Arduino/MultiWii 1.7 is loosing settings

Post by TR2N »

Hello everybody,

i have a really weird problem with my configuration settings. I am running the MultiWii-software version 1.7 on a "Arduino Pro Mini". Nunchuck and WMP are connected proberbly. Every two/three flights with my Quad(P) the Arduino(?) loses its settings (PID and YAW Rate values). So i have to connect it to my rig and have to reconfigure the settings in the MultiWiiConf-software.

Is it possible that the reason for that is a bug in the 1.7 version?

Thank you for any hint you have for me!

I have a same kinds of problem, but with development version dev20110607 and it's loose some (not all) PID settings in every power-off cycle. Software version 1.7 works perfectly, so i think hardware is OK.
Have anyone else this kinds of problems?

I've the same problem too.

Every 3 or 4 flights I loose the settings, and the ACC/MAG/BARO switch doesn't work anymore untill I reconfigure all parameter(PID, Flight modes, etc etc)...

Any idea??

sounds like its getting corrupted some how. careful when plugging it into the computer. Check all grounds, and make sure that you don't disturb it when read / writting to the unit.
