Frsky PPM sum hookup

Anyone know how to physically connect an Frsky receiver to get PPM to the MW board?

Some of the stuff I read over mentioned 3.3v and the risk of frying something.

Acrotrainer mode is now added to shared. With #define ACROTRAINER 200 . It's possible to fly around in level mode. Once the sticks is outside the 200 area it's in acroMode and can be flipped over. Release the stick and it will return to stable. Change the ACROTRAINER value to suite your flight styl...

Re: In MultiWiiConf 2.1, what does "Save" actually save?

Got it. So if I blow away the EEPROM, I've gotta restore my save file, but then recalibrate gyros, acc, and mag. And then manually trim my acc again. Oh, and set my aux buttons.

It would be nice if there was a way to store calibrations and ACC trim.

Keep in mind that your power wires and battery produce a magnetic field.

If you look at the IMU code above, there are two scenarios coded into it. One with gyros only, and one with gyros and level mode. Taking into account level mode increased the time of one cycle to something like 5 times that of gyros only. Due to resource contraints, it might not be possible to do al...

So, would the Kalman filter be applied before sensor inputs were used at all? Or just before feeding them to the inertial nav code? If you're implementing it, I would think you might as well apply it so the resulting output is used everywhere. This would make vibration in general less of an issue th...

Too bad this firmware hasn't been ported to work on the Silabs F330 chips yet. Apparently it is possible, but no one has done it yet. Many of the ESCs coming out are switching to this chipset, but using the same model number they were when they used Atmel.

I'm just about to test the code above. Does the Rate setting for pitch and roll get disabled in level mode? I didn't see it in the PID loop anywhere, unless it's returned from this: dynD8[axis]

If that's the case, then it DOES get disabled in Level mode.
