Re: Arming Motors

Have you set your Minthrottle in the firmware high enough? Beware, in new Versions you have to set it in the UI and the config.h setting is ignored. Mine defaulted to 1050 which was too low to make the motors spin.

Re: GPS NAV

YAW-Direction is not longer handled in Config.h, you have to switch it in the gui. I think that is true for an increasing number of features/parameters. Guess how I found out. It is an improvement as it reduces the number of times you have to reflash the firmware. Maybe it would be agood idea to re...

Re: Motor power reducing

Actually, I think you can use the vibration monitoring function within MutiWii, it must be enabled somewhere in the config.h and you have to reload the firmware without it again later, but probably easier than rewiring everything.

Re: Motor power reducing

So in the meantime you had some stable hovers, but the apparent power has reduced with each flight? In multiwii, unexpected power loss is sometimes caused by heavy vibration.
