Controlling a model from the EZ-GUI
- keep in mind that Bluetooth (or other connection methods) has limited range and you may lose control very easly. Re-connection may not be possible
- make sure that you have failsafe set properly
- call, sms or other interruption may push EZ-GUI to background and control may be lost
- Use it on own risk
- author is not responsible for any injuries and damages
Controlling your craft from EZ-GUI is possible and it doesn’t require any particular settings. If the craft has RC receiver it can be still controlled from EZ-GUI. Commands from EZ-GUI overrides signal from RC receiver. If there is no command from EZ-GUI for more than one second flight controller will switch back to RC receiver or it will enable failsafe (or if failsafe is not set it will keep the last values)
From MultiWii 2.3 there is no need to configure anything on the flight controller side.
You will find Model Control in Advanced section of EZ-GUI.
Available in version 3.128.189 and later
You can use gamepad or joystick to control the model. Every gamepad is different so the axis mapping are also different and have to be set manually. To do this go to Model control settings. If gamepad is detected you will see “GamePad mapping options”.
GamePad mapping example:
By moving each stick on your game pad in one axis, the axis number can be established and then can be used to assign it to any slider available in mode control section.
In example I want to assign up-down motion of the right stick to the vertical slider in EZ-GUI. So I start by moving up or down the right stick. “Axis number” shows number of moved axis for the current gamepad as well as axis value (from -1 to 1).
Knowing the axis number I put it on the third position in configuration text (third position is reserved for Vertical Slider): 0;1;14;11
After axis are configured but some Sliders are working in revers you can correct it setting the “Axis revers”.
0 – means that axis will be not reversed
1 – it will be reversed
In my situation it is 0;1;1;0 –
left-right – not reversed
up-down – reversed
vertical slider – reversed
horizontal slider – not reversed
