Where did you get that case for the GoPro? That would come in handy....

I've been trying to find an answer on here but I haven't seen it yet so I ask you all,

Is there any way you can use a OrangeRX Satellite Rx with this board?

Depends what you are asking, the Orange RX will work fine as a receiver for the Crius.

If you mean the satellite Rx on it's own directly into the board, then I doubt it (plus DSM2 does not typically support diversity unless you have an Rx AND a Satellite).

Honestly if you want a one wire solution you are better off using PPMSUM and suitable system e.g FrSky

Next step is to play around with the ALT PI and VEL PD to reduce the drift (about +-2m at the moment in windy conditions).
If you change to this version, you must recalibrate the ACC! I had to power cycle after that. I didn't understand this, but even in acro mode the copter was not stable at all, after power off/on it was ok.

Disclaimer: Use this version at own risk.

Alrighty, just tested this firmware. First thing I noticed is that there is no idle motor speed or minimum speed, or maybe I just uncommented the wrong thing. Almost crashed because of that, I wanted to descend but the motors just shut off and the thing fell like a rock, thankfully the ACC was on at the time, I gave almost full throttle and it stabilized quickly. So yeah, that was exciting!

Now, it feels more stable, the ACC is behaving better I think but I need to record some footage later to see if there's any wobble left. Also, the BARO works! It really works! Sure, +-1m or so, but it stays in the air and I didn't have to do anything. Brilliant!

Uh oh, problem. Using your firmware, the minthrottle is set to 1300. I used this in the previous firmware but it seems too high on this one since it wobbles a bit on the ground.

Here is the major issue tho, as soon as you throttle down and approach or get to that throttle value the ACC is instantly disabled and you have to QUICKLY throttle back up again or you'll crash within seconds. I almost lost the quad earlier today because going too low makes it disable the ACC, so I had a hard time bringing it down. Why is it doing this?!

Nevermind, solved it. Re-calibrated everything and also turned down the minthrottle to 1200. Enough to keep the motors going but not high enough to make descents difficult.

How do I edit this part of the code for the Lite board? I tried enabling the first line for ACC and then switched Y and -X ... but that didn't work

Edit: I think I figured it out. I had to edit it in Def... not the Config.

will test fly tomorrow

Another FPV flight using this board. Still wobbles a bit with the ACC on. I gotta try to fly without it someday because it's probably not meant to be on during fast forward flight like this.

Yes, I have broken down and bought a wii se board from GLB....Yes I am totaly new to this system.... Have board running with ftdi, and audrino 2.3, wii 1.9 gui......Question 1. is the copter heading in the gui supposed to move around as you tilt and raise the board, or is it supposed to stay pointing north....(mag is off) Question 2. I would like to mount this board pointing forward with one of the corners like a kk board, I have seen something about this somewhere but cannot find it anymore......

board is as it came in quad X mode, board and ftd only connected to xp computer at this time..

I have read and searced this thread, wii thread and forum, and a lot of other links already...

Help please..

Yes the GUI is suppose to show the board moving around, and the board should show a compass heading of where its pointed, regardless of the magometer being on or off.
Not sure about pointing the board corner to front. Just mount it how it should go for your quad config'.
Keep at it. For a newbie at Multiwii its quite daunting, i know I am about a week ahead of you being I got mine last week. Read up, study. Lots of info out there, nothing that is great for beginners really. I am still a bit confused on some of the setting, but once this rain and wind goes away I'll be out again having another go. Mine flys great with no sensors on. So not hard to tweak up once you get a feel for the PIDs.
The beginners guide by ATX_Heli is about the best guide I have found so far.

Hi soupbones, Thanks for the comeback, I guess I didn't make myself clear...
The board continues to point north and the qui quad yaws around.......

As far as the mounting goes, because of the foldling frame I want to use, it will be difficult to mount this board square.....I will have to make a stand off adapter and add hight to the copter that I would rather not do....I Know that it can be changed , I just can't find the way to do it.

I am not new to multi rotors, just wii.

Thanks again..

The Crius board has an arrow on it that should be pointed forward, it won't fly well if you don't point the arrow forward, so you can't have the corner pointing forwards like you want to. That shouldn't be an issue unless you use the mounting holes. It's better to use a few pieces of double sided tape stacked up, or anti vibration PU gel to mount the board, and not use the mounting holes.
