Does the telemetry function include realtime showing position on the map?
I'd like to see some screenshot of that new map functionality if someone has some time to take them :)..Is wingui also reverse compatible with the earlier serial protocols?
Regarding telemetry, is it compatible with openlrs?

Map functionality is still work in progress. You can see your position on the map and save the track into a kml file...

..Is wingui also reverse compatible with the earlier serial protocols?
Nope, 2.1.02 works with dev0618 only, WinGUI2.1 is meant to be for MultiWii 2.1 so if the serial protocol changes it will follow it till the release of MultiWii 2.1


Regarding telemetry, is it compatible with openlrs?
Well, afaik openLRS provides a slow serial channel for telemetry, you can configure the GUI for slow refresh rate, then you have to connect to openLRS via a serial connection at the ground end and to the multiwii FC at the flight end.

Update rate settings for telemetry use

Post by EOSBandi »

In guisettings.xml there are a couple lines which governs the relative refresh rates of each GUI elements.

the value is a divider which used to divide the default refresh rate (which you can set on the Realtime tab)
So if you set 20Hz update rate, then the values means :
1 - 20Hz
2 - 10Hz
4- 5Hz
10 - 2Hz
20 - 1Hz

Code: Select all

    <MSP_STATUS_RATE_DIV value="10" />
    <MSP_RAW_IMU_RATE_DIV value="1" />
    <MSP_SERVO_RATE_DIV value="4" />
    <MSP_MOTOR_RATE_DIV value="4" />
    <MSP_RAW_GPS_RATE_DIV value="2" />
    <MSP_COMP_GPS_RATE_DIV value="2" />
    <MSP_ATTITUDE_RATE_DIV value="1" />
    <MSP_ALTITUDE_RATE_DIV value="10" />
    <MSP_BAT_RATE_DIV value="20" />
    <MSP_RC_RATE_DIV value="2" />
    <MSP_MISC_RATE_DIV value="10" />
    <MSP_DEBUG_RATE_DIV value="2" />

Update 06.26
2.1.03Beta is out. This is an interim release since map and waypoint functions are not yet fully enabled (waiting for additional serial commands to be approved).
What is new : WinGUI is now resizeable! The realtime graph, video capture and map is now grows with the main window. Other gui elements are rearranged dynamically but don't grow (too much work to make all user control elements resizeable, this is slated to the next release)
MAP prefetch : If you want to use the map without internet connection, you can prefetch the map tiles before you go to the field. Just select your field of interest (left click and drag mouse while holding ALT) then press the Fetch button. WinGUI will cache the selected area in every zoom level.

nope. Aforge does not support audio recording. what is the use of audio recording, usually you dont get audio in fpv?

It would be nice if the mappage remembers the choice of mapsystem.
GoogleMap is the only option in my area.
Bing can only show down to 1000 meters....
Ovi is a little better.
Check my coordinats 60.0 13.6

I would like if to remember Google as my choice.

EOSBandi, I just tested Beta3 and it does not display the symbol(motor,servos, etc) for Airplane the same as it does for the copter configurations. Is this intentional or a bug?

Update 06.27
2.1.04Beta is out
- Added MSP_WP command to query Home and poshold positions from the FC (appropiate changes are commited to _shared at r944) MSP_WP must be enabled in the FC by uncommenting the #define USE_MSP_WP line in the GPS section of the config.h
- MapProvider selection is now saved and remembered
- Improved KML logging (now logs routes, home position and poshold positions)
- Added parameter reset function
- Other small annoying bugfixes

Hi All,
It all looks very flash, by that I don't refer to memory!
I have a major problem the GUI sends a stream to the FC, diagnosed by the RX LED on my Quadrino board flashing but no information is displayed on the GUI screen. The Quadrino TX LED goes not flash when I send a command from the GUI "read " or write for instance, though the Rx LED does go out. Seems to me that the Quadrino is not replying to any requests. All other functions of the GUI seem OK and I don't get any error messages. I am communication via a USB cable on COM6 and the baud rate is the same in FC as GUI , I am running The rev of MULTIWii code down loaded with R33 Modified for quadX and I2C Sat Nav The Sat Nav unit is a Navigatron V1and I have reflashed and tested with Mini GPS it worked fine. I also changed the on board processor program to the one down loaded in R33,
My Laptop is Running W7 64 bit and I have loaded all NET frame work files.

Any suggestions would be welcome, I am computer literate but by no means a coder so please keep it simple.

Regards

John

Please read the first post. You have to use dec0618 or later release of MultiWii code.... for Home position and and poshold display you have to use the latest _shared code.
WinGUI 2.1 is a work in progress aiming to support MultiWii 2.1 and evolves alongside with the MultiWii code.

Andras

Andras,
Thanks for your rapid reply.
May I take this opportunity of thanking you on behalf of a great number of "Flyers" for all your sterling work on WinGUI and GPS. How do you find the time?
I am sure taking time to answer stupid questions that only involve RTFM can not be helpful, I know as I have to keep reminding apprentices to read first and ask questions second. Some advice I should pay heed to!

Regards and Keep up the Good work

John

Okay,
As we are approaching MultiWii 2.1 release it time to prepare to release WinGUI 2.1 too. So I pulled together the first release candidate version.
WinGUI 2.1 RC1
Changes : Added graphics for Airplane, VTail, Heli120 and Heli20
Fix : Serial protocol error message handling.

Please test if you have time...

EOSBandi, There seems to be a bug in the 2.1 release real time Servo updates for Bicopter(not sure for others), they read 1500. I tried the JAVA GUI and the reporting works.

From kml log file:

<coordinates>
22,88143,55,0917,8
22,8814283,55,0916983,8
22,8814283,55,0916966,8
22,8814266,55,0916966,8

This is not correct. Decimal symbol - ",". Should be a dot. Maybe regional settings problem? With us is a sign of the decimal - ","...

Guys,
I've got a couple of requests about localising the WinGUI. The question : If all other documentations, comments and settings are in English in MUltiWii, then what is the reasoning behind a localised WinGUI ? MultiWii is not a plug and play solution (Alex also stated this) having a localised WinGUI will attract users who did not tried MultiWii due language issues, they will not read any manual or comment in the code... are we there yet to attract such users ?

+1 You have right EOSBandi. If ppl don't take the time to try to understand the gui in English or use a translator then they newer will read any doc:s on the multiwii build.

There are other help forums for different languages. It's not ideal, but can't be everything to everyone....

Hi !
Both GUI's original and this one work with BT dongle @11520 with little problems (reseting BT helps) try to download Asus BT stack (free driver). I'm using Asus USB/BT - windows will create two serial ports (in my case 34 & 35) connection is possible only on port with higher #.
People also use Toshiba BT stack but in my case no luck (created many ports but none of them work)
Also crossing TX, RX lines help.

Tom

mine is asus too... but the higher# port will not connect... (the gui simply froze and not response) the driver is from asus which is original for the bt

by saying crossing tx/rx... do you mean plug tx into rx and rx into tx? or twist the tx/rx cable together?


thanks

Hi, nope. I just forgot to add files for the log_downloader function. I corrected it, but please note that onboard logging is an experimental feature which does not published yet... It needs an on-board dataflash module with custom code... :D

I try to connect my notebook using old external BT dongle class 1, i got 100 m (i put the notebook inside the car). The problem with latest wingui is when the quad was out of BT coverage and i tried the quad get closer, the BT connection cannot reconnect and the application freezing. Its maybe some bugs ? Or any tips to solve this problem?

Thanks,

John

Hello,

the new download is now working for me. Thanks!!!

By the way: The first start ask me to say a standard COM-Port.
This value can't change on the GUI Settings Tab. But it could be a good idea!
