  • Saleem: There's some kinda shiny black plastic or looks like smooth plastic where it is scuffed on a corner but the ev800 seem to have s dull rubbery smooth coating on them
    Today at 19:58:01
  • insx: Just plastic
    Today at 19:50:46

    Today at 16:40:23
  • Saleem: Just a quality issue,they have smooth rubber coating and 1 corner it seems it's rubbed down on

    Today at 15:40:01
  • insx: I guess the Eachine camera only goes up to something like 30 degrees. If you like to fly really fast, I guess it's not enough. Or is this just what happens when you fly low?

    September 25, 2016, 19:19:19
  • insx: Imax B6 seconded. I had a similar experience with the Banggood charger and ended up with a dead cell. I'm pretty sure it's the charger's fault. Bin it ASAP.
    September 25, 2016, 19:18:55
  • DarrellW: [link]
    September 25, 2016, 19:17:48
  • DarrellW: @Stu an imax b6 is a very good option but make sure you get the genuine one, also they come in 240/12V or 12V only options so make sure you either get the mains dc one or get a dc one and power supply.
    September 25, 2016, 19:14:54
  • Stupotsthelot: What do u suggest then. Just keep an eye on it when charging and manually stop it at 12.6 like I had done earlier?
    September 25, 2016, 19:05:58
  • DarrellW: It's much easier to adjust to get it slop free and in the right position, don't very often have to trim them.
    September 25, 2016, 19:04:48
  • DarkButterfly: sounds good, I used to use wire links, will need to go back to it again as they worked very well ~~
    September 25, 2016, 19:02:01
  • DarrellW: I use wire links or CF rod, makes it very positive and unless you manage to strip the servo gears very reliable, I don't use metal gear servos any more, just carbonite or nylon gears but go up to 16-18gm ones
    September 25, 2016, 18:59:08
  • DarkButterfly: I used to run that setup on my talon tri, but the ball links were crap and both let go in flight causing a very awesome spin-crash, that I never filmed
    September 25, 2016, 18:55:29
  • DarrellW: @Stu, that's not the best charger, it's very basic.
    September 25, 2016, 18:55:04
  • DarrellW: I've got a double sided servo arm with connections off both sides to the yaw platform - Push/Pull.
    September 25, 2016, 18:53:51
  • DarkButterfly: I'm not a fan of direct drive yaw mechs, I try to use links if possible
    September 25, 2016, 18:52:26
  • DarkButterfly: ah okay ::)

Why do you use a UBEC? doesn't the board accept a 12v input from 3s lipos.

The reason for the Ubec is when I had the Black Vortex and it had a voltage reg on board it would get very hot when connected to a 3s pack so I used to use the Ubec on that and nothing ever got warm never mind hot  :rolleyes:
I just think its safer to connect that way  ~~

Hi Sakis your rabbit gps will deff work with the AOIP and I have tried MegapirateNG on the AIOP and it runs very well but wanted to concentrate my efforts in to sorting multi wii out first  ~~

If your getting one and going to use your rabbit gps then you should down load the firmware I already patched for the ublox gps with no eeprom like the rabbit gps and the cn06 v1  ~~

Excellent job Gary. :goodpost:

Having just ordered one of these AIO Pro boards, is there something else I need to hook up the power to it, or is it specific to your config

Is there a UK warehouse option available, I have an order "waiting" so would be useful to be able to add to it.

Tried to follow the manual...copy the arduino  1.0.4 to the docs folder, make an Arduino folder in the docs folder, unzip there the MultiWii_2_2 _AIOP.zip, added the docs/arduino folder in the files/preferences as sketchbook folder, and if I go to the files/sketchbook I can select only the Multiwii_AIOP / MultiwiiConf and it opens the config.h ONLY... ??? so no other tabs there...

what I'm doing wrong??

Many thanks,
B

Hi Gaza,

Could it be that the pdf page 2 incorrectly shows pin 32 as being a cam roll (and pin 33 as cam pitch) when pin 32 is a buzzer/pilotlamp pin? i.e. PORTC Bit 5?

Pin 33 isn't used unless you're not using the "#define CRIUS_AIO_PRO_V1", in which case it defaults servos 1-3 as cam trig -> pin 33 and pin 46, cam roll -> pin 35 and pin 45 , cam pitch -> pin 34 and pin 44. The "#define CRIUS_AIO_PRO_V1" just rewrites the servos 1-3 default pins so they are pins 44, 45 and 46 respectively.


from def.h:
Code: [Select]
#if defined(CRIUS_AIO_PRO_V1)
  #define MPU6050
  #define HMC5883
  #define MS561101BA
  #define ACC_ORIENTATION(X, Y, Z)  {imu.accADC[ROLL]  = -X; imu.accADC[PITCH]  = -Y; imu.accADC[YAW]  =  Z;}
  #define GYRO_ORIENTATION(X, Y, Z) {imu.gyroADC[ROLL] =  Y; imu.gyroADC[PITCH] = -X; imu.gyroADC[YAW] = -Z;}
  #define MAG_ORIENTATION(X, Y, Z)  {imu.magADC[ROLL]  =  X; imu.magADC[PITCH]  =  Y; imu.magADC[YAW]  = -Z;}
  #define MPU6050_I2C_AUX_MASTER // MAG connected to the AUX I2C bus of MPU6050
  #undef INTERNAL_I2C_PULLUPS
  #define I2C_SPEED 400000L         //400kHz fast mode
  //servo pins on AIO board is at pins 44,45,46, then release pins 33,34,35 for other usage
  //eg. pin 33 on AIO can be used for LEDFLASHER output
  #define SERVO_1_PINMODE            pinMode(44,OUTPUT);        // TILT_PITCH
  #define SERVO_1_PIN_HIGH           PORTL |= 1<<5;
  #define SERVO_1_PIN_LOW            PORTL &= ~(1<<5);
  #define SERVO_2_PINMODE            pinMode(45,OUTPUT);        // TILT_ROLL
  #define SERVO_2_PIN_HIGH           PORTL |= 1<<4;
  #define SERVO_2_PIN_LOW            PORTL &= ~(1<<4);
  #define SERVO_3_PINMODE            pinMode(46,OUTPUT);        // CAM TRIG
  #define SERVO_3_PIN_HIGH           PORTL |= 1<<3;
  #define SERVO_3_PIN_LOW            PORTL &= ~(1<<3);
#endif



buzzer and servo defines in "all the Mega types" section:

#if defined PILOTLAMP
    #define    PL_PIN_ON    PORTC |= 1<<5;
    #define    PL_PIN_OFF   PORTC &= ~(1<<5);
  #else
    #define BUZZERPIN_ON               PORTC |= 1<<5;
    #define BUZZERPIN_OFF              PORTC &= ~(1<<5);
  #endif
...
Code: [Select]
#define SERVO_1_PINMODE            pinMode(34,OUTPUT);pinMode(44,OUTPUT); // TILT_PITCH - WING left
  #define SERVO_1_PIN_HIGH           PORTC |= 1<<3;PORTL |= 1<<5;
  #define SERVO_1_PIN_LOW            PORTC &= ~(1<<3);PORTL &= ~(1<<5);
  #define SERVO_2_PINMODE            pinMode(35,OUTPUT);pinMode(45,OUTPUT); // TILT_ROLL  - WING right
  #define SERVO_2_PIN_HIGH           PORTC |= 1<<2;PORTL |= 1<<4;
  #define SERVO_2_PIN_LOW            PORTC &= ~(1<<2);PORTL &= ~(1<<4);
  #define SERVO_3_PINMODE            pinMode(33,OUTPUT); pinMode(46,OUTPUT); // CAM TRIG  - alt TILT_PITCH

Hi Felix the legends used were just clones of what is printed on underside of the actual board but the manual is very old now and could do with being updated to also include the AIOP v2,
You dont want a job do you  :rolleyes:  ~~
I have been planning on doing a new manual for some time but its just getting round to it if I do create a new one I would like to have some one like your self check it over for errors  ~~

Hi,

Sure, Send the doc file my way and I'll update it and get it back to you. I'm no graphics whiz but more than happy to do some updates. I was also intending to do the voltage and current monitoring side of things too.. need to get a round tuit  :rolleyes: I have both a v1.1 and a v2 board.. so can add in the relevant pieces/differences for both or split them out to separate docs or whatever....
