Why didn't they run? A pass???

Anyone generate the necessary code for a Paris v4 board and a hexacopter?

I'm new to Multiwii, and have just been using the ver 1.9 hexa code (non ppm sum) from multiwiicopter.com which is essentially a pnp solution with some minor config.h tweaking for the end user.

I'd love to try out preversion 4, but can't seem to get past some compile errors

thanks

With the hand on the heart, how many of us playing with multirotor have not fly dangerous near people , buildings or cars ?
With dangerous near i mean in range with your full charged battery, i fly in outside my house at a football field and if i would drop control or anything goes wrong with the radio it will travel far away on full throttle with a fly time off 12-18 min.
I don't say dramida is doing right that fly over highways etc but i think allot of us doing theoretically the same thing when we fly dangerous near ( in flytime range) of people, houses or cars.
And sure i have fail safe activated AND TESTED but that can also fail .....

So please stop this arguing and start talk about multiwii that we all love ....

And fly so safe and responsible you can and TEST failsafe .....

by Rules ,Regulations and Laws
Remember Dramida for one of those responsible for the changes.

I tried that actually.

Just wondered if there are changes I have to make to the pre4 in order for it to work properly, other than making changes to the config.h to get it to verify/compile properly.

here's what I'm seeing when I load the .pde and hit verify

exactly.. things can go wrong, that's why we have to be carefull..
It's amazing how people forget the basic RC safety rules. I guess many of us never heard of it..
Clubs normally have their own airfield so we don't have to go and fly in parks where children play for example.. we shouldn't fly in places with people and property and that's a fact.
I'm not against FPV but the fact is that is getting out of control, people are flying too high sometimes and it's just a matter of time till it interferes with real aircraft for example.. there's no way an aircraft can see a model so small and there's the danger of collision with very bad results..
Also most of the people are not insured. I don't think that the club insurance covers damage caused in a FPV flight

Create a 'Safety thread', because this is not the place to express your concerns, whether they're valid or not.

What do you think? Good plan?
you might contact PatrikE over at the multiwii.com forum. Not long ago he was busy updating the old configurator. I think you will have to introduce an automation step, where the configurator grabs the options and choices from the config.h. If you are up to it, make a suggestion how the neccessary info should be put into the cpp comments in the default config.h.

Yes for people who don't like to be in the code

Like I said above, didn't knew there was a web config.h maker So I don't know if I should make a program for it.. Or it should have extra options..

You guys can also request other programs.. Pm me

Don't let that stop you! Different people understand things differently. Some may understand the current web based configurator fine, while others may be confused by it.
If you like creating, create!

Respectfully. while Dramida is posting unsafe videos here
This is exactly the place to post concerns.

I would welcome him not to ...... but he doesn't listen

I agree. It may be not-illegal in Romania, but the videos go all over the world. When they do start trying to outlaw it, anywhere, his will be some of the first they use as evidence.

He would be much better off using a powered glider or something with some glide slope. Not something that will "fall" out of the sky.

So what proportional value for level do you guys have? I have just put it up to 14 as even 10 was not stable :O. 14 might make it wobble but it's better than very slow wobbles.
