Do i need a transistor or something between pin 33 and the leds?

thx again
I'm moving from Crius SE to Crius AIO Pro, and still trying to find were to connect things. Can you help me check if this ir correct?:

- Buzzer connects to pin 32 (with 1kohm resistor) (identified has CamPitch on this board) (needs external driver. right?)

- Led (Lipo status): connects to pin 32 (with 1kohm resistor) (identified has CamPitch on this board)

- Lipo voltage sense: connects to pin A3 from A0~A5 plug

- Led Flasher: with this quoted procedure (port C4) connects to pin 33 (with 1kohm resistor or transistor if more then 1 led) (identified has CamRoll on this board)

- Led landing lights: By default uses port C0 witch is digital pin 37... where is that? what to use?

I thought that Pin 32 and 33 were inputs from radio Rx to assign 2 channels to control cam pitch and roll, that will override stabilization movements. Is this correct?
If it is I want to use this feature. In this case what pins should I use for led flash and led lipo/buzzer?

Pin 34 and 35 that are in the middle of the board are usable?

Get some NPN transistor (0.5A of collector current or better) add 1kohm resistor series in base, connect second terminal of resistor to pin 33 of AIO, connect emiter to GND and collector to - point of LED's. + LED's to +battery.

How about this one : http://www.drotek.fr/shop/en/90-pa6c-gps-llc.html ?
Does it work with MegapirateNG?
Thanks

No, 'Multiwii MWC FC CN-06 GPS Receiver' is very good & works well with both MegaPirate & MultiWii.
I got 10 satellites in doors yesterday:


Look, there's my house:


The only issue with the 'Multiwii MWC FC CN-06 GPS Receiver' is that the settings reset if its left unpowered for 24-48 hours, so you simply have to set them again, can be little frustrating.

I us this one it's perfect. Works with 10hz without problem. But default config is 1hz 9600bds.

I've changed the default firmware with a 10hz 115200 one to avoid reconfiguring it when the bat is down.

So the on-board battery doesn't keep the settings?

That's strange. So what does the on-board battery do?

So you have to power on the board every 24-48 hours and it keeps all the new settings?

The on board battery keeps the settings for 24-48 hours.

The battery is for 'Hot starts' so you don't have to wait every time for a cold start.

Wasnt that the reason for the EEPROM mod?
To give it a place to store settings in a non-volatile place? like a tiny flash card?

Do You need to power on-off-on to have serial data ?

I agree. I'm using this GPS with MultiWii and it works great...but reconfiguring every time you use it is really frustrating! In order to have it working I need always to switch it on/off two times.

So what are the alternative GPS Units that don't have this issue and still work with both MWC and MPNG?

If a GPS module will work with MWC then it will work with MPNG (only the Bauds are different)!

Not to state the obvious but have you thought about "Extend Board for AIO PRO FC"

This one is crap, it's old and can do 5hz max no 10hz.
