I have a MultiWii PRO ver 2.3 which I'm having trouble getting to talk to my Win 8.1 PC (64bit). I found this exchange between Trevor and Moochasas here (my problem seemed to be similar): "Hi Trev, yes you need the drivers for the board. what you are looking for is CP210x_VCP_windows..." [downloaded that] and this: " "In the purple file section above check out the 6th file down and the 2nd last on the page [did that]..... there is also a great vid on line showing everything you need to know" I downloaded and installed the exe file in CP210x_VCP_windows v6.7, but the response I get when I try to run CP210xVCPInstaller_x64.exe is that the "device driver wizard was unable to find any drivers designed for your machine" and the installation will not complete. I have gotten a lot of help here so far, can anyone tell me what I am missing. Thanks, Paul

use the 32bit version I have 8.1 can only get the 32 bit version to work if you still have issues then you need to turn off driver signing.

After disabling driver signing, when I try to run CP210xVCPInstaller_x86.exe, I get a message that I have to run the 64 bit version on this machine. Still not workee.

Which Win 7 Pro still runs in my machines (plus XP Pro and Ubuntu) ... drivers and application compatibility challenges should not be game stoppers .. but are.

Maybe I should try one of my win7 machines

We should be thankful that Microsoft stays out of this hobby. Imagine a Microsoft OS on a flight controller. Too sad to laugh at.

Majik! Genius!! I used a Vista PC and the drivers loaded with no problem.

Gordon - Exactly Right! I don't easily give up but my head was beginning to hurt on this one. The pain is receding. Whooda thought I'd have to use a nine year old lap top to get into this thing.

Moochasas, caught a config.h file in the file and saw that AP_MODE is disabled. When I carry it in my MultiwiI pro with disabled AP_MODE giving this error. Could you help me?
 danilo 6 points
target=_blank> this error
 majik01 6412 points
Word of caution ...roll your own sketch ... meaning download from source repository , uncomment the needed lines, check compile and upload (clear EEPROM first). AP_Mode error is not common and should not show up if the proper GPS lines in config.h are uncommented. Please remind us of the GPS unit you are using and the lines in the GPS section you uncommented.

use this www.link set GPS UBLOX 38400 AP_MODE believe this is having influence on PH.
 majik01 6412 points
Use MWC 2.3 or 2.2 official for now. Download from Multiwii source. Uncomment your frame, uncomment the sensor. For Ublox GPS uncomment, a) Ublox, b) Serial 2, c) Baud Rate 38400. Clear EEPROM before uploading. Uncomment motor_stop so your motors do not spin on arm ...
 danilo 6 points
see this sketch for me: www.link AP FlightMode ********************************** /  * * * * / * Temporarily Disables GPS_HOLD_MODE to be able to make it possible to adjust the position Hold-When moving the sticks. * /  * * * * // # define AP_MODE 40 // Create a deadspan for GPS. I have to enable or disable AP_MODE?
 majik01 6412 points
Read the comment above ... get a new sketch ... we'll show you the bling-blng later .... uncomment only the GPS lines suggested. Do not stray from config.h ... you have been warned ...(joking ....)
 danilo 6 points
have carried all sketches MultiWii, enabling only the sensors and GPS UBLOX, and nothing of having a legal PH! Add me if you have (https://****facebook****/danilo.lima.7543)

This board has good position hold characteristics ... get it to fly steady first ...
 danilo 6 points
target=_blank> GUI, this setting would be to have a GPS hold right?
 majik01 6412 points
This should give you an idea. With MWC 2.3 it would be a good idea to give alt-hold its own switch as that command has some very interesting features - it takes over throttle control.
 danilo 6 points
because its GUI has more control options in settings?
 majik01 6412 points
Individual sensor control allows the flexibility of enabling discreet modes with or without the influence of others. Say you want to take 360 deg panoramic video sweeps. a) Hover then increase height - no flight modes enabled initially.b) enable Position hold to stay in one place c) enable Alt-hold to stay at the same height d) Enable mag hold so you can turn 360 degrees. After you are done, you want to descend and keep making 360 videos ... but still keep your position so avoid drift. 1) You turn off alt-hold to go down, 2) keep mag hold and keep turning in one spot. 3) When nearing the ground enable alt-hold again, with PH and Mag enabled for a last 360 degree video pan. Then land.
 majik01 6412 points
Opps .. I meant Head Free ... not Mag Hold ... the copter will not turn on Mag Hold ...

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
