just came back from a test flight with my quad and genuine FC 2.1 with clone NC + MK3Mag + GPS.
I managed to get it work fine but the GPS is tricky, it doesn't always boot ok, so I get it to work, or I get a " no GPS communication" error and no date stream.
I did get U-center but don't dare to flash anything, do you guys know wich software for Ublox LEA5S?

Made my first video on board the quad. Just put the camera with some rubber bands against the side. First video is just raw, only compressed a little for youtube. Second is deshaken with virtual dub. But after that youtube doesn't recognize it as HD anymore?

Alternative mikrokopter onboard video test (4 min 5 sec)


mktest deshake (4 min 5 sec)

you have the BL soldered with the 10 pin header or just clip on? if clip on only, please try solder it as if no proper connection you also get the same error message.

i solder 4 pin from mkusb to bl. I did the same to red bl and work ok, but when i do it to green, i get error message like "try to reset, start bootloader" and after few second nothing happen. it feel like green bl does not have bootloader. but when i connect greeen bl, i get bl#1 on mktool

Great news, Taco!

Post that video, sans the Oceanic landing this time! Many of us are eager to see your results!

No twitching with your converter?
