The MultiWii PRO is a gyro/accelerometer based flight controller that is loaded with features. This version of the MultiWii supports direct connection of a GPS module (package includes MTK 3329 GPS module) allowing for ultra-precise positioning functionality. With expandability options and full programmability, this device can control just about any type of aircraft. This is the ideal flight controller for your multi-rotor aircraft.

HI Mooch Hox ... instead of having you scroll downnnnnn for the Minim post, me just started a new thread. I have a Minim unit with separate power circuits (can be joined is wanted). Anywhooo ... tested it like the first unit ... Test 1 - without powering the Amtel side ... no video. target=_blank>Test 1
Data logger .. for Multirotors, you can use WinGUi connected wirelessly to the copter with an APC 220 (I think you already have the APC unit) and set WinGUI (GUI settings tab to set paremeters) to record flight data based on what you want to record. Data logger using the Amtel / Arduino is different ... that is used more for debugging purposes to download error codes. About my job ... I am a bean counter ...
okeey, i worked with arduino, python, c ,c,linux,amtel and some other program languages, i learn it on school.....about APC220 i have it after the crash he wouldn't work anymore so i have to solve that :s.... about you hobby is there a page where i see your Multi-copters etc.
3rd ... Dagu Playful Puppy ... Arduino quadpod with 10 servos ... IR head tracker sensor. Will be changing to metal gear servos and updating the code for slightly slower and more natural movement .... 2nd next would be a Arkady based Arduino self-balancing robot with IR remote .... 1st a 550 quadcopter with BL gimbals and Astak HD camera .. wooded booms (yep wood) for aerial vids ... 750 motors 11 inch GF slo fly ... hovers for 9 min on a 3000 aAh 40C ... will upgrade to a 3-axis BL when the parts arrive.
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
