More aux-channels

With the increasing number of features the two aux-Channels may not be enough to switch things on and off. I suggest we use channels 5 to 8 as aux1..4 and treat camstab and camtrig as features that can be mapped to any aux-channel. This way we don't waste two channels for people that don't control a...

Re: Impossible to solve my WMP problem

Hey, another information, nothing on SDA: 0V Nothing on SDA? Sounds suspicious. Usually the controller (in this case the Atmel) states a request on the bus, connected devices see this request, check if they're meant and if they are, they respond. SCL is the clock line, SDA is the data line. So what...

It seems like your devices comes with Android 1.6, proper BT came with Android 2.1, so the app won't run on your device - sorry.

BTW: Do you get an error message when you try to install it?

Re: Android tool to modify PID settings

Wie kann man verhindern das beim drücken des PID Button gleich die Tastatur öffnet. Hat mich auch schon genervt, aber nicht so sehr, dass ich das geaendert hab. Hat 5 min. gedauert das kurz zu ergoogeln und einzubauen. Hier der neue Stand: Here's an updated version that doesn't open the Keyboard wh...

Re: Android tool to modify PID settings

if I am connectet and the PID is press the keyboard button opens the keyboard. Not sure if I understood you correctly. You don't want to open the soft-keyboard when you switch to the PID-Settings-screen, right? I found it annoying myself, but didn't look into it since the keyboard can be disabled w...

Re: Android tool to modify PID settings

if I change baurate of the arduino side to 9600baud, all is OK with your tool ? Yes it is. The wireless BT-side doesn't know anything about bitrates. That is only relevant for the serial connection between Atmel and the wired BT-side. I wouldn't recommend continous graph-updates during flying, thou...

Re: microSD Shield

It would be great to flash only a microSD read/write programm to the arduino and the multiwii software would storaged precompiled on the microSD This isn't possible since AVRs run their software from flash. They can't run code in RAM and wouldn't have enough to load anything serious, anyway. Also i...

Re: Android tool to modify PID settings

check these libraries out. Nice find. I looked for existing Graph-libraries but didn't find anything usable. I had a quick look at the examples and it seems they only take care for low level communications (which already works here). Looking at the their code had a welcome effect, though. I noticed...

Re: android remote configuration app

Here it goes: m Do you plan to add sensor-readings to your app? I'm currently working on that on my app (see http://wbb.multiwii.com/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=248 ). Since it's waste of manpower to implement things twice I suggest we join and both work on your app (since it's already on the market).

Re: MultiWii disables serial RX - how to fix?

The nano hardware itself works, because if I run a simple sketch that reads and prints to serial then with terminal attached (over external ftdi) that works. It also works over the embedded ftdi of the nano itself. You only tested the serial port using FTDI-adapters but not the BT-adapter that will...

Re: Q: does broken serial connection block the main loop?

don't think the arduino will even realize this condition (for one way telemetry transfers). I strongly agree. The single wire that's used for transmitting data doesn't get any acknowledgement from the receiver. The Atmel would continue to send its data but nobody would receive anything. What does c...

Re: Android tool to modify PID settings

The idea was to create simple which is definetly the right way to do it. I just don't think it can be done right now. Chances are that my doubts come from not-knowing the processing-gui good enough and that it's actually quite simple. In that case: go ahead, make an example and if it works out peop...

Re: Android tool to modify PID settings

Would it be possible to share parser class with Processing GUI? As far as I remember the Processing-code, I don't think it would compile in Eclipse. Processing makes assumptions about types that are more like C than Java. Also it reads byte-by-byte from the serial filehandle that's connected to MWC...

Android tool to modify PID settings

In the last few days I've been writing an android-app to modify the PID settings via bluetooth. This is a first version that should work, it's still quite messy and needs a lot improvement. What does work: * Connect to a bluetooth-serial-adapter via SPP * Read and Modify all settings that are in the...
