Hi all,
I tried on my friends DJI woo kong M controller , and it's much much stable than my multiwii. Just curious how they do it , and really want to get into it and make my multiwii stable as DJI. :-) I think it just the software, or maybe more precise controller hardware ? Anyone of you have technical info regarding wookong controller? Hope multiwii will be as stable as wookong one day, maybe version 3 ?

I will make your multiwii as stable as DJI for $1030.

maybe its a setup or other problem. I dont find the wookong or naza any smoother than the PARIS board using the multiwii code.. I actually find the PARIS board to be better for hacking around. the only reason I use DJI equipment is for its extra features.

Whats the setup / equipment you are using on your multiwii?

FPV at altitude 2100m over the Carpathians mountains from mwc quad. Anyone flew higher than that with a multicopter?

Hi,

Yes, Its expensive, and Multiwii are low cost and its good for my "itchy hand" to tweak around.
I'm currently flying a tricopter using DT750, with homebrew PCB, and another Paris board in my quadcopter for AV with RCtimer. yes, its very stable for flying around , AV results also shows promising. I found some video clips of WooKong doing AV and its too stable to believe.
(for your info, WooKong in Chinese means monkey god, and Naza also a fairy tale's character)

What are you using for all the OSD information? That's really neat having all that info on the screen.

I flew at over 2400m last year with one multiwii quad at Moncenisio, France (starting point was 2100m), this is just one of the "watchable" recorded video of that day:
Moncenisio - 17 Aprile 2011 (8 min 49 sec)


Anyway i Usually fly high, a few days ago I flew at over 2500m at Bardonecchia (TO- italy) with a small hexa i carried skying, and this summer I plan to fly at Monviso, stating point at 3800m.

I will have to give that a try. Do you tilt two motors on opposite sides of the quad, or do you tilt one CW motor and one CCW motor?
I rotate all motors, if the prop turns clockwise rotate the motor clockwise, if the prop turns counterclockwise rotate the motor counterclockwise. If you get it reversed then yaw doesn't work. I set yaw gain at .60. I have seen a configeration with "V" tail where only two motors are rotated. Yaw control is more crisp with the motors set at an angle. There may be a formula or serious science to it but I find it fun to play with.

Eagletree on that (i have the antenna tracker next to me), now i use it on planes and prefer to use dragon osd on my multiwii/arducopter and epi osd on mk.
I fly also for work (aerial shooting for photographers or university/research center) with large platforms, but that time i was just flying for fun, exploring unknown places or searching for trails I will hike or reach with my bike in the summer (Moncenisio is a great place with a lot of old fortifications and battle cannons from WWII). I do that with helis too (funnier to pilot in open spaces) and large gliders... but not so much time lately...
