Hi, i am a former aeroquad 1.7 and 2.0 user, now converted to Multiwii.

First flight:

Some acro test with multiwii 1.2:

Maybe i'll switch back to aeroquad when i improve my sensors...

Well, you are certainly a good pilot and have a nice quad, but the biggest question: why the switch?

I have tried and flew both, but from a developer perspective I like AQ very much more, still the MultiWii is more optimized towards the exact hardware which I partly use...

From a developer perspective i like AQ Much more too, but from a pilot perspective multiwii flies better with wmp.
With aeroquad the rx routines is full of jitter, with multiwii is absolutely perfect and jitter free; my wii sensors (nintendo original) and aeroquad code sometimes go crazy and the quad black out and crash, with multiwii they don't.

I'd be interested in seeing this code working with a 2.0 shield if you have one. I doubt it would be difficult to change the pin assignments.

Actually Mikro implemented the same angle estimation (Kalman type) into 2.0 so you can use that with any hardware, but it is optimized for Wii sensors.

It does not solve any receiver issues you might have but still...

Oh, and another thing. AQ offers a user set Low Pass filter for the transmitter command and also a transmitter response gain. These two should very effectively remove any unwanter "jitter" seen after raw decoding.

The new 2.0 code structure is so adaptive...

I think Im going to build a multiwii too - only reason is the dimensions - I want to build a mini-quad
