Lot of work done in terms of fine tuning.... and also reducing the vibrations.
Some LED decoration too....
flying in a small place.
Thanks for watching.

thanks Anwar.

Fine tuning:

I will give a screen shot to give all 'pid' values. But this is important but the main thing is vibration.

Motor mount: mount it on a lyer of foam.
Balance the bell of the motor.
Balance the props. Take time and do this as perfect as possible.
Board: mount it on foam again, use nylon screws.
MP: use foam tape. Keep away from radio maganetic interference.



LEDs are powered on thru a TIP122 transistor additionaly provided on the board.

Here is the screen shot giving the latest fine tuned values of P,I,D; RC Rate, RC expo and other values.
Mind you this will highly depend on the Quad to Quad and the MP, NK you are using.

Also here is a picture of my TRI (Sign guy type) and lastest Quad for comparison.

Hi Ashta,
This is my first post here and let me introduce myself to you and to all others on this tread.
I am Srikar and by my profession I am a Software Architect/PM . 
My experience in RC was, I used to fly Pattern Planes like "Black Magic" and "Focus II" with "YS160" motor and Futaba 12Z etc while I was three in USA. But I quit the hobby 3 years back when I returned to India and trying to get back to hobby again now.

I got interested in Quads and was watching this thread and related info from last few days.
Question is,
From the link that you provided on first post of this thread,  (http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1261382), It says,

•  Gyro:
•   some versions of Wii Motion Plus: 3 MEMS Gyro: 2x IDG-650, 1x ISZ-650
•   or 3 axis gyro ITG3200
•  Acc:
•   some versions of Nunchuk:3 MEMS Acc: LIS3L02AL

So  how to get exactly those   “Some Version of Wii”??
I  thought of buying the following items after taking advice from you.
http://cgi.ebay.in/NINTENDO-WII-NUNCHUK-REMOTE-CONTROLLER-WARRANTY-NEW-/180656471272?pt=IN_Video_Game_Systems&hash=item2a0ff6fce8
http://cgi.ebay.in/NINTENDO-WII-MOTION-PLUS-NINTENDO-WII-BRAND-NEW-/170630823542?pt=IN_Video_Game_Systems&hash=item27ba63be76

Is it OK to proceed with the above items?
I am planning to use the above hardware on top of  Arduino Uno or (Mega 2560). Advice Me.
Are there any better cost effective IMU’s available in India other than Wiii Stuff??
I am planing to get all electronics from Hobby King unless there are chap here in India.
Please advice me towards any other info that I should know before I start acquiring hardware.

Thanks for help!
Srikar.

welcome srikar.
Wii MPs availble are not guaranteed to be original. Orig/ Clone makes lot of difference.
To start with you do not need the accelerometer. I still have not tried it though i have bought.
Hobbyking is still the cheapest source that i know off.
This uses Mega 328. pl check compatability.
if u want to be sure of genuine gyro, this may be better

The very first post has the link with all the information you need.  After all, Ashta bhai built this quad using the information available in that link  as a starting point Smiley

Secondly, you have to do the reading and research.  Sorry to say this, but no one will give you things in a platter, all packaged up and put in a PDF document.  The information (including source code, list of parts, connection/circuit diagrams etc) is spread out in this forum and on rcgroups.com (the link on the first page), and you will have to seek it out.

I don't meant to discourage you at all, but YOU have to read a what has been made available first, then ask specific questions if you are stuck on something.
