Supposedly it's because of temperature changes...

Mems gyros are alot better but most boards don't use them.
I'm using the blue card from kkmulticopter...
it seems to me like I have to trim if I land in a slope, I'll test this in next flight!

Hey Christian,

I sent you a PM with what your program is telling me and the contents of the log file from when I try to flash my KK blue board as you asked me to.

Just wondering if when I plug my programmer in are both lights supposed to light up as I don't remember if they did the first time I flashed my board.
They are both lighting up when plugged into the usb.

Thanks,
Randy

Hello.
I have a new problem.
Pitch gyro reaction is very low. I mean when i tilt quad to forward reaction is very quick, but when i tilt quad to right or left(in + mode) i didnt hear motor speed up(if i manually hard move a pitch gyro then i hear motor speed up). All pots in a central position. What is this?

I didnt glue gyro yet, so i can move it in their direction.

Here's the settings for my quad. It might help someone else like me who does this for the first time...

Settings on the Spektrum DX6i:
D/R&Expo:
All INH

Travel Adjust:
Thro: 125%
Aile: 50%
Elev: 50%
Rudd: 100%

Sub trim:
all 0

Mix 1 & Mix 2:
INH

Differential:
Inhibit

Model Type:
Acro

Reverse:
Thro-N
Aile-R
Elev-R
Rudd-R

Thro Cut
Inh

Wing tail mix
Inh for all

D/R combi
Inh


I've Turnigy Plush 25A ESC and I've programmed them like this:
Brake: off
Battery type: NiMH
Cutoff mode: Reduce power
Cutoff threshold: Low
Startup mode: Normal
Timing: Low

Then I had to reverse the pitch gyro on the KK board.

Currently it is in + configuration (more or less because I don't know yet how to put it in X-config).
Motor 1 is front. Motor 2 is left. Motor 3 is right and motor 4 is back if seen from above.
