Gaza - can you make the subject line section in the forum topic list wider? It's cutting off the subject field really short.

Had another negative encounter, it's been a few years since the last one, just an uneducated ******, going on about drones being illegal yada yada yada.    :-/
Still that didn't spoil my flying time, had an absolute blast  ~~

better than the last one, need mor testing, but f*cking rain!!

Gaza07

What have they changed in this version from the last one  :rolleyes:

secretman

baro Alt from mahowik (new functions to come, noted)
- baro calibration and some baro mods from Sebbi
- new task scheduler for a better computation time repartition
- better Ublox code detection
- HORIZON mode (mix between ACRO & ANGLE)
- ANGLE mode is the old LEVEL mode
- every UART for everything on MEGA
- cool GUI enhancement from magnetron
- spektrum bind button for spektrum receiver (Danal)
- telemetry cosmetic
- bug correction for servos on MEGA
- failsafe is more robust

I';ve just tested the new release with the quadcopter sitting on my bed. I haven';t flown with it yet.

I';ve used these settings with my ublox v1 (from rctimer);

And the quadcopter has connected with 4 satellites just sitting on my bed. The weather is bad and i live in a terraced house so i should hopefully get much better results outside later.

I';ve copied the whole GPS section from my multiwii config file there but the changes I';ve made in terms of commenting in the ublox lines and setting the speed to 57600 from 115200 are all in the top section of the code.

So Chris,this upgrade is a good one,what else has it addressed,yours,Marty. :scotland:

Gaza07

Hi Marty this release seems to be a big one as in the gps now works with out the fix for ublox modules, and the telemetry now works through any com port, I have connected to the gui on my pc and the android version on my phone with the blue tooth dongle connected to com 3 on the flight controller,
this has to be a huge step forwards for multi wii  :bravo:

teslahed

I';ve just been out testing the new release with GPS position hold and return to home. Position hold worked to the nearest 4 meters (or there abouts) and return to home worked the first time i tested it and had to be aborted on the second attempt when it looked like some trees where going to get in the way.

When the weather is better i will have to do some more testing. This is with the old rctimer u-Blox V1 GPS so people with newer hardware may get better results.

I will have to try it again at 115200. I was running it at 57600 same as before.

Thank you all for your replies,this is good news,multiwii is going forward,Marty. :scotland: :scotland:

I';ve reuploaded the new code only with the GPS set to the higher speed;

#define GPS_BAUD   115200

and my ublox V1 GPS seems to be working fine. It';s detected 3 satellites after about 5 mins just sat on my bed inside where the GPS reception is quite poor. I haven';t been able to test it outside because the weather is too bad.

Edit - 10 mins in and I';m up to 5 satellites!

Thats good Chris,ile send you my Nav position,and you can fly me up a nice pint of John Smith';s bitter please,lol Marty, :scotland:

Thats good news then as the original fix only pushed the gps to 57600  ~~

if i understand this correct, this is a new(er) version of multiwii, so i can replace this with my old version? and that the gps baudrate (from my rctimer gps v2) now doesn';t have to be changed ?

Gaza07

Hi Marc this is a beta test version and not a final release so your probably better off sticking with the release version you currently have, as the new version could have some nasty bugs,
Also the gps settings mentioned above are for serial gps users yours is a I2c gps and is setup differently,
The again if you really want to have a play with the beta firmware there is no reason you shouldn';t other than just being a bit cautious  ~~

I';ve just been out testing the latest code with GPS - it was quite windy but it was holding to the nearest 4 meters and return to home was working impressively well.

The barometer seems to be working very well also.

I need to do some more testing and get my quadcopter flying a bit better but at the moment I';m pretty pleased.

I got a video of me testing the GPS with the new code;



Seems to work pretty well.

A very nice test flight there Chris very stable and the position hold looks good,the altitude hold works fine to even at the lower height, very well done you got to be pleased with those results  :bravo:
