Arduimu v2 flat based quadrotor build

hello all on this forum,

i have started building my quadrotor. and i am using arduimu v2 flat as a main controller.

i am very new to all those things,uptill now i got my arduimu v2 and i just programmed it with

the latest firmware 1.7ver with the parameters said in the program for testing and

i also tested it with the happykillmore sofware and is working well.

so now my question is the values which are said to be set in the firmware should i change them

since i am using only arduimu v2 flat and no magnetometer and no gps module.

and 2nd is how to do PID tuning since i dont have any idea about this.

and how the arduimu recognizes the perticular s isnal coming from transmitter.

please anyone help me out.

thanks in advance

  • thanks mark for your reply but what values i should set in the below code since i will use arduimu as standalone 

    controller.have a look

    /*For debugging propurses*/
    #define PRINT_DEBUG 0 //Will print Debug messages

    //OUTPUTMODE=1 will print the corrected data, 0 will print uncorrected data of the gyros (with drift), 2 will print accelerometer only data
    #define OUTPUTMODE 1

    #define PRINT_DCM 0 //Will print the whole direction cosine matrix
    #define PRINT_ANALOGS 0 //Will print the analog raw data
    #define PRINT_EULER 0 //Will print the Euler angles Roll, Pitch and Yaw
    #define PRINT_GPS 1 //Will print GPS data

    // *** NOTE! To use ArduIMU with ArduPilot you must select binary output messages (change to 1 here)
    #define PRINT_BINARY 0 //Will print binary message and suppress ASCII messages (above)


    and please reply me and also soon i will post u the result i got in arduimu test u check and tell

    me if they are ok pr not.

    thanks for ur help
