Dear majik01 Thankyou for your support
- I downloaded MultiWii Win GUI Version 2.3 pre 8 by Andras Schalfer
- GPS unit is Holybro Hobby HG-M02 MTK3329
- in config H
#define GPS_SERIAL 2 // should be 2 for flyduino v2. It's the serial port number on arduino MEGA
//#define GPS_PROMINI_SERIAL // Will Autosense if GPS is connected when ardu boots.
// avoid using 115200 baud because with 16MHz arduino the 115200 baudrate have more than 2% speed error (57600 have 0.8% error)
#define GPS_BAUD 4800
#define INIT_MTK_GPS // initialize MTK GPS for using selected speed, 5Hz update rate and GGA & RMC sentence or binary settings
I also tried
But still not working
Rule of thumb ... avoid using beta releases as they have bugs ... unless you 100% know what you are doing. Go to MWC 2.3 official, when you get that to work, then test the Nav releases. For the MKT 3329, be sure your clear your EEPROM before everything. Uncomment frame and sensors. In the GPS section, line to uncomment would be NMEA, Serial 2, Init_MKT, 115200 Baud ... do not forget your mag dec (reach out if you need help). If you can upgrade to the Ublox CN-06 would be better. Connection of the GPS unit would be Rx-Tx, Tx-Rx, 5v-5v, Grd-Grd ... all on Serial 2. Keep your GPS unit at least 10 cm away from your FC board (to avoid EMI...) if you can, hook up a BT unit to an open Serial port and use EZGUI so you get wireless telemetry for your copter ...
Blocked? HK would not dare ... Look at the YouTube URL and remove the "s" at the end ... that usually works for me. If you are using Chrome, you also need to 'unblock" any local scripts from your browser (right end of the Google URL address bar...)
seriously this has been a steep learning curve..I help my friend build a race car that goes almost 200 mph and I was less frustrated building that! Anyway I digress..Can someone steer me as how to set up my Turnigy 9x how to get the AUX channels so my ANGLE flying mode will get programmed into the WINgui and the quad will self level?
Non-computer RC radios can be challenge to program since function switch/knob to radio channel is very hard to modified - if at all. Easier option is to use the modified TGY 9x - ER9x or the 9XR radio. Anywho, video shows how to set the flight modes in WinGUI. The TGY 9x will allow you to assign at least 2 Aux channels .. the three way switch for PH/RTH (there is a way to do that) and the gear swtich. The Taranis will allow you to program all four Aux channel as each toggle switch has three positions ...
I built a hexacopter, i mounted this Board with GPS, Bluetooth and an ultrasonic sensor.
I was too afraid to flash the Board cause evething else was really easy plug and play.
but my copter thinks he is a Quadcopter so is there anyone hew has a working flash file for me.
Is it possible to read out the actual file and change it to hexacopter?
I searched a lot but i still found old files with 2.0 or 2.2 and i have 2.3.
Also the tutorials they are really helpfull but still abit so old.
Could you help me????
Lorenz, One step at a time. Patience gets results. (1) Download the UART "silabs driver set" from the files tab to puter you are going to use to upload the modified sketch from. The UART driver is what allows your puter to talk to MWFC board. (2) You will have to down load your basic "Arduino Open software" from Arduino's website. Just Google "Arduino Software download". Then if you already have the 2.3 version on your puter, it will have to be opened and at far right side of sketch you will find drop down arrow, click that and all the sections of the software will open up and the "CONFIG H" is near bottom of drop down,,,click it. This will open up all the changes you will make. Look up "Mooch's" youtube channel for configuring each different section as nessisary (they are very helpfull). The first one you come to will be craft selection,,that is where the shoe drops with you right away, as HEX is not defined there in your default sketch. Defining is an action of deleating the forward slashes at the lead to selection to be defined. With slashs means "NO" and without slashs means you want it to "Do this".
Additionally you will need to down load the proper WINGUI 2.3 from the google site as that is the buffering software that is used to configure the board, make sure all the features such as GPS, ARTHOR, BAR, MAG, RC aux channel assignments, calibrating your ACC and the MAG. Also forgot to mention that in the GPS section to be defined you will have to modify your magnetic declination to an acurate representation to where you are on the planet. One step at a time. But you WILL have to madify the scetch and face the music of diving deaper. Sorry hope all this jibber jabber helps. Its reall not as bad as it sounds. Happy flying.
Great unit, with all the features you need for your MC. And the price is awsome, so normally, you cannot make a mistke on buying this unit.If you buy this features in europe, you will pay 3 times as much or more. For the HK price, you get at least the gps module ( sometimes ) but not incluiding the board, wich has a big and powerfull processor also. So another time, where HK makes our hobby affordable. This is what the MC-Flyers need to upgrade their machines.

Received the board today from HobbyKing .
After reading about all the broken Micro USB connectors on other FC like the Crius AIOP , I had a good look at the USB connector BEFORE connecting anything.
The micro USB connector is soldered to the board at the rear corners and also has 2 tabs half way down the sides.
Close inspection reveals that it does NOT have a lot of solder to hold it in place and YES it is likely to break off without some extra solder.
The side tabs do not appear to have been well soldered, my guess, surface mount automated soldering has not applied sufficient heat to get the solder flowing well around the tabs which are part of the larger metal connector shell, using a fine tipped soldering iron, care is required specially on the side near the pin headers, re soldered the metal tabs and also the rear corners of the connector, I don't think it will come off now.
Do keep in mind that is a very small connector and the cable can be used to apply sufficient leverage to rip it clean off the board, no amount of extra solder will prevent that, so be real careful not to apply sideways forces to the cable when plugged into the board.
The quality of the board, the soldering of all the other components, I can't fault it, all looks excellent.
Lots of information now in the files tab for the product at HobbyKing.
I connected the GPS to Serial 2, and the flashing LED
