I am running a new RTF Paris 3 Multiwiicopter board and using a Hitec Aurora 9 transmitter, I cannot get it to arm or respond to any throttle inputs. I have tried to reverse the throttle and upped the subtrim 100 with no luck. Stock endpoints are at 150% and cannot go higher on throttle.

Any help?

Where does the Gui show that you are with your throttle?

I could be wrong, but I think 1.7 final is the first release using the new IMU code http://wbb.multiwii.com/viewtopic.ph...8&hilit=vector I was setting up a Mega yesterday and noticed some interesting results. Even if not the case, remember that any horizontal acceleration (result of a tilted copter) results in the net acceleration vector not pointing straight down. The old IMU uses only the net accel vector for correction. The new IMU somehow integrates the gyro & accel data to come up with a vector (I think) I have not flown the new IMU yet, but I think it's a good thing. Anyway, I'm guessing the change you are sensing is a result of the new IMU.

When you refer to "heading hold" I think you are talking about gyro only. Once again, the IMU is processing sensor data differently.

From what I understand, the bottom line is there is a significant change in 1.7 final.

I have built a Hexa X Copter:
more details in this post:
https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...ostcount=13596

a video i made earlier:
http://vimeo.com/22883244


The problem is, that the Copter flies in head holding mode, like in a slow leveling mode.
That means i give pitch forward and it flies forward, but slowly changes back to level.
Thats not head hold flying any more, and i don't know whats the problem here.

Flying in the ACC mode, works as expected. If i release sticks, it does immediately level.

I had this wii board before in my Quadro Copter in X mode and it flew in head holding mode completely as it should.

The only thing i changed is:
1. use it on my Hexa X Copter
2. add the BMP095 with a Level Converter
3. changed code from 1.7pre to 1.7 final

So what can i do?

No, i think this is just for ACC (level) mode, which does work very good.

In "head holding" (gyro only) mode, the accel data should not be used and the copter should stay at his present angle. (position)

Hello warthox,

You tried sooo many boards, which board is yous favorite one? ... Choose only 1!

PS: Nice video!

I see you have nice mountains not so far. Do you never go for RC-soaring or dynamic soaring?

I am using an arduino 2560 mega with an aeroquad 2.0 shield and wii sensors running on multiwii 1.7 flight software. I have flown my quad before on aeroquad sorfware, but i have heard multiwii software is better with wii sensors so i am giving it a try. This video shows how my flights have gone so far.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aTpwPrI-HUE

In this video i am flying on level mode. I have gotten a few longer flights than this, but nothing longer than 15 seconds, when I get the quad off of the ground it just sort of drifts around, it is not twichy, but it is not stable. when I give the quad full throttle it just bounces around in the air and doesnt get any higher than a few feet off the ground. Any suggestions?
