Wow! I live real close to Eunice, La.. So there are more Cajun Quad flyers than I thought.

I have a GPS working on my Zoom's I2C using the RC timer Ublox and I2c proc. card.

Yep!
Yep , my oldest daughter was giving us a hard time in her teens.
She said I want to go live with grandpa in Eunice. LOL.
I fell out of my chair. Got her a ticket and she wanted to come home like a day later.
Came back saying I tricked her! ROFLMAO!

Sad thing is I lost all the langauges, I spoke when was a kid.
I could have been a court translator.

For a teenage girl from Oregon, the culture shock must have been overwhelming! Moving to the grand parents in S. Louisiana... It must have appeared to her that you shipped her to some strange 3rd world country... Nice work!

I'm originally from Canada and ended up in New Iberia LA. Now that was culture shock! Great folks though and "The Blue Gator" had the coldest beer in the world there....

Topics for Webex?

WEBEX! WEBEX!

We are going to do this tomorrow guys and girls.
I am looking for topics to discuss.
So any one with setup problems we will work on them.
We would also like to take on a topic.
Last week Colin discussed:
The setup of the witespy OLED screen and also how it hook up a GPS to your Quadrino FC.
If you guys are interested in a product linking to a quadrino and how to do it.
We need to know up front so we can prepare.

Thank you for your time and effort.
I would like to extend a thank you from Colin on being great customers!

Below is the info on how and where to go to setup WEBex!


FlyingEinstein will be hosting a webex class each Sunday @ 3PM EST for an introduction to wiring the Quadrino and initial installation and configuration of the MultiWii Configuration software. This is a group discussion and a Question and Answer period will follow and asking questions during the webex is also encouraged. If you are having difficulties with setting up the Quadrino this is your chance to get your questions answered and your quad flying.

This class is offered through Cisco WebEx and supports up to 50 attendees at a time. To join the meeting goto flyingeinstein.webex.com between 2:45 PM and 3:00PM EST. The meeting will open at 2:45PM but will not begin until 3PM.

Password is always "quad"
Go to flyingeinstein.webex.com

Hey Guys,
Still trying to get my PID loops configured. I get Oscillation with the current configuration. The quad actually oscillates in a circle pattern. If I reduce the P values for roll and pitch the oscillation goes away but the copter starts to drift and when I compensate with stick input it freaks out and wants to flip.Can anyone post a pick of their configuration page. This quadrino Zoom 2.1
Name: Roll Pitch Oscillation.jpg
