Hi Pete,
There are many worthy multicopters these days from build the board bits to ARTF from $50 to $$$$$. How much build and electronics skill do you have and what do you want to do with your model, sportfly, or AVP or some of both? The ArduPilot is open source, so no doubt the Wii sensors can be fitted, and some might have already done that, but for continuity you might want to stick with the sensors they are now developing with it. Check out the ArduPirates thread too: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...86011&page=465 Specific questions will be answered quicker if posted in those relevant threads. Be sure to become familiar with the info and tips in the Mega Index linked below too when you find time
Cheers,
Jim
