Any tips on what to read for this and where to buy all the parts (north america) would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Steve, welcome!

Have to say documentation have to get better, but i added a second a go a link to a spreadsheet in which every pin get a meaning for the multiwii.
The setup of every multiwii is quite similar, in my case usinf a atmega 2560 instead of the smaller 328, which simply give more options.
It shouldnt be too hard for someone who was able to build several mikrokopters.

The main part, CPU Board, the Flyduino will arrive middle of this week i hope.
Some sensors are needed too, this is may the most tricky part as there are many options.
From simple WMP NK or BMA020, to some fullfeatured 9DOF sollutions, Freeimu, Atmel Boards, Allinone imu etc.
Not that few, most of them are very similar in the components and only need a simple comment in Alex soft and you are ready to go.
The senosrs are similar connected like you did before with your ESC.
The ESC now are driven by a PWM signal, they can be simply directly connected to the Flyduino, no brainer.
YOur RX channels too, you can use both regular and ppm RX.
Of course there is something to learn, best place to start,, but lots of people got working configs and are nice guys who like to help.

There are also very great other projects, Megapirate and Aeroquad, at least the Megapirate fully supports my flyduino, but for the start, Multiwii .... its pure fun.
If you got used to it and want to play more, try the pirate, GPS is allready implemented and working.

great info I really appreciate the post... I want to keep it simple for this one...

all I require is what was shown in the second video on this page

can someone help out a noob with my parts list?

looks like I need a paris board to mount stuff to... then an arduino mini, and either a wii mote and nun chuck acc or I just buy this...

which come with the ability to upgrade in the future.... oddly enough listed as a hex but I am sure you would just load differnt code for a quad right?

Those MWC Board who are offered from me , as Warthox did it and gave me, and Alouette who did a Paris on its own are basically mounting bases for the Pro mini and the sensors you choosed.
Regarding the sensor configuration, a LLC, which is implemented on a bob in my sortiment f.e., or externally etc., can make sense, but its not needed if you comment the pullups out in the soft.
With the MWC Board Warthox made as with the Paris, btw Flyduino MWC be back in stock end of month in my shop, you can use all sensors avaiable, both care for 3.3V also,for your info you dont even need at all3.3V for org. wmp and bma020.

But the capability of the Setup is not given by the mounting board you use!
Its given by the cpu board itself the pro mini, they help you to make a clean setup and helps in some cases, 3.3V f.e., but wont add any pin to the cpu, in the case you want to use all features avaiable you may should regard a mega, like my flyduino.

Flyduspider - pre-drilled alu arms

Hi Paul,

any progress on the flyduspider pre-drilled alu arm? By the way: do you plan to add alu frames for the quad too?
