Re: MegapirateNG on Multiwii EZ pro 3

It's pretty simple. Arducopter and Multiwii are two different firmwares that can run on the same hardware. Not interchangable as they are two separate development platforms. Use one firmware or the other.
They do NOT work together.

Just download version 2.4 and install it using the Arduino IDE. Mission planner is for creating gps missions, not for updating firmware.
