Trimming X-quad

Post by Polleke »

Hi,
Every time I have recharged my battery. i need to trim my Xquad all over again (not the TX it self, but with the sticks).
Is that normal or am i doing something wrong?

Config:
MultiWiiConf1_7
WM+ (clone from ebay)
BMA 020
ESC Mistery Cloud 30A
RCTimer DC2830-14 with 10x4.5 prop
Turnigy 3300 nano battery

GUI shows no strange things.

No, this is not normal.

If this implies you use MultiWii version 1.7 then you are likely not getting much more info , because development has proceeded some. Version 1.9 is current and very stable, the version 2.0 is imminent.

Thank you for answering so fast.
I've uploaded the 1.9 version in the Arduino 0022.
Giro ROLL, PITCH and YAW look very stable, but i don't get any readings on the ACC part in the GUI.
(the picture on the right under corner in the GUI is'nt moving also)
Just tried it outside, but it has only acro mode :(
Any sugestions?

in a sketch when you want to add a comment without altering your sketch you put 2 slashes in front of it

Code: Select all

//this is a commented line

the sketches we use have a lot of items commented because they are features or components your particular quad may or may not have.
so you comment items you dont have and uncommment ones you do.

Code: Select all

#define BMA020
//#define BMA180


in this example you can use bma020 but bma180 is commented and will not work.

hope that helps

Do you get reading on debug2?

I've un-comment the BMA020 like "kalle123" told me to do (also thanks to "tovrin") and I have now readings on my GUI. :D
I will try and fly tomorrow because it's to dark at the moment, also hope it's not to windy.
I will let you know the results tomorrow.

Sorry to say.
Tried it out today, but still not holding the trimming with the TX-sticks (meaning blinking light on the Arduino) in memory. :(
The first time I flew it, I had to trim the ROLL 7 times to the left and 5 times PITCH down.
The secund time (after recharging my batt) I had to trim the ROLL 4 times to the left and the PITCH 3 times down.
NOTE: there was NO WIND at all. Loaded MultiWii 1_9
