    Trouble connecting to SP Racing F3 through Serial

    Hi all, I'm trying to implement control of my quad through an XBEE. I started on this thread, which got me into the Multiwii Serial Protocol. Another thread on the MultiWii forum goes into interfacing the board through Arduino, and this library was brought up, which should execute datalogging...

    Adding Bluetooth to Multiwii Pro 3, Do I need to edit the sketch?

    Hi, One of those "simple" addons... I am flying a quad with a witespy multiwii pro 3 FC board on it and the oem sketch which includes the GPS. So far I love it. Decided to add a redbear bluetooth module and it doesn't want to tell me what the FC board is doing. It seems like a comm problem...

    I've checked the prop direction, Calibrated the ESC's, even set the trim to the opposite direction. Nothing seems to help :( . I'm using the Flite Test Electrohub build kit, using a standard X-configuration. I think its something wrong with the programming maybe but I'm unsure. I'm using a...

    FPV Blunt Nose Versa - My Return to Planes

    Yesterday I was flying at the field and after filming I decided to use my 2200mAh packs for some leisurely cruising because lately my miniquad has been stressing me out. It was really relaxing and for some time I forgot that I was sitting next to my car, rather than floating around in the field...

    Multiwii 2.4 - Tricopter - How to activate yaw servo?

    Hi! I'm a multiwii-beginner and I am assembling a "2.0" version of my tricopter. Last year I used a FyeTech FY-901 FC, but I wanted something with more options so I bought a Crius AIO Pro 2.0 card. I have hooked up all the electronics, and it seems to be working fine.

    Flip 1.5 showing roll when on a flat table

    Hey guys. I just built my second electrohub (one for my brother). After trying to maiden it and having it inexplicably flip over every time we powered up (turned out to be a gyro calibration issue as wiring, motor direction, props etc were all correct). After getting that sorted I went into...
