I'm doing the same thing. I'm assuming it's the same as ardupirates with motor 6-7 in front.
See this link> http://code.google.com/p/ardupirates/wiki/RC
Right now It's not working correctly for me. I setup the frame as HEXA+ but when I arm the motors only 4 motors work like a quad in an x configuration. Very confusing.
Thanks Matthew, hopefully it is all sorted by the time I finish construction.
I know the team will get it fixed, but they must be swamped right now
Yes I did the same thing. hexa+ and it seemed to work. I changed to hexa in x mode and the motors are working now. The PID's are out of wack though. On stock PID's I almost crashed because of so much oscillation.
It work for me all 6 motor spins. download latest trunk and add this (g.frame_type == HEXAP_FRAME) to line 223, 320, 336 and 365.
((g.frame_type == HEXAX_FRAME) || (g.frame_type == Y6_FRAME))
((g.frame_type == HEXAX_FRAME) || (g.frame_type == HEXAP_FRAME) || (g.frame_type == Y6_FRAME))
hope this help.
