I made this simple script to control a MultiWii copter with a joystick and a PC over XBee (or some other serial transceiver pair). Please try it out and let me know of any issues.

I moved this project to a separate arduino which takes in serial (via radio) and outputs sum ppm: https://github.com/mattwilliamson/Arduino-RC-Receiver

Matt, can you tell us how your MultiWii Copter is actually set up?

The one in the video is my old one. It's just some aluminum bar in an x configuration with an arduino mega and a 10DOF off eBay. 4 motors 1050kv turnigy 2217's. The ESCs are 30amp cheapos from hobby king.

The 10DOF was an ITG3200 based board and I highly recommend going with an MPU6050 based one.

The lipo was a 3s 4.4AH 20C, also from hobby king.
