I use a Flydusense bob with WMP and Bma020 and Flyduino on one of my Quads and it is perfect(touch wood) and its on top of a flydupower bob and i get no magnetic induction problems, so i dont think its that.
I think there's an invisible alien with a laser zapping it, cant think of any other cause.
One thing its doing though is speeding up my reaction times as i can save it most times now.

Hi Ray, hi M4d D,

ich habe das selbe Problem mit meinem Spider. Am Anfang sauber und stabil, nach einem leichten Absturz und einem Reglerdefekt hatte ich dann auch dieses Problem.
Ich dachte es liegt an dem anderen Regler den ich Ersatzweise eingesetzt habe, es war jetzt ein 10Amp Typ, Original Keda 12A. Nach mehreren Flips nach vorn und etlichen kaputten Props habe ich den Spider auseinander gelegt und bin dabei ihn neu aufzubauen, mit 6 neuen Premium 18A ESC. Ich hoffe dann ist das Problem beseitigt, wenn nicht tippe ich auch stark auf das FFIMU. Verwende Flyduino/FFIMU1.22L.
Bin auch für jede Idee offen, wie man das noch vor dem Erstflug testen kann.

Hi Ray, hi M4D D

I have the same problem with my Spider. At the beginning of clean and stable, after a slight fall and then I had a controller failure that problem.
I thought it is on the other controller I've used a substitute, it was now a 10amp type, original Keda 12A. After several flips forward and a number of broken props I have put the Spider apart and am going to rebuild it, with six new premium 18A ESC. I hope then the problem is fixed, not when I type too much on the FFIMU. Use Flyduino/FFIMU1.22L.
I'm also open to any idea, as one can still test before the first flight.
greetings, Paul (hubibubi)

My question is now,

I would like to change the plattform from warthox to flyduino. Can i use my sensors (BMP085 and my HMC5843) on the flydusense LLC board or have i buy some IMU?

some Connection diagrams available for that ?

many thnx.....

Of course you can use it.
Technically its the same, pro and mega both works the same way, you can take your sensor arangement as it is and put it on the i2c line of the flyduino, make the same settings (i guess pullups of) and it should work fine.
SDA and SCL are the both datalines, power and gnd is needed of course too, 3.3V is avaiabale on the flyduino.
Connect all I2C sensors in parallel.

someone in the fpv community forum told me that he had a similar problem concerning the acc and he said he was able to solve it by reseting the board , i have no clue if it works but trying wont hurt

this sounds a bit strange, a simple new power on off should cause the same.
He may ment something different.
But anyway, on the board are 2 RST pins, those are the reset pins, simply short them for short, then you have caused a reset, its almost never needed as the FTDI we use does a autoreset.
He may ment the D12 or in our case the D37 pin, this pin causes a reset when the I2C freezes, but Alex told its not really usable for a IMU.
But....try it wont hurt, 5V comming out of it, i think this pin is useless, but anyway.

does that mean i should wait for another day or two ? i want the new warthox board and i really dont want to risk not getting two

will you send it 2 times when i order the bma or would you like me to do two orders , i mean postage isnt that expensive and if you like just send a letter for the two boards ( since thats much cheaper than a big package )

Me and Jussi are working on a big batch of FreeIMU v0.3.5_MS which should be ready to fly in about 2 weeks..

I just wanted to have a look at the schematics to see the ATMEGA to board pin correspondence.

Or you change your girlfriend - your choice!

But I rather suggest to keep her. Not many girlz are interested in that hobby.
