You have a point. I'm used to the acro quads with power to spare, I must've underestimated.
I have a 4000mah 30c pack laying around I'll try out, but I know I'm not going to be happy with the flight time

The battery is getting a little warm, but not too bad. I have flown with under rated batteries before on airplanes and it doesn't seem to be the same thing happening, however I may be wrong since I've only seen it with stock escs, no fc and on an airplane moving forward. I'll try a 30c 4000mah batte...

Terrible throttle response with blheli

I'm working on tuning my hex that I just finished with multiwii, running blheli with damped light s550 frame 2212 1000kv knockoff motors dji style 1038 carbon props rtfq ez-20 esc's multistar 5200mah 10C 3S. I am running damped light on the ESC's, and the motors do seem to run a little rough. I trie...

Have you done any modifications since?
The only way to change motor direction is to swap it in the software or change two of the motor wires around

HMC5883L mags always return to boot orientation

I've had this problem with every single HMC5883L mag I've ever had on a multi running multiwii. In the gui, it shows a specific orientation, sometimes varying by a degree or so. When I rotate the multi, the compass rotates (I'm assuming it's just picking up a gyro rotation) but then it slowly return...

I don't quite understand what you mean. The shield of the coax cable is connected to ground, the only part of the antenna that's active is the last 31mm, think of the rest as an extension cable.

Re: FRSKY telemetry integration into Multiwii 2.4 has starte

I feel like I'm a little out of place here but the current multiwii2.4 on the google code page does not have the telemetry.cpp/h files. Where can these be downloaded? I found the article on the wiki about it being implemented in r1754, where there are a few affected files, but they cannot be downloa...

Re: Exactly 18 i2c errors crius aio pro

I am running 2.4, so it should be avoiding that, but I guess there's just a long boot time on something.

Re: Exactly 18 i2c errors crius aio pro

I have the GPS on serial, there is an external mag but it is not hooked up, In all honesty it probably should be, the other one is relatively close to wiring. Will multiwii save the I2C errors and only report them once connected? It seems that it doesn't matter if I connect it before or after a flig...

Exactly 18 i2c errors crius aio pro

I recently put a crius aio pro board on my quad with a neo6m. Every time I connect with the ezgui I get exactly 18 i2c errors. No more, no less. I haven't taken note if it shows on the multiwii config tool on my laptop. It flies fine and never has more i2c errors after that. What could be causing th...

Re: Direct RC signal out from PPM

I set up an output on channels 7 and 8, and tried connecting it to both D44 and D45, the gimbal controller is reading it at 1506us, so it looks like it's an output channel, but it's not changing regardless of what inputs I make. What about if I enabled camstab and set the servo gain to 0, or would t...

Re: Direct RC signal out from PPM

Okay I can do that, but I'm running a mega board so pins A0 and A1 aren't broken out, is there an easy way to change them?

From my understanding, it is the same as a quad in that it just uses differential propeller torque to rotate, there is no yaw mechanism

Re: Direct RC signal out from PPM

I don't want to power a servo gimbal, I want to control the pitch of my brushless gimbal with RC input from my transmitter.

Direct RC signal out from PPM

I need RC out to control a few things on my quad (gimbal pitch control, RC light control), but I am running a D4R-II in PPM mode and therefore cannot connect directly to my receiver. I know I have to do something along the lines of pinx = RC_something[x], but I don't remember the exact variable name...
