Sensors are not set correcly for your board.

And what did you setup in the config.h tab in MultiWii prior to upload ?

Changed to #define HEX6X and #define A0_A1_PIN_HEX and that was it. Did I miss something?

You need to specify which board your using.
Download the file that is already setup on HK download page HERE

then use that and config as HEX and other things you need

--- EDIT ---
It is already setup for the board in that file

For some reason when I used the 2.1 program it would not function. I now am using the 2.0 program with the 2.1 parameters copy and pasted into the proper sections in the 2.0 program and I would say its successful for now. The picture is while the Hexacopter is on a flat surface. I don't know if the grey values are supposed to be that spiky.

You always need to use the gui version that match multiwii version

all of the sensors are red and not green (see middle of the screen and right a bit). im guessing you need to define them in to arduino sketch

I think that could have been the problem. I could not find the file that had the Configurer for the 2.1 version the file just came with the arduino program

Dialfonzo, it's not just a 32bit CPU, it's a different architecture, ARM.

Hexoween copter


Just wanted to share a picture of my hexcopter shot during tonights halloween festivities in our neighborhood. Fenced off the front yard so kids wouldn't run underneath the copter when I was flying. Trick or treaters all enjoyed the scary flying skull.
