Fun Quadcopter flights with a Wii Motion Plus and a KKmulticontroller type board



Here a video of the maiden flight of my Quad Rotor Observer (QRO) v7 with a Wii Motion Plus and a "home made" KKmulticontroller type board.

Flight controller hardware:
- Home made KKmulticontroller board with an ATMEGA168 and based on the board of Rolf R Bakke
- Wii Motion Plus (genuine Nitendo version) with the IDG-600 and the XR3500 MEMS sensors

Flight controller firmware:
- XXcontroller_KR_v1_5b based on assembly code by Rolf R Bakke converted by Mike Barton modified by Minsoo Kim and Jean-Louis Naudin

- 4 brushless motors DualSky XM2822CA 1450KV 7A
- 4 ESC 12A XC1210-BA
- Lipo battery 3S (11.1V) Turnigy Nanotech 2200 mAh
- receiver Corona CR6D 2.4 Ghz

 

Here a video of my quadcopter at high speed forward flights and at high turns rate... The Quadcopter is now well tuned with the WMP sensors, it can be very stable during the hovering and also very agile. The flight is really fun...

hey jean-luis,

with all the different wii attachments and whatnot, i'm a little confused... what exactly has the wii m+ got?

3 axis accel. , 3 axis gyro?

Hello Hamish,

The Wii M+ sensors are composed of a MEMS IDG-600 (dual axis gyro for the Roll and Pitch axis) from Invensense and a QMEMS X3500W (one axis gyro for the Yaw axis) from Epson Toyocom.

You will find the datasheet of these components here:

Below you will find the diagram of the WMP sensors:
