Multiwii and Megapirate AIO Flight Controller w/FTDI (ATmega 2560) V2.0

Multiwii and Megapirate AIO Flight Controller w/FTDI  (ATmega 2560) V2.0
Multiwii and Megapirate AIO Flight Controller w/FTDI  (ATmega 2560) V2.0

This board features a multiple serial interface as well as a dedicated I2C interface. You can now plug in a GPS directly, and you still have extra ports for other external devices. In addition to that, the new ATmega 2560 has more IO pins so it can both read the PWM signal from your receiver and it has enough PWM outputs to control the ESCs directly without the need to do the PWM signal in software. 

This controller even has a MicroUSB port right on the board, no need to attach an extra FTDI USB interface.

The motion sensing side features a new generation MEMS Gyro, a MPU6050 by InvenSense, which has the MEMS Gyro / Accelerometer sensor on a single chip. There’s also a 3-axis magnetometer and a barometer sensor with a resolution of 0.01 millibar – approximately a 10 cm height difference.

Interested in GPS functionality? Well this is one of the most cost effective ways to get started - simply add a 10Hz GPS module (coming soon) and you’re good to go!

thanks, I'll try, I have a lot to learn. unfortunately in Italy there are few people willing to share their experiences.
Stefano  1 points - 3/5/2015
good morning to all, my experiences with multirotori were all RTF. I recently purchased through hobbyking a quad with MultiWii megapirate ... I ask for help for configuration. thanks in advance

Start with mauals under files tab. There are 2 manuals one for Multiwii firmware (one preloaded by default) other is for MegapirateNG firmware (alternative firmware cloned from APM arducopter project, requires reflashing)... Depending on what firmware you will chose you can find answers in "MultiWii wiki" (google for it) or on Megapirate. com site...

I have seen some videos using follow my while skiing or does it work?...were I could find instructions or how to? I think I just found a new utility for my new drone with this FC...hope it works how I think...With my phone ant it could follow would be really nice.. Thanks
 v_max 4596 points
Possible with megapirate firmware... You need 3DRadio link (PRODUCT ID: 9387000030-0) and DroidPlanner2 application on android smartphone... or mission planner on notebook. Smartphone or notebook send's it GPS coordinates to FC via 3DRadio kit.. Megapirate firmware control copter and camera gimbal. For megapirate firmware installation and set-up read docs on megapirate. com site. As megapirate is ported version of Arducopter most how-to for APM setup is applicable. In part fo 'follow me mode' it's better desribed in APM Arducopter docs.

Thanks... A bit difucult for now...go uphill on the bike for hour and a half...and then go down with all the things that you need...probably I would have another accident or lose the drone...dont like those 2 options... But I love the idea to make a video of me doing downhill
 v_max 4596 points
you have no other option.. to follow you quad need to know your coordinates (as well as it's own). Simpliest your coordinates source is android smaptphone with DroidPlanner2 app installed. But you also need to transmitt your coords to quad... chipiest way is bluetooth but it has quite limited range .. if you need more then 10m stable connectivity then the only option is 3DRadio link. This controller is not best choice for APM firmware... despite MegapirateNG which this controller can run is port of original APM firmware it do not support all 100% features of APM. Some are not supported due to hardware differences. I'd recommend use 'regular' APM fc boards for example APM 2.5 - 2.7 or APMmini 3.1 (not here) can be found at same price range. But apms are much better documented and easier to use. and they are 100% support all features

Thanks,... What would happend if I have the phone inside the car at a track...The speed of the car is much faster that the drone...can it be programable with the gimbal so the camera could follow me? Or move...but the gimball following the car... Its a big and fast circuit
 v_max 4596 points
It will try to follow you as defined .. If you move faster then coper will TRY to follow... Read this article 3drobotics. com /follow-me-info ... It explains a lot... But agian... this controller is not BEST choice for APM firmwares as it requires ported MPNG instead of original firmware...
 Rolo GTI 11 points
Thanks...sorry I didnt told you..but I have also bought the APM 2.6 thats it is also on is way home
 v_max 4596 points
classic APM 2.6 is too big and heavy for my taste... compare with miniApm3.1 which has THE SAME functinality as it's BIG brother but have only 35x35mm board size..
 Rolo GTI 11 points
I will take a look at it Thanks!!

How to use this flight controller
 v_max 4596 points
There are 2 manuals under files tab one for Multiwii firmware, Other for Megapirate firmware... which explains how to upload firmware and connections. More ifo can be found on Megapirate site for MPNG firmware and in Multiwii project wiki for MWI firmware

hi how to use the optical flow and ultrasonic sensor for altitude hold with multi 2.3.
 v_max 4596 points
Forget it... Quoting multiwii 2.3 code. "/* Sonar */ // for visualization purpose currently - no control code behind". Optical flow sensors are also not supported by MWI 2.3
 r4444 2 points
what about megapirate, can i use it as i am not using the GPS.
 v_max 4596 points
MPNG without GPS? Sounds funny..
Never tried this on MPNG... mainly because pretty sure sonar is useless Sonar is too limited range of 2-5m, highly dependent on surface dispersion properties and compatible with APM sonar types are rather expensive (over $70).... As well as optial flow sensors is only improve position hold... do not think I need it really...

Opened up my FC today and wasnt really happy. I got someones returned board. HK didnt even take the time to remove all the the previous persons double sided tape from the back of the board. After reading all these reviews I am wondering if it is worth my time to figure out which version I have and dive in. Man those KK2 boards are making this thing look like a nightmare! All these features better be worth the time investment.

Top, no problems with it. I use it with Multiwii Software. Altitude hold, Level mode, mag, bluetooth, gps hold and return to home, all works fine with high precision. Nice Board... Altitude sensor must be covered with foam... Gps is a Locosys from a Tiny OSD 2 with serial interface, 10Hz and 112500 data transfer rate... You can use one gps modul for Flightcontroller and Osd (it needs only TX from Gps Modul)

It seems that version 2.0 doesn't have the problem of the 1.0 batch. I am using it with MegarPirateNG, NEO-6M and a bluetooth module. No problems whatsoever. If seems that HK deleted all documents in the "File" section, so search youtube for rcjoseb and you will find some great videos how to configure it. Cheers!
