MWC MultiWii SE Standard Edition 4-axis Flight Control Board QUADX with FTDI Basic Breakout

Please be aware of this when comparing prices !  

There are two types of MWC Controllers, this one that we sell is the SE version or Standard edition - but there are cheaper ones called MultiWii Lite, these have a number of functions missing, are less stable than the SE version, and if you buy one, you'll regret it in the long run and wished you went for the SE version in the first place ! 

MWC is the  abbreviation for MultiWii Copter, this open source program's original author  Alex, is a French programmer, and after two years of joint efforts of many enthusiasts, the MWC program become increasingly better with maturity, and has now become very popular all over the world, and definitely is a more cost-effective flight controller compared to others on the market costing 5 times as much,

Crius the manufacturers, launched the MWC model series of flight controllers, so that multi-axis aircraft MWC fans can easily access the software and get good flying results, without the high cost of selling the product, and through the MWC program to control the hardware platform, can achieve a variety of multi-rotor aircraft, resulting in high-quality flights, flexibility can be adjusted so that you can set up a very stable or very flexible, agile and aerobatic Multi-copter, which is great for FPV or stunt flying and many different styles of flying as you needs progress.

With the same program being open source compared to a KKBoard or ACM, MWC's is more stable with much better  at producing a stable flight performance, the flight skills required for a novice are that much lower, and the debugging process is more intuitive. 

A Dedicated MWC GUI program supplied with this controller ( as shown below), allows you to easily change the parameters, and visually observe the PID parameter changes, flight control signal input / output status, sensor / switch-state, as well as the aircraft attitude and heading sensor signal state of each control -  all of which makes it a whole lot easier to set up !.

MultiWii SE Standard Edition supports the following aircraft models:

GIMBAL -------- PTZ stabilizer independent (non-flight control purposes)
BICOPTER ------ 2-axis aircraft Avatar
Tricopter ----- Y3 (Y-type 3-axis)
QUADP --------- 4-axis + classic mode
QUADX --------- 4-axis mode
Y4 ------------ Y-type four-axis
Y6 ------------ Y-type 6-axis
HEX6 ---------- 6 axis + mode
HEX6X --------- 6-axis mode
FLYING WING --- flying wing with a (non-multi-axis machine, the program is in testing phase).

The Tool to connect the computer via FTDI, allows you to cahnge the flight mode and can be easily converted at any time. XCopter mode is the default setting when shipped

MultiWii SE Standard Edition Hardware configuration:

ATMEGA328P microcontroller
ITG3205 three-axis digital gyroscope
BMA180 triaxial accelerometer
BMP085 pressure sensor
HMC5883L axis magnetoresistive sensor (electronic compass)

MWC is a mainstream hardware platform with a combination of commonly used settings, which is similar in operation and equivalent to Arduino Pro Mini and FFIMU 0.35 9DOF IMU sensor combined, integrated design makes working with the controller very easy, and will allow you to create a more stable flight control.
MWC SE in addition to the necessary input / output ports, also allows a variety of expansion interfaces to be connected, some modules can be used for FPV OSD (on Screen dispaly), a LCD liquid crystal module will allow you to change any of the parameters away from the computer or make instant on field adjustments, Bluetooth module, the data transmission module, GPS module, satellite receiver, 3-axis head and other equipment connection. With the Crius MWC LCD module, on field adjustments can easily be made to the PID parameters, no longer need to carry a laptop computer with you !

PLEASE NOTE: The LCD Module above is not supplied with this Controller, but is an extra that we sell in our shop - £12.99

 Also includes - FTDI Basic Breakout Arduino USB-TTL 6 PIN 3.3 5V for MWC MultiWii SE

This is the newest revision of our FTDI BASIC. It now uses a SMD 6-pin header on the bottom, which makes it smaller and more compact. Functionality has remained the same.

This is a basic breakout board for the FTDI FT232RL USB to serial IC. The pinout of this board matches the FTDI cable to work with official Arduino and cloned 5V Arduino boards. It can also be used for general serial applications. The major difference with this board is that it brings out the DTR pin as opposed to the RTS pin of the FTDI cable. The DTR pin allows an Arduino target to auto-reset when a new Sketch is downloaded. This is a really nice feature to have and allows a sketch to be downloaded without having to hit the reset button. This board will auto reset any Arduino board that has the reset pin brought out to a 6-pin connector.

The pins labeled BLK and GRN correspond to the colored wires on the FTDI cable. The black wire on the FTDI cable is GND, green is CTS. Use these BLK and GRN pins to align the FTDI basic board with your Arduino target.

This board has TX and RX LEDs that make it a bit better to use over the FTDI cable. You can actually see serial traffic on the LEDs to verify if the board is working.

This board was designed to decrease the cost of Arduino development and increase ease of use (the auto-reset feature rocks!). Our Arduino Pro boards and LilyPads use this type of connector.

One of the nice features of this board is a jumper on the back of the board that allows the board to be configured to either 3.3V or 5V (both power output and IO level). This board ship default to 5V, but you can cut the default trace and add a solder jumper if you need to switch to 3.3V.

These Boards are only suitable for flyers with previous experience or  are technically minded . . . !  !
You will be required to do a certain amount of setting up and configuration to enable these boards to function and operate correctly, 
you may need to re-flash the board with other firmware than that supplied to allow it to work with your R/C gear or make other adjustments for this board to operate correctly.

Should you not feel confident or have no experience of these types of boards, we first suggest you ask someone who may help you locally, and do some on line research to establish if these boards are boyond your capabilites - Again these board are NOT plug and play - 
Please do not purchase if you are not happy with the above statement !

By purchasing this item, you are in aggreement that Pyramid Models or the owners, cannot give any support, will not be held 
responsible for any crash damage to this Circuit Board or other connected R/C gear, however caused or even a collision or crash by inexperience pilots, and under no circumstances will a claim for exchange or refund be accepted once used.

This board is an open circuit and should be treated with respect,  all Boards are thouroughly checked and tested before dispatch and incorrect wiring or setting up may result in your aircraft becoming unstable and a crash occurring, this may cause serious damage to the controller board, yourself, nearby objects, and any other radio gear connected to this board.
