Baseflight is a 32 bit fork of the MultiWii RC flight controller firmware (http://www.multiwii.com).
Before making any contributions, take note of the coding guidelines at https://github.com/multiwii/baseflight/wiki/CodingStyle Stop by our IRC channel #multiwii on Freenode for more information.
The latest builds can be obtained here: http://firmware.baseflight.net
Information about the builds is provided at http://dev.baseflight.net:8080/job/baseflight
Note that these images aren't necessarily flight-tested so use them at your own risk. Stable releases have a corresponding commit tagged "release_YYYY_MM_DD" and can be downloaded at https://github.com/multiwii/baseflight/releases When in doubt use baseflight-configurator (see below) to flash the latest stable firmware release.
Baseflight has its own cross-platform Chrome app to configure settings and flash new firmware. It can be downloaded from the Chrome Web Store: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/baseflight-configurator/mppkgnedeapfejgfimkdoninnofofigk?hl=en
