Controlled by an Atmel Mega168PA 8-Bit RISC based micro controller and utilizing a single 3-axis MEMS gyro the Hobbyking i86 Multi-Rotor Control Board is capable of 8 Multi-rotor craft types and 2 flight modes without the need to flash the micro controller. The simple dip switch systems allows for quick and easy selection of your desired Multi-rotor configuration and flight mode.
Light weight and compact the i86 can fit in the smallest of craft and includes a small piece of double sided tape to install.
The Hobbyking i86 Multi-Rotor Control Board supports: Aero (fixed wing) Dual copter Tri copter Quad copter X Quad copter + Hex copter H6 copter Y6 copter All of the above modes can be set in "Normal" mode or "Sports" mode (default normal)
Specs: Input Voltage: 4v to 6v Input signal: 50hz standard PPM PWM Frequency: 400hz for ESC, 50hz for servos Gyro scale: +/- 500dps, ODR: 800hz Operating temp: -40° C to 85° C Size: 40mm x 40mm Weight: 8g
Good Day! Prompt what site you take the firmware for this flight controller? What software is stitched flight controller? And the second question: This is the flight controller software installed after purchase, or need to pray that he flew?
set my new quad up at 90% on both Pitch and Roll and Yaw at 75%.
Works GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. I know it kind of opposite of your settings, but I tried those and it was very suirly.
I do use a bit of expo also on pitch and roll as I am kind of ham fisted at times. LOL
I really like the i86 board. SUPER EASY to set up and user friendly too boot. :-)
I am glad I happened across your video here.
Fantastic Carl. On a quad, you can crank the Yaw gyro up to almost max and it is recommended to do so. But if you are satisfied with it, best to leave well enough alone. Please post some flight video if you get a chance. All the best and Happy flying!
This board can be made to fly VERY stable. I've used it on many builds and mostly on tricopters. I would suggest having the pitch and roll gains be up to about 75 percent to start on all multirotors then adjust from there. For tricopters, have the yaw gain at about 50 percent and for all other multirotors, have it 90 to 95 percent. Hope this helps and Happy flying!
A warning to those using SimonK's firmware on their ESCs. When you disarm this board it gives a short full throttle pulse. Simons firmware is sensitive enough to detect this and as a result disarming is very unsafe. I found a thread on this issue and it seems that other ESCs work fine.
Three stars because Simons firmware is popular and this should have been tested.
I was using Hobbyking F-20A ESCs flashed with SimonK firmware version tgy_2012-06-10_d8f53c2. The i86 was setup as a Quad X 4 copter on normal mode.
Credit me if this saves your face.

Was up in the air in less than 1 hour. super easy to get everything together. Make sure you get the male to male servo leads so you can connect your RX. Credit if you find helpful. Thanks!!

I think this control board has very dangerous bug. Just sometimes happend symptom that all rotor was rotate full rpm after disarmed action after landed. So, my 3rd quadcopter has been literally distroyed.. It's really danderously.. Anybody has same symptom?

I was used in the X4-copter. The control board was not very stable. Is regrettable. I want to change the firmware.
