How to program a Meduino Pro Mini with FTDI / USB Adapter

Hi there, have this Meduino Pro Mini, an Arduino clone that misses the usb port in favour of an FTDI port , an I2C bus, and all normal pins you could expect and find on any small-duino. This one lefts apart the usb port: actually an onboard USB port (and relative adapter like Arduino Uno) should be used ideally just once, in order to upload the code, or in rare other occasions like interfacing it with a Raspberry pi without using the gpio bus, and similar occasions. This said, let’s look closer this board and please, forgive my soldering skills while you look at the image. Continue reading “How to program a Meduino Pro Mini with FTDI / USB Adapter”

[ITA] Multiwii MWC 10DOF cinese (aka GY-80) e Arduino: connessioni e test iniziali

Ho deciso di tradurre questo articolo in italiano poiché ho notato che molti dei lettori sono per l’ appunto, italiani.
Ho ricevuto la mia nuova i2c sensors breakout board

Questa è quello che nella configurazione del software MultiWii viene chiamato GY_80 o GY-80.
Non sembra essere indicato il marchio del produttore o il modello / seriale. Quello che si conosce sono i nomi dei singoli componenti utilizzati per questa scheda Continue reading “[ITA] Multiwii MWC 10DOF cinese (aka GY-80) e Arduino: connessioni e test iniziali”

Low altitude hold, auto takeoff, autolanding with kk or Hk v2.1 + Arduino + Sonar

This post is under constant update until i find a complete solution

I’m publishing it even if it is not complete because i’ve found some working (into compiler) code and probably there are a lot of people out there in my same situation and we can help each other. So…

UPDATES 2012-12-06

  • I made all connections
  • Reviewed the code and renamed vars so you can actually understand while you read
  • I compiled and uploaded the sketch (the first one has errors)
  • I added an LED for signaling the status changes
  • I’m working on thelemetry (battery voltage)
  • I switched to a new ping library
  • I released new code
  • I updated this discussion about arduino + sonar/ping + kk/hk board
  • It works with any configuration (tricopter, Y4, Y6, xcopter, quadcopter, hexcopter, octocopter, 12 rotors and so…)

HK V2.1Altitude Hold with arduino and sonar/ping sensor

Yes i have to admit it: last time i tried to take off just with goggles, it crashed. 🙁
It was frustrating also for the poor #4 motor that lost all the small balls of the shaft bearing, consequently grinded within magnet and coils: corps everywhere. didn’t cry, yet. Continue reading “HK V2.1Altitude Hold with arduino and sonar/ping sensor”

Arduino as flight simulator interface for any rc receiver

Important Update

If you are going to use this code, please read on comments, you will find a better written code, shorter and with no conversions. Thanks to Fabien.

I have left my usb adapter for my RC Radio to flight simulator to my friend Simone.
I have a spare arduino (any arduino is suitable, until it as at least the usb port, obviously 🙂 ) and a spare turnigy receiver with damaged antenna (max range 5 meters, enough for the coach). Continue reading “Arduino as flight simulator interface for any rc receiver”

Multiwii MWC, Chinese 10DOF (codename GY-80) and Arduino Nano V.3: hooking and testing

 

This image shows how to connect the pro-mini to the gy-80Well, i just received my i2c sensors breakout board

Here it is what the Multiwii software configuration calls GY_80 or GY-80.
There is no brand, no model, no serial.
We know something just about single main components/chip: Continue reading “Multiwii MWC, Chinese 10DOF (codename GY-80) and Arduino Nano V.3: hooking and testing”
