and the GAUI 500 was barely able to fight against it.

During the descent I've reached a GPS speed of 82km/h!!!!
