i love the color

Well done warthox (and Paul)
By the way: what kind of tape do you use for GYRO mounting (WM+)? I'm using the microbeast pads from freakware and would like to have a cheaper alternative.

It's a very clean built.
I'm thinking about this center plate for my next proto.
I notice you didn't use the power distribution directly on the PCB.
Is there a reason for this ?

I think you could save a little bit the build time by avoiding one hole under the motor axis, and cut instead the unused part of the axis with a dremel. (and save something like 5g )

It's possible with Multiwii_1.7 or Multiwii_1.8 stabilize the CAM PITCH and CAM ROLL and at same time control the CAM Pitch or Roll with a potentiometer on my TX for find a correct angle of view?

Hi,

yes, it's possible with V1.8. You need to uncomment the SERVO_TILT which is in config.h.

change:
Code:
/* The following lines apply only for a pitch/roll tilt stabilization system
   On promini board, it is not compatible with config with 6 motors or more
   Uncomment the first line to activate it */
//#define SERVO_TILT
..
to:
Code:
/* The following lines apply only for a pitch/roll tilt stabilization system
   On promini board, it is not compatible with config with 6 motors or more
   Uncomment the first line to activate it */
#define SERVO_TILT
..
Be shure you have enough channels on your TX!

Hi, I'm using the flyduino warthox board and I don't get any reading from the wmp and nunchuk. Maybe I wired it wrong. Can someone help me please?
Infos:
MultiWii_1.8 code with changed flight mode -> HEX6X
No others changes.

on the pics from warthox you should be able to see how it should be.
Your WMP looks correct, you may should try with the WMP only first and its may a good idea to connect your acc directly to the I2C line as its possible now.

I did connect the WMP first and after no readings I added the nunchuk. I double checked the wires and checked the connection of the wires from the WMP to the board.
