Quadrocopter MultiWii Configuration Program
The MultiWii Configuration Program is a very helpful program to change control (PID) parameters and adjust sensors.
You have to take care to always match the version number of the MultiWii control program and configuration program, otherwise it may not work.
In order to make changes to this program, you have to setup your own development environment.
Setup Development Environment for MultiWiiConf
Because I have not found any good description how to compile the MultiWiiConf program under MAC OS X, I like to describe that for reference.
Although the MultiWiiConf program opens in Arduino you need Processing to compile it, see link. It has a similar GUI than the Arduino GUI.
- Processing is an open source programming language and environment for people who want to create images, animations, and interactions. Initially developed to serve as a software sketchbook and to teach fundamentals of computer programming within a visual context, Processing also has evolved into a tool for generating finished professional work.
You download the file processing-1.5.1-macosx.zip and double click on it. This will give the folder Processing.app.
- Download the controlP5 library (controlP5.zip), see link, and expand it via double click.
Right click on Processing.app and select show package content, it will be shown in a new Finder window.
Find the folder /Contents/Resources/java/modes/java/libraries
Copy the unzipped folder controlP5 to the folder libraries, mentioned in the previous line.
Start Processing.app via double click and see in the menu under /Sketch/Import Library... if it shows controlP5.
Create a new folder with name Sketchbook and copy the MultiWiiConf source to this folder.
In menu /Processing/Parameters/Sketchbook location locate your Sketchbook folder.
Now you can open via menu /File/Sketchbook/... your application program MultiWiiConf....
To test/compile click on the button Run.
- To export the compiled program for Linux/MAC OS X/Win32 click on menu /File/Export Application.
Temporary files go to /var/folders/S0/S0aRqmw0F44AMaD81SIw2k+++TQ/-Tmp-/MultiWiiConf_dev_201110062865880771076354225temp
The folder /var can be reached via Finder menu /Go to/Go to folder.
