Re: MultiWii EZ-GUI

The minimum baud rate in CF is 9600, so you can't go lower. You may wish to consider either building from git master (or the nightly builds of pre-1.12 ); this provides LTM (Light Telemetry) that is fully supported by ezgui 3.6.125. Using pushed telemetry (vice polling) reduces the load on CF soft s...

Re: New Multiwii Serial Protocol

The MSP_WP / MSP_SET_WP data structures changed from 2.3 for 2.3-nav and 2.4. You need to use the correct firmware and message structure (and 2.3-nav or 2.4 for Wingui). The 2.3-nav/2.4 messages are documented at https://docs.google.com/document/d/16Zf ... sp=sharing .

For 1.9, tri yaw servo is #5, setting bit 0 of the rate field (i.e. 100 => 101) will reverse the servo.

Other than the comments in config.h, none that I'm aware of. MW will send its own configuration to the device, so it is not necessary to pre-configure it. My two Neo 6m have never been configured (as ucentre is, afaik, legacy OS only), yet they work fine in MW and Cleanflight, ublox mode, 57600 baud.

It really doesn't matter which props you have on a tri. On mine (2) I always have CW (P) and CCW (S) at the front and which ever of CW/CCW prop I haven't broken at the back. Changing the aft direction also requires changing the 'at rest' angle of rear motor for straight flight with centred yaw.

Re: Cleanflight aka Multiwii port to STM32 F10x and F30x

If you turn on CF telemetry it spews out data it thinks you might need, unfortunately including (big) MSP_BOXNAMES every cycle, which is not good for low bandwidth links. This is why the mission logger apps (ez-gui, mwp, wingui) poll for the data they want. I would expect OSDs to do the same.

In order to get RX_SERIAL to save, you must have completely configured the serial port, i.e. provider and sceanrio. See Serial.md, and Rx.md. For example (Spek Sat).

Code: Select all

feature RX_SERIAL
set serial_port_1_scenario = 1
set serial_port_2_scenario = 3
set serialrx_provider = 1

Works fine.
