- How much does it cost?
Common questions I hear many times about this software.
MultiWii is a software founded by AlexinParis on RC Groups
The software helps and aids in stability for a flying vessel – I do not specify type(plane/multi-rotor) as the soft is still under development and more features are added as I type. Compared to my 1st Tricopter based on 4 HK401B gyros (A common approach) this is much better and also cheap using commonly available Wii parts.
The software also has 2 outputs for servos so you can have a camera always horizontal (or to your liking) independent of your manoeuvres in air.
To start you need an Arduino Pro mini(the motherboard/processor/memory), a FTDI adapter so you can program the Arduino using an USB cable.
To this you need a sensor, a 3 axis gyro (this replaces 4 HK401gyros alone) and in comes the WiiMotionPlus.
A cheap wii-addon that has a 3axis gyro inside.
Now you need your flying vessel and your TX/RX of minimum 4 channels.
However – if you want to step up in flying vessel abilities you need to add more sensors.
If you want auto level feature you need to add a Wii Nunchuck as well (still very cheap)
With this you also get the feature of camera gimbals – holds camera level by 2 servos.
This can also be done with 4 channels but if you add 1 or 2 you can have more options by turning features on and off.
I will try to keep this page as simple as possible and if there is something you don’t know what it is Please post a comment and I’ll explain even more
