So does anyone actually know if the new sensors offer a dramatic improvement over the old ones? Or is everyone just making guesses at this point?
Is MPU6050 6 axis gyro/accel with Motion Processing Unit better than ITG3205 3-axis MEMS and BMA180?
Is HMC5883L 3-axis digital magnetometer Better than HMC5883L 3-axis digital magnetometer?
Is MS5611-01BA01 highprecision altimeter Better than BMP085 digital pressure sensor?
Tried looking up comparisons, but couldn't find much.
Also does anyone know which would be less sensitive to vibration?
I've been perfectly happy so far with my original Crius SE board. I was just about to buy the new smaller 1.0 version for my next aircraft, but then saw this one, and trying to figure out if its worth the extra $20. I also hope to use both bluetooth and GPS at some point, not sure if this board makes it any easier compared to the 1.0 version (which has I2c headers).

for the rest i think it s almost the same thing(atmega of this version is better too)

the mpu6050 has a sensor fusion processor inside. it processes the readings from the acc and gyro axes and gives out data which can easily be used to determine the correction amount required.
i dont know if the multiwii code actually uses this feature or just reads raw gyro and acc data directly.. but its worth integrating this into the code in the future

I just got my AIO board and can tell u some things:
The altimeter is super accurate, as i plug it to the pc, i can see difference on the graph when i lift it up and down even only 5-10 cm!! this is AWESOM!
Mine also came with MWii 2.0 and worked immediately with the Config tool. (win7)
However i cannot open the 64bit version of the tool although i use 64bit :S only 32bit woked.
Till now i only tested it with the Config tool, but this schows that all sensors are working fine and inputs as well.
this is a MUST BUY for everyone who does multicopter!

I have a 64bit & could only open the 32bit config tool as well
I've had mine working on MultiWii 2.0 & yesterday installed MegaPirate (thanks to a little help from a friend) which is working great & I especially like the ArduPilot GUI

can you upload a manual for wiring and ports?
also, what are the recommended BT/Sonar/GPS module?
I'm looking for a better board with several required function... i might get this one if it fits..

Thats what i know so far:
starting on ext.power clockwise:
Externd Power = if you dont power it by the BEC from the ESC
cam pitch = input from RX
cam roll = same
also near AUX4 ther are some missing pins or soldering points (SPI) can we use them? it so, for what?
aux4= same (aux port 1-4 u can see in the MultiWii config tool on PC)
aux3= same (aux port 1-4 u can see in the MultiWii config tool on PC)
aux2= same (aux port 1-4 u can see in the MultiWii config tool on PC)
aux1= same (aux port 1-4 u can see in the MultiWii config tool on PC)
yaw = input from RX
pitch = input from RX
roll = input from RX
throttle = input from RX
5v = so the RX gets power
gnd= and ground also ^^
6x Motor out 2-8 (where do i put which motor????)
trigger 9 = to trigger the cam if needed
echo 10 = optional echo ultrasonic sensor (??)
2x Motor out 11, 12 (where do i put which motor????)
5v bridge, jumper (if you power it by the BEC from the ESC this must be closes)
pitch 44 = for the CAM Gimbal system
roll 45 = for the CAM Gimbal system
trigger 46 = another trigger WHY?
(slc, sda, 5v, gnd) = this is the I2C port for expandings like gps
(gnd, gnd, 5v, rx0, tx0, dtr) S0/FTDI = dont know! Pls help
(tx1, rx1, tx2, rx2 tx3, rx3, vcc, gnd) = also dont know! Pls help
(a0-a5) "6 Analog output for extend device" -> means what? what could that device be?
in the description of the board stands: "4 serial ports for debug/Bluetooth Module/OSD/GPS/telemetry" where they?
BE SO FREE AND EDIT THIS SO WE CAN WORK TOGETHER TILL ITS COMPLETE

- you can connect BT to this port.
- Tx1Rx1 is for ppm sum, Tx2Rx2 is for serial GPS, Tx3Rx3 is for serial LCD
- Future expansion
ftdi is built in you dont need it.
Correct me if im wrong.

Motor port for MultiWii: D2/D3/D5/D6/D7/D8/D9/D10
for MegaPirateNG: D2/D3/D5/D6/D7/D8/D11/D12
D9/D10 is sonar sensor port when you use MegaPirateNG firmware
46 is a servo output port which is used for cam shutter
A0~A5 is reserve port,no "output", sorry, that is my mistake.
TX1/RX1 used for PPM SUM receiver or Remzibi's OSD board
TX2/RX2 used for GPS, you can connect any standard NMEA GPS receiver
TX3/RX3 used for telemetry module,like Xbee,3DRadio etc...

I just ordered one of these too.. How is it compare to the bunny
|Jul 06, 2012, 02:04 PM|
So can i connect the so called "Multiwii MWC FC CN-06 GPS Receiver" directly with its 4 cables to (rx3, tx3 vcc, gnd) on the AIO board?
What difference does it make if i connect it via I2C?
