I don't know what the first piece of data represents. It increases with each card write. Anyone know?

Timestamp or cycle count?

Yes, first field is milliseconds since the unit powered on. If you are getting stuttering on the lights then your sd card is probably not fast enough. Stick with the good brands like Lexar and SanDisk. They implement the sd card specs properly. There may be other good brands too. Surf the net for the best sd cards for write speed, that's what matters. The SanDisk I have writes the data to disk in 12milliseconds worst case - and the write occurs every 5 secs like you say. 12ms is way to small to notice.

Need help with PID and snsors

I'm new to quads, I just finished my 650 next level quad with quadrino zoom v2 with 2.1 firmware. I had a successful hover but I need help setting the PID rates and I need help with the sensors. First, How do you change the PID rates, do you change them in the config. program or somewhere else, also can you have different rates for different switch positions. Finally what sensor should I have on in any given switch position. I do have the sensors on a three position switch.

The SD card I got is a 4g SanDisk. I remembered that this was discussed on the webex last sunday and SanDisk and Lexar were mentioned as fast units. I'll make a small video tomorrow showing the light sequence when it's writing...

MultiWii dev version r1311 has lot of feature updated.:
- baro Alt from mahowik (new functions to come, noted)
- baro calibration and some baro mods from Sebbi
- new task scheduler for a better computation time repartition
- better Ublox code detection
- HORIZON mode (mix between ACRO & ANGLE)
- ANGLE mode is the old LEVEL mode
- every UART for everything on MEGA
- cool GUI enhancement from magnetron
- spektrum bind button for spektrum receiver (Danal)
- telemetry cosmetic
- bug correction for servos on MEGA
- failsafe is more robust

- variometer
- mag gain calibration improvement for HMC5883L
- GPS MKT binary parser
- GPS forward predictive filter


//#define QUADRINO // full FC board 9DOF+baro board from witespy with BMP085 baro <- confirmed by Alex
//#define QUADRINO_ZOOM // full FC board 9DOF+baro board from witespy second edition
//#define QUADRINO_ZOOM_MS// full FC board 9DOF+baro board from witespy second edition <- confirmed by Alex

Board orientation shift ************************/
/* If you have frame designed only for + mode and you cannot rotate FC phisycally for flying in X mode (or vice versa)
you can use one of of this options for virtual sensors rotation by 45 deegres, then set type of multicopter according to flight mode.
Check motors order and directions of motors rotation for matching with new front point! Uncomment only one option! */

//#define SENSORS_TILT_45DEG_RIGHT // rotate the FRONT 45 degres clockwise
//#define SENSORS_TILT_45DEG_LEFT // rotate the FRONT 45 degres counterclockwise

//#define NMEA
//#define UBLOX
//#define MTK_BINARY16
//#define MTK_BINARY19
//#define INIT_MTK_GPS // initialize MTK GPS for using selected speed, 5Hz update rate and GGA & RMC sentence or binary settings

//#define GPS_PROMINI_SERIAL 57600 // Will Autosense if GPS is connected when ardu boots

anyone had tried yet?

haha, me too! This one i like most:
Assisted AcroTrainer **********
/* Train Acro with auto recovery. Value set the point where ANGLE_MODE takes over.
Remember to activate ANGLE_MODE first!...
A Value on 200 will give a very distinct transfer */
#define ACROTRAINER_MODE 200 //

"Amazing to watch a quad come tumbling down with minimum throttle, and then level itself automatically, just before hitting the ground"


Bledi has a video on Acrotrainer:
Maiden Multwii Acrro Trainer Mode (0 min 45 sec)


Use this and feel lilke Warthox for a while.
