Tbh I've been really busy, not had much time to fly anything and with conditions being crap, hopefully in the new year I'll have some new projects on the go, mostly to do with HAM radio, will certainly fly again soon. FTR I hate FB too   :D Merry Christmas

Pre Order your Revolution

So, this is the board that will essentially destroy the market for others: The OpenPilot Revolution.

You can pre-order it in a ';kickstarter'; way, but there is one important thing to note: The software will not be a highly polished as for the CC3D - it will still need some sorting.

However, I think that most hardware is like that, including aiop, megapirates, multiwii - all still being worked on and updated.
http://www.openpilot.org/

I think there are around 80 hours left to be part of it. If you don';t it could be a very long time before you get your hands on this FC.

Another board to add to my collection of boards!

Not sure I see this board as a game changer the senors its using have been on other boards for a while,
The videos are a bit hyped up the sensor video doesnt show any sensors  :confused:
I really hope they deliver this time as last time they sat back while the rest of the world over took them, have you ordered one Ice

icedfusion

Yes - I ordered one as I expect the software to be the part that excels it. I may contribute myself to the code, but I will wait and see.

My expectation is that it will perform better than a wookong/naza when the software is sorted - especially if it is using the CC3D code as a basis. Once you have excellent attitude control, the rest can be built from that.

We shall see!

I look forward to seeing it in action when you get one Ice  ~~ also the CC3d you have  ~~
your not turning into a open pilot fan boy are you  :whistling:  ~~

icedfusion

I hope I am not a fanboi - but once I get them onto some frames to test I will let you know!
The GCS software is very nice I have to say.
However, I do have alot of FC';s so I don';t think I will become a fanboi
It is ridiculous how many flight controllers I have - some I have not even used!

I have
6 Afro32
4 FreeFlights <--these are ******, they almost become OK when flashed with Afro32 code.
1 original crius lite
2 crius 10dof
1 Black Vortex <---only powered up to check it works, never got it out of box again, probably never will.
1 APM2.0
1 drotek 10dof
4 miniwiis
1 nanowii
1 KK2.0
3 KK1.0 (v5.5)
4 CC3D (2 yet to be delivered)
1 Revolution (yet to be delivered)
2 flyduino boards
I have also a few sensor  boards in a box somewhere too!

Too many - yes, i think i have a problem - but I have loads of quads etc sitting in my garage and I like to take 4 or 5 out at a time to fly them as they all fly differently based on the frame/motor/setup combinations. Spent thousands on this hobby? Yes, but don';t tell the missus. In fact I could probably open a shop with the number of motors/frames/esc';s i have waiting to be used.

Bloomin hell Ice you got it bad  :rolleyes: no one can ever say you haven';t tried a good variety of flight controllers, It makes you very knowledgeable and able to offer other help to others when needed,
Just kidding about the fan boy thing  ~~

icedfusion

Yeah I know, don';t worry about the jokes - i can take ';em!!
As to the FC';s I honestly do prefer, at this time, for gyro/accel modes, the multiwii software based FC';s!
However, this may change as I can build better damped frames.
