issue with gyro calibration?

I have HK nanowii board with an mpu6050 imu sensor. I noticed that the gyro yaw value is constant "1" in GUI (or 8 for raw 16 bit value) when the board is horizontal and not moving at all . This causes the calculated heading to increase at a rate of 1 degree per second. Because the board t...

Re: Auto descent when VBat critical

however, if the failsafe triggers gps return to home then you might damage the batteries more than if it just landed immediately. Then you have not set your failsafe corretly. My point of view is that you set your failsave according to your mission objectives. When your mission is to fly in your ba...

Re: Different Yaw Speed for clockwise and counter clockwise

When you mount your motors straight on to a frame the yaw is caused by the drag of the props (rotation speed). Thats a small force that almost never provide a fast and good yaw authority. You have to make sure that the distance between the motors (pair) are exactly the same. E.g.: if distance betwee...

Re: MultiWii Joystick

Re: QuadX (Arduino Yun) controlled from laptop via WiFi

1 & 2) by default NOT.
- you would need to change the Multiwii GUI source code so it can use UDP/TCP protocol.
- or you should find some kind of TCP/IP virtual com port driver that you can install on your laptop/pc.

Re: Newbie with trouble with 328p HK multiwii minthrottle

When you arm the MWii it will send the min throttle value (as set in your config file) to your motors. So on arming the motors should spin. You can lower this value to 1000 or even 900 then your motor should not spin on arming. But I think in your case you should just calibrate your ESC. When the FC...
