Re: GPS Hold, What am i doing wrong??

Its definitely trying, can I get this better? When I click the GPS Hold does it also lock to Baro? and MAG? it seems like it does. The next Youtube clip shows the view from the copter at a good height, it also shows two crashes, which I believe are due to a faulty ESC? https://youtu.be/X6q1FSCEScc

Re: GPS Hold, What am i doing wrong??

And here are some pictures to show this really simple quad! The middle picture shows the different layers with a piece of copper clad board underneath the lid and another piece under the GPS.

Re: GPS Hold, What am i doing wrong??

Hello
Again thanks for you information. I will read carefully once kids are in bed.
However I did get some kind of GPS lock, check out the youtube clip.
https://youtu.be/JI379hG04ZA

For the whole clip I am not correcting the movement.

I am not sure how to do youtube clips on here?

Re: GPS Hold, What am i doing wrong??

I had another go this morning in the garden (two children prevented my escape) I still don't really seem to have a lock, or put another way I flick the switch and try not to apply any corrections but end up having to take control to prevent a crash. So I am really not sure if its doing anything. Jus...

Re: GPS Hold, What am i doing wrong??

Thanks for your reply, I really appreciate the time you have taken in your response. From your list of things the only thing I could see I had got wrong was Your GPS baud rate will be 57600. You can type in the speed if something else is already written. So when you're finished there your GPS baud s...

GPS Hold, What am i doing wrong??

Hello This may be a simple fix or may be something fundamentally wrong with my understanding of multiwii concept! Basically I have set up GPS hold and when I flick the switch nothing happens. In fact I am not really sure if I have ever had any mode working!! I know there is a lot of information on t...

Bicopter spinning out of control.

Hello I have tried loads of things and searched for the answer, but what ever I try it has no effect. I have a working Hex and Quad, so thought I would try a Bi, however when I place the bi on the floor and attempt to take of it spins out of control. I can see that the servos are moving in the wrong...

Re: MultiWii EZ-GUI

And
Its almost amusing that when I search for Multiwii on Google Playstore I get listed , Multiwii EZ-GUI Unlocker, and Multiwii EZ-GUI Logs Converter, which I would quite happily pay for, IF I could download Multiwii!!!!!!
