Tony ... go into your GUI, level your fram and calibrate the Accel...

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?
 majik01 6522 points
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 ...

Hello Together 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. GPS-works bluetooth-works 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???? Many thanks

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.

To add ... hopefully Mooch's vid for setting up shows up. It has very tips on how to set the board.

Mooch I know you have told me a hundred times but (1) Did you leave your "before Christmas2.3" version in files? (2) why is there a baramoter fix for the current 2.3 version? (3) Is the Christmas version still good?
 Moochasas 1633 points
Hi buddy.... long time no see......... 1 - was it 100 times??? I thought I never repeat myself, myself, myself...... 2 - I still have the b4xmas version running on my MWpro 450 as it does what I want so why change..... I have a 2002 car.... I dont change it every year or 3 as its does the job I need so why pay more for the same...... (referring to props I meant here).......... 3 - to iron out the drift issues some people have been experiencing and just a general tighten up improving the firmware (I believe from what I have read, could be different reasons)...... 4 - yes. its a fantastic version for me...... I will send you a link to my dropbox....... but I need a vid back of you flying it..... deal??? cheers buddy....

Done, get it to my email and I will go down and warm up a battery as the weather is just right for it! Good to hear from you too. I have been following you, gordo and maj when I have had the time. Trying to build a slow FPV fixed wing with six foot wing span as a powered glider for "Field Inspection" right now and will put video up here.
 majik01 6522 points
Hi Newey ... I have a copter running 2.3 Nav and it's behaving as it should for stabilization, alt-hold, PH and RTH ... have not tried Missions yet. Have you tried using MWC 2.3 official first before the MWC 2.3 Nav? 2.3 Official does not have Mission and best to use the MWC MultiwiiConrigurator vs WinGUI ... if you can fly okay with 2.3 official, 2.3 Nav should be okay as well.
 newbee 550mm 114 points
Cool Maj. I have been using the 2.3 "Official" and the appropriate WINGUI as well. So far three flights last night with lights to drive neibors nuts with "UFO" calls to sheriff's office. You just gotta know the Sheriff's office has to love me by now,,,,he he. I have done like someone sugjested ("wonder who that was") and have assigned each their own aux channel. Now it's time for a 10-12 channel radio and transmitters to come into the market, cause that would solve all my other problems as well,,,,lol.
 majik01 6522 points
Newey ... I noticed that the gyro and accel sensors are affected by low temps .. and when that happens, the copter's flight becomes very erratic. Suggested in the MWC site is to acclimatize the sensors in the flight area temps for about 20 minutes then recalibrate gyro/accel sensors. Do low hovers initially to make sure the copter is behaving properly.

As of Sunday night have fixed all. And I have to say,,,knocking on the wooden wall,,,I have alot of respect for 2.3. I love all the added features, and no!,,,have not had the "Keehonays" to build a mission and run it. I still dont know what initiates the mission?,,,an aux channel that activates it maybe? As usual,, the old "dump truck" Quad is being used as the test bed. But so far so good and yes to the aclimation of the sensors. I have varified by disaster and money spent that the BARO has issues at or below 42 degree farenhiet, and it would not surprise me about the gyros are having issues at same.
 majik01 6522 points
Missions found only on MWC 2.3 Nav releases. Mission/waypoints are set in the Map tab in WinGUI 2.3 Nav and an additional flight mode called "MIssion" that initiates waypoints ... search Mooch's vids to get the low down on missions.

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

Great Board. Using Multiwii Dev, and The AdruCoper Firm. Position hold, works... ok. for the price who cares!! Pressure sensor, old, but will work ok with foam mounted over sensor.
