Re: GPS NAV

Is this code base stable enough to use as a daily flyer? if I am not using the nav point, I like the idea of the fence/RTH code.

I need a new flight controller... Ideas

Well guy, the weather here was just getting nice enough to fly and what do I do, I take a low flyby clip my landing gear and upside-down into the snow bank. There must have been a short before the copter did not turn off until I was right next to it. Long story short I now get no data from my flight...

how to see sensor data?

I have a SRF10, trying to get some landing lights going. how do I know if it is setup correct.
so basically how do I see the sensor data in the UI so I can tweak the high/low for the lights.

Thanks

Re: Can MultiWii PRO land safely with loss of one motor on a

Short answer is no, I had a pro brake in mid flight and the copter went down.

at 1:43 you can see the prop in mid air.

I think it would be hard to detect a broken prop/motor.
I have since re-build the frame and there is almost no vibrations.

GPS return home

I was testing the GPS home last week and I had some odd issues, it does work flies about 8-10m around the home target. (I hope I can get that closer). but the big thing was if I turned on GPS home then touched the pitch/roll (to help out) it acted like it lost the home target and would freak out. I ...

Start to get the hang of it, (I think)

Re: power one motor from UI?

Do there is no UI debugging tool or stick compo before arming that will tall the system to only power one motor? since I have a hexa I am not sure if all the motors will cut if just be changing the rate at a low idle?

Is there a way in the multiwii/any other UI to only have it power on one motor at a time? so I can help isolate vibration.
