Talking about the baro - is there any configuration possible to tell the baro not to jump around like a rabbit? I mean it holds the altitude but it takes a long time and it's jumping up and down.

Do you have some open cell foam over the baro sensor? That can help settle it down somewhat so the prop wash isn't hitting it directly.

Hey does anyone no what the update rate is for the motor outputs on the zoom. I was looking at ESC's and saw some of them have high update rates instead of the typical 50hz. I did not realize that they had different rates available. I dont want to get an ESC with a non compatible refresh rate. The one I am looking at is 250hz.

I got the quadrino rev1C or something. It's been 1 year+ i'm trying to tune that baro. The best was +/- 1m.

I enjoy my quadrino FC, strong and reliable but i hate its baro and mag.

If i connect the battery when my quad is upside down, taking off goes straight to a death flip. This doesn't happen with my others FC.

The Quadrino is now using a better baro it is the MS5611 chip.
I bet you can get you baro upgraded for a small fee!

Wow, that is 2.5mS vs 20mS. Do the new transmitters put out 400 Hz? I have a dx6. I wonder what the refresh rate of the gyros, and acc is. The new gps is only 20hz right. I'm not trying to bore anyone to death just curious.

That reminds me, I'be been gone for awhile, what's the status of Colins GPS module?

I am in line to get one , just like all those that Pre-Ordered one.
Yes, I have 6 Quadrino boards.
I may need two GPS's, but I have 4 other projects needing cash input!

1: antenna tracker and Diversity setup.
2: New monster motor for my 54" stryker!
3: 800 mm Spyder quad
4: Twin 90mm 58" A-10 WartHog!
After those I will have two maybe 3 GPS units in my hangar!
