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!

Can anybody please name me the article number or description of an article here that senses the battery voltage for this board?

Ok, I'm beginning to like this board. I have successfully set it up with MPNG and Mission Planner for RATE/ACRO mode and STAB mode. It seems to hold decently without oscillations. Now I'm looking at setting up for ATL-HOLD, and I'm a little hesitant to get started. Firstly it'll help to know what is a good starting point values for Throttle Accel, Throttle Rate and Altitude Hold values (MP ver 1.3.12). Secondly is it necessary to cover the barometer with foam, if so how to go about it Third at what throttle % do we switch over to ALT-H mode, 40% ? Here's my configuration MPNG 2.8 R3 with UBLOX NEO-6M Mission Planner 1.3.12 RATE PID's: 0.1169, 0.6690, 0.0091 STAB PID's: 3.8940, 3.8940, 4.5000 Finally hat should you assign CH6 for in-flight ALT-H tuning?

This thing is making me crazy The extend board is really cool It has worked but remains elusive Do a search for Crius Extend Board and tell me you take on that Really clean install All the best JDH

Hooked the extend board to a Uart and got a good conection to uBlox u-center The GPS show a good fix 9600 baud rate Changed to 38400 and save to the GPS That all said Still no joy when hooked up to the Crius AIO Must be in the mega piratesNG code I set the correct board - GPS protocol - Baud rate etc Still NFG Another small issue I am having is I can't remember how to use the FIND in the arduino IDE I know there is away to search the code by key words but it doesn't work when I try Any ideas All. The best JDH

in MPNG by default gps settings are 38400 baud , NMEA protocol port com2 Note when connecting GPS dirrectly to FC you need to connect GPSRX-TX2 and GPSTX-RX2 (noter cross tx/rx)

Aghh yes, Ctrl F = search current file... Also curious why project scope search is missing

I purchased an extend board with a Ublox 6H gps Finally had it work Now not recognizing the gps, the lights on the gps blink but the main board is not showing that it is searching one led A blinking meaning disarmed Should be A blinking and C blinking Disarmed and searching Anyone have experience with the extend board? Thanks JDH

GPS do not work indoors. Provide clear sky first.. second... cold start requires sometimes up to 5 minutes.. (depends on conditions) be patient ... third ... you need to set same baudrate for gps itself and gps board in flight controller. You do not mention what firmware you use. Multiwii requires enabling GPS in config (recompile and reflash FC after chnages)..

oops... I mean same baud rate for FC gps PORT (not board) and NEO6 GPS module...

You are correct by expecting A and C LEDs blinking for few seconds i.e indicating a GPS module has been configured. A fix will have only the Amber LED blinking a pattern, showing number of Satellites fixed. But, you must have the firmware configured for I2C GPS too. It's not Plug N Play.

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!
