Anybody tried one of these?
Didn';t see it when it came out, it predates the naze mini.  Don';t like the price, must be some clones, yes send in the clones!

Just noticed it came out last month i think.  I want one.  Come on China, fire up your best cloning tools

ouch its cheaper at RMRC, they posted it in their news feed on FB the other day.
Point and click.

Guys sweat blood and tears at OP to bring one of the best FC';s around, and you want friggen Chinese clones.

This is the sort of thing I would buy a genuine version of, smaller companies will stop making new stuff if all that happens is the chinese make a copy of it and sell it for a 3rd of the price. 

I fly stuff

Ah but isn';t this also Open Source, as is their CC3D and Revo hardware (and of course software)?  In which case Open Pilot have intentionally given it up exactly to be copied and sold by others. They will not be feeling in any way aggrieved that the Chinese are making cheaper versions of their hardware.

You can';t have it both ways i';m afraid, if you castigate trappy for his expensive products, why carp on about chinese imports this time?

I';ve never been terribly impressed with open pilots attitude towards open source. For a long time it was hard to get hold of their boards, their software appeared to be almost stationary in terms of development, and all their developers where having some massive falling out with forks being created left right and centre just to keep things moving.

TBS';s new gemini uses a version of the Taulabs flight controller which is an open pilot fork;

http://taulabs.org/

Until the revo appeared Open Pilots GPS support was even less good than timecops.

I agree with handson - if it';s open source hardware and software then there is nothing wrong with buying a cheaper clone. If their business model is ruined by people buying open source hardware then they are doing it wrong. They need to offer something others don';t like better quality control if they want to justify selling hardware at 2 or 3 times the price.

Some people will buy the original stuff and others (probably more) will buy the cheapest available clones. That';s what open source hardware means.

Look at arduino a company that has embraced the idea of cheaper clones and open source hardware. They don';t seem to be doing badly.
