go here ... "h t t p :// fotoflygarn. blogspot. com/ 2014/ 04 / multiwii-gps-airplane. h t m l " take out the spaces. Airplanes have been done before ... but if you do not read RTH or PH, a simple flight stabilizer will be ok.
Help....newbie here, somehow managed to break off micro usb hub from board, managed to upload sketch, but was still in the testing stages, is there another way to load new sketches....ex. ftdi ? another note, bought a second used board also mwii, cleared eeprom, loaded new sketch, but keep getting message "make sure you have selected right com port" any help greatly appreaciated.
Heli .. you can use the Serial 0 port beside the Rx pins. 5v, grd and cross connect the Rx and Tx pins. Your new board might have a different serial adapter chip and could need the proper driver. Look as your Device Manager LPT and COM port .. check your USB serial port has a proper COM assigned to it.
Psssstt Mooch .. the Witey 32 Acro Pro boards now supports Sonar ... not tried it yet but I've seen the super secret video (I kid) of how to enable the cheap HS 04 on the board via CLI ... might bring back the smaller board to the 250 ... again.
Yes to the Cleanflight configurator but take note the latest ver does not have Sonar as an option although the Sonar sensor turns green ... Tested it out in freezing temps and the baro went loco in the coco ... No to the mini Hex ... based on my experience with the Hex, it is more "difficult" to fly and is more susceptible to wind .. looks cool though.
Awesome morning flying today...... took out the blackout with the cobras and ran a 4S through it.... (how fast is fast??)....... did the final commissioning of the witeking with my new Graupner MX16 radio....... ran the 330 with the 1.3ghz FPV (aint that the bees knees)...... and took Slick out for a stroll.......... then came the heat...... 45 degrees C here at the moment....so its the pool, a slurpy and a snooze...... its been a freakin hot hectic week.......
If you look at the picture of the board in the ad .. the two I2C ports are those found at the bottom edge of the controller ... This where you would connect external shields to the board that use the I2C protocol..
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
