MultiWii v2.3 for PARIS Air  - Paris v5 - see product pages themselves
 --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 

PARIS v 3.0 - Classic Nintendo Wii Motion Plus MP+ 

and Nintendo Wii Nunchuk NK combo

PARIS boards from 1.0 -> 3.0 these ran on MultiWii 1.3 - download HERE

Make sure to download the older use Arduno 023 to upload sktetches and be sure to comment/edit them for your sensors that you use such as a Nunchuck Acc (NK) - in the original software we used the Wii Gyro and this was enabled by default - only other sensors like Acc or BARO had to be enabled

For Electronic Engineers wanting to build a classic recycled Wii board using the v3.0 PARIS use these 2 diagrams below
 
NOTE: Use the 4v5 PIN12 for Vcc.   Drill a 4mm hole thru the AE of the word Aerial.  Pass the NK wires thru this.  This is for Original Brand Nintendo Motion Plus - April 2011 version.  See video page this site to harvest MP+
 
 
NOTE: This original Nintendo® NK has been harvested as per the video on the videos page this site.  The ACC is located close to the geometric centre of the board.  Stuck down with rubberised foam tape.  It must be perfectly level/flat.

PARIS v 3.0 - Adding Barometer - BMP085

Nintendo Wii Motion Plus MP+ 

with LLC and BMA180 Acc

For Electronic Engineers
 
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 

Adding BMA020 Bosch Acc to a warthox FPV 2.0

The BMA020 Acc by BOSCH can be installed on the PARIS/warthox MultiWiiCopter boards instead of a Nunchuk to provide the auto LEVEL functionality .  The BMA020 board has a built in LLC and allows it to run on the 5v SDA/SCL lines safely.  Use Foam tape to mount it as shown above.  Note that the Vcc line connect to 3 pins on the BMA020 and the GND line to two pins on the BMA020.
 
The BMA020 Acc by BOSCH can be installed on the PARIS v3 MultiWiiCopter boards instead of a Nunchuk to provide the auto LEVEL functionality .  The BMA020 board has a built in LLC and allows it to run on the 5v SDA/SCL lines safely.  Use Foam tape to mount it inverted orientation is as shown above.  Note that the Vcc line connect to 3 pins on the BMA020 and the GND line to two pins on the BMA020. Below is the reverse side of the same board with original WiiMP+ gyro - Also COMMENT in the BMA020 in the Code!

warthox FPV v 2.0 -Original Nintendo® Wii Motion Plus MP+ 

and LLC with BMA180 combo

For Electronic Engineers
Wii Original MP+ Gyro and Bosch® BMA180 Acc combo on a warthov v2 FPV - both run on 3v3 and use SMD pullups (installed for this setup with a SMD hot air reflow gun) to control the voltages in the I2C SDa /SCL lines which sit at around 2.6v   - I found I get a nice flight characteristic with this setup for both PARIS and warthox; and will be easy to add the BARO to the LLC LV side.
NOTE : 2 x 2K2 1206 hardware pull-up resistors have been added as shown in this photo!

PARIS v 3.0 - Original Nintendo Wii Motion Plus MP+ 

with LLC and BMA180 Acc

For Electronic Engineers
Wii Original MP+ Gyro and Bosch® BMA180 Acc combo on a PARIS v3 AP board - both the MP+ and the Acc run on 3v3 and use SMD pullups (activated on PARIS by closing the solder pads) to control the voltages in the I2C SDa /SCL lines which sit at around 2.6v   - I found I get a nice flight LEVEL mode characteristic with this setup for both PARIS and warthox; and will be easy to add the BARO to the LLC LV side.

TriCopter Building guide

 

This diagram (above) shows the engine ESC pins used for flying a TriCopter MultiWiiCopter using our warthox FPV v2.0 video board and the Spektrum 6 channel Rx 6110E - wiring is the same for all JR and Spektrum® Rx - Set Tx to PPM/Acro 
 
This diagram (above) shows the engine ESC pins used for flying a TriCopter MultiWiiCopter using our PARIS v3.0 Aerial Photo board and the Spektrum 6 channel Rx 6110E - wiring is the same for all JR and Spektrum® Rx - Set Tx to PPM/Acro .
The tricopter servo benefits from a Capacitor at C1 in the range 2200-3300uF. A uBEC soldered to the 5v setting can be fitted to the BEC position - and then disconnect all the ESC red wires (after calibrating them to the Rx)

Quad X copter Building guide

 
This diagram (above) shows the engine ESC pins used for flying a QUAD X MultiWiiCopter using our warthox FPV v2.0 video board and the Spektrum 6 channel Rx 6110E - wiring is the same for all JR and Spektrum® Rx - Set Tx to PPM/Acro

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
To use my Spektrum DX7 Radio with a PARIS v3 180 board and fly Y6 or HEX you need one of these small DIYDrones encoders which combine the separate Channels into a single SUM line.  (No longer required in software 1.9 or later - simply activate the A0 & A1 code lines and connect the engines 5 & 6 to the Cm1 and Cm 2 pins instead)   They come preprogrammed 100% compatible and ready to go - just solder the 5 white wires and one black/red/white plug as shown here - then the other end goes to the THRO PPM SUM spot - no other wires required ! thats all!  You don't need to run 6 sets of +ve /GND lines because you are just creating a ground loop.  GEAR=AUX1 in GUI ; AUX1 = AUX2 in GUI - for Spektrum.  I also sealed my DIYDrones board in clear heatshrink and added 90° pins so it could sit flat under my AR6100.  Dont forget to enable the Sketch Code for PPM sum JR - works well also with Quad and Tricopter because it gives you access to AUX1 switches and also AUX2 - so you can enable BARO and LEVEL mode on two different switches.

PARIS v4.0 ERRATUM
There is an error in the early PARIS v4 LED earth strip for boards shipped before 18Aug - Newer v4.0 r3 board are NOT effected.  For the older v4.0 if left as it is, it will function, but the LED strip will not Extenguish when the board is disarmed.   It takes approx 2 mins to fix this safely.
 
1. Remove all power sources from the board
2. Cut the copper trace in the area shown in red
3. Scrape away the black mask on either side of the cut
4. Solder a short wire jumper as shown by the green line
5. solder/Attach the LED earth to the new position shown in blue
6. done
 
 
 
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
The Clasps on the SPARKFUN FTDi are not consistent and not tight enough for my liking (before photo) and lead to intermittent data issues in the GUI and also software related upload issues - I fixed this by ; 1) sanding away 2mm of plastic to expose the female clasps 2) using a spike - tweezers as shown here to gently tighten the female clasps (AFTER PHOTO)
 
 
 
It now grips very positively and GUI / data uploads are trouble free.

history stuff

It's fairly well known that RTF multicopter systems filtering down from the military like DraganFlyer sell for $18,000; then more recently the MikroKopter systems selling kits for $3500 to $7000 assembled.  The first MultiWiiCopter.com adapter boards PARIS v1.0 in Nov 2010 were a result of a process involving several members of the RC Groups community; following on from the original 3 x HK401 gyro tricopters and Arduino software.  The goal was to develop a DIY in-the-air cost of $350 for an indoor tricopter  - made possible by Alex's DIY multicopter flight control system software.  This has been achieved and the Liberté multicopter now flies under the name of MultiWiiCopter.  The humble MultiWiiCopter is now an extremely strong contender in the market taking it to the Dragan and the MK.  The design became popular due to advantages it had over other multicopter control systems:

  • Based on the open-source and beginner-friendly Arduino software
  • Capable of controlling multicopters suitable for hovering stability (requires acceloromter in sirius) and/or aerobatics
  • In addition to being configurable in the field via LCD display, the system can be configured and monitored through Alexinparis' free Arduino-based GUI on a PC or Mac (Arduino to USB connectivity required).
  • More fine-grained user configuration is possible due to user-definable P, I & D parameters for Pitch (Nick), Roll and Yaw (many competing designs only offer a single user-definable parameter for each axis).

With feedback from other members in the now-epic RCgroups thread, Alexinparis extended the TriWiiCopter (later renamed to MultiWii) arduino sketch to support other multicopter configurations including Quad, QuadX, Y6 and Hex.

Design

The PARIS Aerial photography board powered by our very own Sirius® Navigator IMU produces stable and smooth video on our Carbon fibre SCARAB airframes.  In Nov 2010 RCgroups member, AlouetteIII, a long time RC pilot, Air Force jet pilot, Rescue pilot and helicopter flight instructor decided to take the lead and make the risky decision to manufacture MultiWiiCopter boards and make them available to the DIY multicopter community worldwide.  With encouragement and liaison with both Alexinparis and Markus, AlouetteIII refined and manufactured the first main boards, and is now has continued to develop and design.  We sell direct to pilots the MultiWiiCopter PARIS boards from this very site (multiwiicopter.com).  Original v1.0 was developed further and PARIS v2.0 products which were improved ; replaced by the PARIS v3.0 and our original Warthox v2.0 boards ; improved and replaced by PARIS v4.0.  The idea behind our boards and other SCARAB UAV products is this : -

  • Clean design - strong, neat - logical based on flying experience - not just CAD
  • Original Airframes and Electronics flown by our Pro Pilots /FilmMakers team worldwide
  • Aviation quality boards - stronger boards and thicker copper than any competitor's board
  • Fast low cost shipping worldwide
  • Top quality materials to CE and RoHS standards
  • Designed by Pilots for pilots - no extra pins ; no extra rubbish found on competitors boards like buzzers - we use telemetry for individual cell monitoring, we listen to feedback
  • Professional customer service - we reply to all emails promptly from our registered office - No hidden addresses and phone numbers like our competitors.
