Ken, you say this only happens after at lest 3 minutes of flight? I think you just have one ESC with the cutoff voltage a little higher than the others.

Test it on the ground with props off and a battery discharged half way.

By the way, thanks DoctorAudio for your troubleshooting help. Keep in mind that video was edited from two days of flying. Both times the quad flew for 3 minutes or so before crashing. If it were minthrottle or other settings, would it fly well at all?

Would have posted the entire second day flying video, but thought it was too long and boring...but if you watch it you can see its flying fine.
Ken:
Thank you for not letting me watch 10 mins of you flying.
FPV can get very boring.

Check those setting for sure.
Any one using a Multiwii, having issues please check all you settings.

I have said this before that on the [Alt], less is more and it being to high will cause your multirotor to fall from the sky.
If your PIDS are to high, death wobble will come into play almost every time.

Ken I noticed in your video when you would push nose down and go into forward flight you tail kicks to one side.
That has much to do with the PID's you have on your YAW!

Oh yeah, you need to update your firmware to 2.0 if your using all those things at once you will see a big difference how she flys.

When updating from 1.9 to 2.0 using Arduino 1.0, I got these three messages.

"MultiWii_2_0.cpp: In function 'void loop()':
MultiWii_2_0:614: error: 'getEstimatedAltitude' was not declared in this scope
MultiWii_2_0:629: error: 'computeIM

Use Arduino 1.0 for multiwii 2.0

Thank you for that info. I had selected this one as directed from the Flyingeinstein.com tutorial. Are you certain that the one you have selected Dialfonzo is the correct board for Quadrino Zoom from FlyingEinstein?

Multiwii controller based on the Pro Mini (Like the Quadrino) are normaly flashed with the one i pointed. Sometime they are flashed with "Uno" bootloader also.

You can't break anything by trying that.
My Quadrino is flashed with ProMini and all the Quadrino i see are.

Ok will try that. Where do you download your code from? I got another orange error message saying something about INO not defined...

Thanks. Once again, the code I downloaded to flash was from the Flyingeinstein site. However, when trying to compile the einstein code, I got the above messages per the screenshots.

However, when using the link from Dialfonzo, the code compiled and uploaded without any errors. Miracle!

Thanks for all your help. Now that I've done this, maybe I'll use the ninth life of this Quadrino board and put it on my old Quad #1. Has been a good flier with FY90Q, lets see what happens when I replace it with the quadrino.

Thanks for all the help Doc and Dialfonzo.
