I would think someone would make a killing if they could build a true Plug-N-Play solution that was stable with altitude/position and hold or auto level.
true bruv but thats my scatty brain lol i am doing two things here at the minute

1/ shopping for plug n play boards (so far bought a pipo imu and 2 kk black boards)

2/ having a go at knocking up my own flight controller slowly while i wait for these new boards to arrive

once i have a good selection working on my latest quad in the videos (925kv) i will try them all on 600kv motors and see what is most stable at low kv once ive sorted that i will start building a new quad and tri with dt700 kv motors and be a happy chappy

n3m1s1s. I was messaging you about this board. Yes It is shipping today.

The flyduino is different. It is not a Full Flight controller.

Return that rubbish

GOOD STUFF my dilemma right now is this, im all spent out for the next few weeks and not sure i can raise the money in time to still get in on the 1st batch definitely want one though

Sell all your other projects (I know you have done alot of them :P) and you could afford an MK platform

But yeah, I guess we are far away from both rtf/plug-n-play and the 100 usd. But the wobble/vibration would be history, because you have so many parameters to tune, that (almost) no matter what config you throw at it, you'll get it to fly as it should

Hey Nem.

Seems from this picture:



You have the wm+ plugged in correctly (if white is +ve, black is GND, green is SDA and blue is SCL)

Motors into Digital 3, 9, 10 and 11, and RX into 2,4,5,6,7 (see picture below).



Remember to only plug in power from 1 of the ESC becs ... i think people pull the red wire out of the esc plug by pulling the little plastic clip forward, then they tape/shrink wrap it to the cable.

GVS on the board marks the Ground, VCC (5v) and Signal pins.

Although I'm not actually sure if you can put power from one of the ESCs directly into VCC? Is there a voltage regulator on the Arudino 2009? Not sure how it all works. Can someone with more knowledge then me chip in?

Ben.

Why do you call the Flyduino "rubbish"?
Can yours fly others than tri or quads? Have a flight video? What's the price?

Hi Nem.

No Probs



The motors connect the same for both X and +. Just the arrangement differs like this :

+ :



x :



You can see all the configurations here :

http://www.multiwii.com/?page_id=103

From looking at other peoples Ardunio 2009 setups I think you have to put the power from your ESC bec into the 5v and GND pins right next to where I've marked "WM+ GND" on the sensor shield picture above

This is all you have to wire up yourself.


The Flyduino is modular and will allow future sensor upgrades and of course the CPU is more capable regarding the ins and outs.
The Flyduino is a pretty well tested unit.

A very simple and nice and very cheap build (WMP only) with the very stiff Flyduspider frame.
