Look what showed up on my doorstep! Hurray, Thanks, Paul! I like the back of the Flyduino, Argh!!! Nice Pirate. Blindflight and Modesigner look for a PM from me regarding the headers. They also arrived today. I need you to let me know what kind and how many of each you will need. Paul, don't worry about the headers, they are on me. I am so excited and the weekend is so close. I got the BOB for my GPS so my Saturday may be very busy.

Today on my doorstep

Put it in the waiting Quad with a FreeIMU sensor board.
Together a nice small combination.

The Flyduino board looks great and has al the needed pins even to get
a duodec in the air. An Atmega 1280 on-board makes it a grow platform.

The MK spaced holes make it a snap in to existing frames so the first flights are made and hopefully this weekend with a video.

Next I will try to hook up a GPS.

You did a great job Paul!!

Great to hear, thanks guys.
I think Modesigner and Blindflight will need about 50 Male headers plus the female ones in the paket they should be good.
Let me know about the costs you have, will paypal asap.

Of course!

But let me make one for you board specific, so it looks better then the Seeeduino diagram I'll try to draw it as on the boards layout.

Ok, I didn't go through the whole thread to find everything out.
So, a few questions in the mean time.
Camera roll/pitch, gimball,... pins, I see 44, 45 & 46, which one is A0, A1?
What is pin D37 in the I2c to sensors part?
-Pin 12 goes directly in in the 3.3V voltage regulaqtor for using wii sensors but i plan to use it with the I2C Jussi Board.
but on the picture I see only a 5V mark in the sensor connection part
LCD connects to serial 1, 2 or 3, pins?


But I'm sure we'll get there

Thanks Berkely, Great!

Camera roll/pitch, gimball,... pins, I see 44, 45 & 46, which one is A0, A1?

Its prelimary, its not in the code right now, but it will be a good option for hard or soft pwm.


What is pin D37 in the I2c to sensors part?
It the new D12, its meant as an enable pin as the D12 was before.
But it makes sense to change it to D37, cause we have now D12 free, which is also a PWM out.
Its ment to be connected to the enable pin of jussis imu, or used for WMPīs who needs the reset (didnt had one who needs it).

-Pin 12 goes directly in in the 3.3V voltage regulaqtor for using wii sensors but i plan to use it with the I2C Jussi Board.
but on the picture I see only a 5V mark in the sensor connection part

Its now only the D37 coming directly from CPU without 3.3V regulator in between. Its now 5V, but someone needs 3.3V he take it from the "power" row.


LCD connects to serial 1, 2 or 3, pins?

Its up to the coders, i too k a JST plug for serial one, which can be a good GPS connector serial 2 and 3 are on pinheaders, so for the flyduino its better to use them instead for LCD.

The BEC Powering over ISP Header 5V pin otion is optional, you then dont need to connect your lipo directly to the IN Pin if you use that.

Your diagrams really looking good and helped me and ,i think i am right here, many others a lot in the past, i am really happy to see my Flyduino in the diagrams.
Again many thanks.

Forgot to mention A0 and A1 are on the right side marked as analog ins in my JPEG above

parts list?

Would someone list the parts i need besides this board that i need to put one of these together?

I've been flying helis but these look way too cool to stay away from.

thanks!

Thanks

I've got a handle on everything except:

Sensor(s), f.e. FFIMU or BMP020 with WMP+

can you give part numbers and places where i can get these components?

I'm still not sure how sensors and control boards interconnect or about the programming needed.

i'm good with motors, esc's, batteries, receivers and transmitters.

This page is very very helpfull for beginners

A BMA 020 is selled by Kinderkram for very cheap.
The WMP+ you can get in your next Toysīrīus.
You also need a FTDI to program, but there are lots of info here in this forum.
Please see also www.multiwii.com
And the famous Multiwii Thread.
