This was my most recent build done 6 months ago. I have no idea what the motor sequence is. It's just a standard quadPlus for multiwii.

Re: Quadcopter Not flying

Hi. I checked your video. It might be normal. The GUI may drift a lot in yaw since you don't have a magnetometer. The quad won't actually drift that much during flight though. Your roll and pitch look level with no drift which is what matters the most. To be safe, you should calibrate the accel ever...

Re: Quadcopter Not flying

config.h is the only file you should modify. I suspect you have changed to much code and should start with a fresh code base.

There is a "Define QuadX" that you need to uncomment to get QuadX working.

There is a "Define QuadPlus" if you want to use + configuration.

Re: Quadcopter Not flying

Hi Nash.

You say throttle moves in the GUI. Do the motors also show they are getting power in the GUI?

If motors show they are getting power in the GUI, arming copter should make all motors jump up to minimum power level, then I'm not sure what else to try. It should work.

There are options for turning the board 45 degrees left or right in the yaw axis. How about in the pitch axis so we can mount the board standing up instead of flat?

I'm assuming this won't be a easy to do since it involves accel changes if we want to use "Level" mode?
