Tbh I've been really busy, not had much time to fly anything and with conditions being crap, hopefully in the new year I'll have some new projects on the go, mostly to do with HAM radio, will certainly fly again soon. FTR I hate FB too   :D Merry Christmas

Warning/indicator LED's and buzzer

Hi guys,
Isit possible to wire some LEDs into the aio pro board so that armed status and gps fix is easily seen , also a buzzer would be good?

Simular to this http://diydrones.com/profiles/blogs/led-low-battery-warning-on



Hi Paul,

You can connect your own buzzer, but you have to be careful that you don';t overload and damage the FC board. This is why it says on the board plans not to connect a buzzer directly. The boards are normally 5v, the buzzer can vary but as an example might be 3v. So, there is a 2v surplus. You have to use Ohm';s Law to work out what resistor you need to use the buzzer. Ohm';s Law states Resistance = Source Voltage - Sensor Voltage / Current of Sensor. So, FC board is 5v - Buzzer 3v = 2v / Buzzer 10mah = 200ohm Resistor. You can put the resistor either side of the buzzer cables. Once you';ve done this, just enable the BUZZER code in your FC software. I';m in the middle of enhancing the standard MultiWii software to add tones and volume to indicate things.

Good luck.
