When you know what your doing.

I take a little offense to that statement. I have done my homework reading this entire thread, the Quadrino manual, MW.com, various build threads, as well as emails back and forth with the Quadrino designer and distributer, and found no answer to these problems. I am an engineer and build rockets for a living so I'm not an idiot. I'm not on here asking newb questions like how to arm it and such. I have had numerous issues, that have no easy solution.

I realize that the problem with writing a manual is that there are so many variables (Tx, Rx, escs, motors, etc.) and each setup is unique. Also, the software changes so frequently that the manual would soon be obsolete. But, if this was my product, I would've at least covered the basics and included links to all the various places to find info.

Having said that, talking from my experience, this board has too many unexplained issues that wouldn't be in the manual even if there was one. So, I wouldn't recommend it.

Again .. English is not my language so don't be offended by my words.

I mean when you know what you need to do. It's easy.

Another thing is that Multiwii is not a product and is not sell anywhere.

On another note.. here is the new GUI
Can't wait to try it tonight..

I only install it and open it.
don't have a board to plug right now

This is a 3rd party app i think.

You can choose between 1.9 and the latest DEV version inside the app

No, I just use the USB port. It opens, but crashes randomly after clicking start. I can sometimes click "read" and then it will crash. Nothing I do gets it to work. And I am an IT technician by trade.

I installed it on a virtual PC running XP, and it works flawlessly.

Can't wait to try the new GUI, looks pretty slick. I'm at work now, though, so I can't do anything but look at it.

Ok .. just a try.
Take a look at your different com port in the device manager also.
Did you try to run it as administrator by clicking right on the .exe ?
