Big steps in proper direction

Well, as a status update: I soldered up the only alternate arduino-based electeonics that I received from DIYDrones and when, as u recommended, I tried with an alternate FTDI adaptor I was suddenly able to complete the verify and upload to board the MultiWii 1.8rev2 package. Lo and Behold! For the first time in quite a lot of tries, finally I was able to view the data while in the config GUI!

Thanks for the assistance, it is very much appreciated.

Spektrum adapter instead of receiver + patch cables?


Now I've another inquiry: is it possible to substitute the physical receiver when on ver 1.8+ in place of simply a Spektrum satellite that has been pre-bound (binded) to my transmitter via AR7000 or similar? I am a little confused after what I've read, as nothing explicitly states this, yet in the interest of saving weight and wiring complexity it would seem desirable to do this.

It looks like all I need to do solder pin 19 to the grey cable, Ground to black, and 3.3V to orange and then uncomment the //#define Spektrum in the config.h or is there some intermediate bit of hardware that needs to go between the two elements?

Thanks again!

ser 2 connector


hye all,
I want ot connect a remzibi poor gps(gnd-black,5v-red,tx-white,rx-blue) trough the "ser" little white connector on a flyduino board.
I've bought the specific wire @ flyduino.com.

And now I would like to know the connecting diagram of this connector.

I've found the following with a multimeter
from TX1/Rx1/5v/gnd connector (up) to rc receiver pins(down)

"ascii" schematic:
TX1/RX1/5v/gnd

pin6: Ground
pin5: 5v
pin4: TX
pin3: RX
pin2: gnd
pin1: unknow xck?

rc pin reciver

is it correct ?

The black one's name must be Adam!
And the girl at his side (must be a girl - with silvery arms) was made from one of his ribs. Hmmm ... did you control if he still got all of his?




Again: very professional setup! You can start mass production now...

In case of any questions do not hesitate to ask!
I think a detailed setup instruction will be online soon now that Paul's Wiki is up 'n running.

I like the board too, and also the idea of a wiki with Paul's stuff and MWC settings for his frames and motors. Most import I think is a good article about the LLC and which sensor works with which board (with or without LLC).

Hi flow23,

I will include the info when re-writing the setup instructions (How-to guide).

By the way: you can mount any sensor to the board since it gives you plenty of possibilities ...

Well Tilmann, why don't you build a third one with 'minimalistic' flight controller and RX?
Paul has a nice new board which perfectly suits the spider (lol) and Alex/Danal have the Spektrum code (https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...1504116&page=5) running.

--> everything is there for an all-in-one flight controller + satellite receiver (making it even simpler than https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/atta...mentid=4338468).

Joerg, I know. I have already seen the prototype some time ago. Will try your board on my next quad. Paul just sent me a set of 12" props, so I need to build a quad that's big enough to test them.

I already downloaded the Spektrum version but didn't try it yet. Instead of soldering a VC to the power line of the Spektrum satellite, I thought about using the 3V3 from the board.

However, the possibility of using Spektrum satellites is great. No more standard receivers with all their wiring.

But she is more perfect than him.

You even drilled the holes for the motors differently to let all wires swing to the back. Perfect!

No, hole distances are all 19mm. I just had 12 motors and picked out 3 with wires to the left and 3 with wires to the right.

But you're right: It's a SHE because HE's got more power.
