if i get (Nano version 3) + (USB to Mini-USB) cable
only these 2 are enough for me. what about Nintendo & Nunchuck ?

i am confused, can you clarify my doubt.
You choose the hard way!
If you get arduino nano vers.3 and the usb cable,you have to buy also the stabilization units like this:
http://hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store...tion_Plus.html
and this:
http://hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store...i_Nunchuk.html
REMEMBER,this 2 items,you have to open it and solder wires to connect to the ARDUINO 3 board!!!!IT'S A DIY STUFF!!!!
@RcVertt,is not the simple way to buy one MWC LITE SE,v1,board instead of arduino 3 and wii+ and nchuk!?
Hope is help
If you had read the post above,leadfeather told you ,what is FTDI and how and who!?
Ftdi,is the programmer to buy by you,ONLY if you buy ARDUINO PRO MINI 5V!!!
If you buy arduino nano v3,is no need for FTDI ,because in the board,have botloader and the usb connector!!
Cheers

Yes. Too many of the same questions asked over and over again

If (MWC Lite SE, v1) has a 328p chip and has pins D2, D4, D5, D6, D7, D10, D11, A0, A1,A2 available then it should work. It will also need a mini-USB plug on the board. He will never figure out how to use a separate FTDI programmer in time. I think it also can't have the Uno bootloader on it. This is if he wants to use the code I posted.

So if that board has all that stuff on it then all he should need is a USB to Mini-USB cable.

now i got two options
1) got direct arduino board supported for multiwii software (but takes time it may be a more than a week) only code is to be changed in this model.

2) as u said to buy different things nd club them into one.

when i asked the shop keeper he said that the arduino board has usb itself (some version 8 )
if i get this then i need only nchuck, am i right ?

.................................................. ..............................................

to be frank you guy's made me confuse alot. pardon me for being confused.

the shopkeeper asked me to send the list that i need, so one of you send me the proper things i need so that (if though i m not aware) he might know regarding it

now i am sending the following things, if i am wrong correct me

1) arduino board nano version 3 or (he said he have a usb in built arduino board)
2) wii motion plus (http://hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store...tion_Plus.html)

3) wii nchuck (http://hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store...i_Nunchuk.html)

i hope these are the three things i need.

Jyothi,

It is time to change direction. If you have a passion for VTOL, you have the rest of your life to figure it out. For now, since you are essentially out of time, you need to focus on getting the best grade you can for this project. That means you need to gather as much hard numerical data as possible. Thrust, vs. Power, vs. weight, etc. Put together some nice graphs. Analyze why it did't fly. Develop some free body diagrams to show thrust vectors, CG location, etc. Describe the details of the control modes, and do the math to determine maximum control forces in pitch, roll and yaw. Write up a good report, be humble about your failure, and learn as much as you can from it. You ask a lot of questions, and that is fine, but a lot of the answers are right in front of you.You just need to really think about what your experiences are trying to teach you.

Good luck.

Sorry about the confusion. Language barrier makes it difficult.

To use my code, here is list for shopkeeper...

1) Arduino Nano Version 3.
2) Nintendo Wii Motion Plus
3) Nintendo Wii Nunchuck
4) USB to Mini USB cable.

But as Ran D. said, you are out of time. It takes a month to learn MultiWii for custom projects.
As Ran D. said, write up about why it needs gyro and accel stabilization. Write up the changes you made in order to get it to fly forward. Write up what changes you would make to a future build.

sure we do as u said. we will continue after our colz also.(by now we got passion over RC's )

but at present i have time till march 10 2013, so i wanna work very hard to reach the success. if this time is really enough for me. if i keep 100% work effort.

and manual for flashing the micro chip ": down further on the page it has links to walk thru videos .... probably help a lot

http://pdfdownloadfree.net/?pdfurl=1...19fk0dnS2oiw6g




Here is a website for hook up of KK boards ..

and another with a video

another
http://www.toymall99.com/kk-multicop...exacopter.html

here is a forum with a walk thru vid .. it said it was v5.5 but don't look like it ... but might learn something from them .
