Great News Multipilot32 Support VROS and libmaple for monotask no OS application :)

I'm doing today some test ... now is not only available the USB functionality and i2c all the other function work fine.In the next day will be available the i2c support.

So now is possible to start to check the ArmFox on your MP32 platform :)

In the next day i put on repo the lib and source code. if you need more info contact me in private message.

Dear Friends,

today i finish to compile port the Arducopter NG 32 to his new cpu ... that is a great news for me , and for my wife ,too .. these night i finish to work on the project normally around the 3.00 AM ;)

So in the middle of the next week i doing an webinar .. i found this beautiful platform called freewebinar that we can test , It support until 150 people connected . I hope that we don't have all that problem that we had with skype in last presentation .. so in the Webinar ... i presente , the ide , the library and the code that you had see in  my video in this months ... i hope that for that time the last firmware will be flyable ....

great news!!!!!!!

i am a question:

where can i buy multipilot?

hi loic,
I sent you a PM to answer your question.

Elisa

thanks you very much lisa!

now i wait that the software come in :)

i hope you will create your own imu shield because arducopter(apm shield) has lots of problems of quality!!on top of that it s very expansive!!a imu like fussi on rcgroup would be perfect

Hi Elisa,

This sounds perfect.  I'd love to hear how I might get my hands on one of these to start doing some testing as well.  Are they for sale yet?

Dear Friends,

this night I upload on repository the first revision of Arducopter NG for Multipilot32 , is not yet flyiable , but i think that tomorrow i can try to fly it :)

So going on repo in download section and check the code : http://code.google.com/p/multipilot32/downloads/list

Goodnight

Roberto

thanks roberto

i am waiting for the first video before to order one!!i like this board and i hope you will have a more cheaper imu shield!!!!!!!!!!!!i know you work hard

Dear Friends,

i upload last revision of library and code on repo ... Now I update also the doc I found a small error on id of pwm output port .

This revision is ok for PWM is mapped on PWM_OUTPUT0 ,1,2,4 the Motor1,2,3,4 The Pmw Output 3 is not yet right mapped.

I'm using PPMSUM radio rx connected on PWM_IN4

The main bug to solve before to doing first fly is to understand why don load the parameter when i power on quad i need to initialize it using Arducopter Configurator.

Here you can found my last update
