Some of you guys have that MPU gyro on your board.
There is no advantage over the (ITG-3200)except it does two jobs.
The 2.1 firmware is using the chip to it's fullest ablity as 2.2 or so on!
When you turn it on it is doing all it can do NOW!

Finally a set of Images of the New Quadrino GPS, will look like!

20HZ girls and boys.
It is possible to get 12 sats.
Which means you will beable to hold position more positive lock.
Plus you won't have to do the Naza GPS dance!

What exactly does a GPS do and what would you use it for?

Real soon he is waiting for the board manufacture to make them.
Then it will take about a couple days of testing the first bunch.
You may see one being tested in 2 weeks, If everything goes like we all hope.
Then we will see them for sale.

It will mount onto the Quadrino upper left side.
It operates at 20Hz.
I haven't found a faster GPS out there.
what that means faster locks.
Also the way Multiwii is setup you don't have to do the Naza dance.
I don't ever have to do it with a big quad.
Price is TBA. But it will be cheaper than the Naza. That is all I know there. Unless he said something before I got in the room, today!

I can't wait for that GPS to come out, I want one!

Hey Doc I messed with the yaw on my quad and it still flies to the left a little when I push the elevator straight forward. I think it is actually rolling how would one fix that problem. The quad hovers perfectly when in ACC mode. No mag and no baro turned on. Only thing turned on is the ACC.
Drumbum I checked my mixers and stuff and I'm pretty sure they are set right, thanks for the input I could see that really messing something up.

Thanks
Shawn

Hopefully around 100 dollars and that'll be a good investment. the naza gps are retailed at 170 right now.

Shawn,

I'd try recalibrating the throttle range on the ESCs simultaneously again. If you dont have easy access to the throttle signal wires on your ESCs, you can temporarily uncomment the line below in config.h and perform the recalibration while the ESCs are still plugged into the FC:

//#define ESC_CALIB_CANNOT_FLY // uncomment to activate
