Re: MultiWii EZ-GUI

Did a short test, 1 pack, with EZ GUI ver 3.15.67 "set altitude". Couldn't resist. Glad to say it went well with my setup. AIO pro v1.0 with hobbyking 3DR. Testing was limited only up to 20 meters altitude. My quad smoothly ascended/descended to various altitudes within the range. Alt PID ...

Re: MultiWii EZ-GUI

on which map (online or offline) home position doesn't show up ?


Online map. Won't be able to test offline map mode right now. I just realized it has different zooming properties.

Busy for the day.

Re: MultiWii EZ-GUI

That was a quick reply Ezio. Its still a great app BTW. It is so because you keep on improving it. One more thing, with the extended range of the 3DR modules, it is hard to choose new home/hold position in the maps screen since it keeps on centering on the phone position. It also defaults to short r...

Re: MultiWii EZ-GUI

Just tested latest version of EZ GUI and MW version 1349. Follow me, new home/hold position worked well although there were some issues; 1. In maps, home position doesn't appear anymore went selecting a new hold/home position 2. Followheading doesn't work in flight. It caused the copter to oscillate...

Re: MultiWii EZ-GUI

Bad weather, will not be able to do flight test next few days. Just checking the out the update, I noticed that the home position and the "you" position stays in South Africa at the Gulf of Guinea. I tried recalibrate acc, to reset home position, but it does not change in the map view. I t...

Re: MultiWii EZ-GUI

UPDATE. Tried testing today and "follow me" somewhat works. When follow me is activated the android lat and long is updated to new home position. Activating the RTH will cause the copter to go to the new home position. Coordinates are not exact but very close. (<2M and sometimes dead on) ....

Re: MultiWii EZ-GUI

Re-installed r1268 and GUI now shows Lat and Long. While making sure that the copter is near enough that BT connection is working, RTH was activated and the copter proceeded to the home position after which "follow me" was activated. The line flashed green but the copter remained in its in...

Re: MultiWii EZ-GUI

Tried follow me it with r1268 briefly, the follow me line blinks green, the copter proceeded to follow but stops and stays on hold after around 5 secs. Follow me not working with r1275. Furthermore GPS coordinates longitude and latitude not displayed anymore. Only distance and direction to home are ...

Re: GPS integration

I've always inserted this in gps.ino beginning line 43 ever since it was removed so hompos can be set while in flight. if (rcData[AUX1]>1800) { GPS_I2C_command(I2C_GPS_COMMAND_SET_WP,0); nav_takeoff_bearing = heading; GPS_fix_home = 1; } I hover for a few sec before hitting the switch to insure a go...

Re: GPS integration

I tried once setting the gps baud by setting Serial.begin(9600) in the I2C GPS since this was the default of my FGPMMOPA6B GPS but it didn't work. I ended up installing a backup battery so I can set the default to 115200. I didn't try any other speed. A also think that changing the gps baud in confi...

Re: GPS integration

dfidalgo, I have wmp, nunchuck hmc5883, bmp085 setup. Had similar problem when I was setting it up, I2C errors, no gyro, no acc but magnetometer working. I think I solved it when I copied the twi.c and twi.h patch from m to the arduino-1/libraries/wire/utility/ folder. With the new twi.c and twi.h, ...

Re: GPS integration

Fritz, did you replace the twi.c and twi.h with the patch from :
http://code.google.com/p/i2c-gps-nav/so ... 253Dclosed
located in the arduino-1.0\libraries\Wire\utility folder?

You are having I2C errors meaning that there is communication problem between the main and secondary arduino.

Just I2C. But as I said, code works as is, no modification needed.

Re: GPS integration

I just realized that inverting (lat2-lat1) was needed because I swapped "N" for "S" in the I2C Nav code (I did that when I was debugging my setup). Everything now works fine as it is (MW2p4 and I2CGPS v0.1)for my setup. Arrow points home.


Sorry if it caused some confusion.

For this who are having problems with the mag, it would help if you are aware of your area's magnetic declination and inclination. Essentially, the earths magnetic field is only parallel to the earths surface near the equator, it's XY component is less nearer the poles. Z component is different from...

Re: GPS integration

Nils,

Thanks for pointing out the changes in the trunk. I didn't notice that since I was using i2c nav.

I know that the GPS code is still in its infancy. I am just amazed by the evolution of Multiwii. Succeeding in GPS interfacing opens up new possibilities.

Re: GPS integration

Hello, I did not swap dlon or change the sign in the errorangle calculation. I figured that the GPS reading/orientation is different from northern and southern hemisphere and whether you are west or east of Lat 0 (or GMT). I think the stock GPS code works if your in Australia. I also realized when I...
