The original NanoWii is a complete multirotor flightcontroller. It is based on the ATmega32u4, which is the processor of the Arduino Leonardo and incorporates a MPU-6050 chip, which is a combined gyro and ACC.
You just need to solder the pin headers and upload the MultiWii software and even this isnt really needed if you use our easy chrome gui app.
NanoWii advantages compared to a promini (ATmega328p):
- USB on chip (no FTDI or UART needed)
- a free serial port (its possible to use a Spektrum Satellite together with the GUI)
- 6 high resolution (11-bit) PWM outputs
- 2.5kB RAM
- higher P values now easily achievable with HPWM form 32U4, especially with SimonK rapid ESC and especially the even faster KISS and Ultra ESC
It comes with the latest Arduino Leonardo bootloader, which is released with Arduino 1.0.1 so you just need to select the Leonardo (under Tools / Board) to use it (for this you dont need to care if using our easy way with the chrome app).
It is fully supported by the MultiWii software since the 2.1 (or later).
- CPU speed 16 MHz
- Flash size 32kB (3.3kB are taken by the Bootloader)
- 6x high-res RX inputs (2 AUX channels)
- PPM RX support
- Spektrum Satellite support
- 6-8 motor outputs (motor 1-6 are 11-bit PWM)
- 4.0 grams of weight (0.14 oz) (without pins)
- size 3.7 x 3.7 cm (1.46in x 1.46in)
Since 5/2014 we deliver the Nanowii with a special version of the MWC code (tested and done by Warthox and Felix Niessen), this offer in first a easy to use GUI over a Chrome App.
This MWC version is also well suited for the 3D flight , especially in combination with UltraESC, a 3D setup (UltraESC) and the usage of the oneshot pwm mode (KISS ESC/Ultra ESC) is easy and cofortable by this way, all is seted by a Chrome GUI pls see pic above.
In this case, no Arduino is needed.
