Talking about the baro - is there any configuration possible to tell the baro not to jump around like a rabbit? I mean it holds the altitude but it takes a long time and it's jumping up and down.

Do you have some open cell foam over the baro sensor? That can help settle it down somewhat so the prop wash isn't hitting it directly.

Quadrino & MultiWii 101

FlyingEinstein will be hosting a webex class each Sunday @ 3PM EST for an introduction to wiring the Quadrino and initial installation and configuration of the MultiWii Configuration software. This is a group discussion and a Question and Answer period will follow and asking questions during the webex is also encouraged. If you are having difficulties with setting up the Quadrino this is your chance to get your questions answered and your quad flying.

This class is offered through Cisco WebEx and supports up to 50 attendees at a time. To join the meeting goto flyingeinstein.webex.com between 2:45 PM and 3:00PM EST. The meeting will open at 2:45PM but will not begin until 3PM.

Hey does anyone no what the update rate is for the motor outputs on the zoom. I was looking at ESC's and saw some of them have high update rates instead of the typical 50hz. I did not realize that they had different rates available. I dont want to get an ESC with a non compatible refresh rate. The one I am looking at is 250hz.

I think it is 400!

Most common ESCs these days will support 400.

I got the quadrino rev1C or something. It's been 1 year+ i'm trying to tune that baro. The best was +/- 1m.

I enjoy my quadrino FC, strong and reliable but i hate its baro and mag.

If i connect the battery when my quad is upside down, taking off goes straight to a death flip. This doesn't happen with my others FC.

The Quadrino is now using a better baro it is the MS5611 chip.
I bet you can get you baro upgraded for a small fee!

Wow, that is 2.5mS vs 20mS. Do the new transmitters put out 400 Hz? I have a dx6. I wonder what the refresh rate of the gyros, and acc is. The new gps is only 20hz right. I'm not trying to bore anyone to death just curious.

That reminds me, I'be been gone for awhile, what's the status of Colins GPS module?
