Help!
need arduino info for flashing this mwc board...PLEASE HELP...

here is the mwc fc board i have in an x copter

http://www.goodluckbuy.com/mwc-multi...opter-red.html

i have updated it to 2.0

problem is in arduino 1.0 when selecting the board i have no clue which one to select. it has the atmega 328 and thats all i can tell you. i have been selecting the arduino pro or pro mini 5v 16 hz atmega 328
and in the config h selection i have been selection var board types. my quad is sooo un stable. i cant get it to hover good at all.

im sure it just because i dont know what board i have or selecting the wrong board. all i know is i have the atmega 328 chip and its red and says multiwii 2012 on the bottom. looks identical to the crius mwc se kinda but red.

can someone shed some light on what board i need to select please

If you have trouble with sensor orientation go back and try it as a FFIMUv2 module and see if it is preset for you.

looking at the board you have, that is pretty much identical to mine, which I got off of ebay. the ftdi is the same, so what I mentioned should work. Also,, I notice you have an X525 frame, which is also the exact frame I have, so so I have the 'D' values, for pitch/roll @ 47,
the 'P' values, @ 2.6 & 3.1, the 'I' values @ 3.5 for both.
