I just noticed this at the Chinese on-line retailer, ThanksBuyer.com
They are pricing the bundled versions attractively. Obviously made to compete against the APM micro 3.1
If anyone makes the leap, perhaps you could keep us informed on your experiences.
Happy flying all!!
OK now, that is an exceedingly slick piece of tech and has been added to my HK wish list! Great find and thanks for sharing!
Regarding the APM Mini Pro, I suppose, for that kind of money, one could just get one and test out the known options while connected to Mission Planner and see what works. I was just hoping to benefit from someone else's courage and curiosity before ordering one.
I opened a ticket with the Help Desk at SDSHobby.com to have them ask the manufacturer about the PPM IN feature. The mfg reported that they had not tested PPM IN on the APM-Pro Mini, but SDS reports a number of their customers have used the standard APM PPM IN (PPM on ch1 with ch2+3 shorted) and it does work. Apparently.
Nice little piece of technic
Opened up it has the foam cover for the baro inside, separated from status led by some plastic protrusion from the upper cover.
I connected it to my laptop and uploaded the Arducopter Tri 3.2.1 without poblems, the FC works!
I made accel calibration and it levels correctly.
Now I must set it on my tricopter frame and then I'll post my impressions.
Thanks for the updates! Mine is in the process of clearing customs and should be here within the week. I'm looking forward to getting it into the quad and getting back in the air now that the good flying weather is here.
Thanks Pietro for the update.
So how you manage to power the board using the broken PM? or change with brand new one?
