The project is to develop a PID controller for a quadrotor, using the fabulous machine max32 board  the Company DIGILENT    with 32-bit resolution, to implement not only linear control strategies such as PID control strategies as well as RREE nonlinear (feedback state space ) and SMC (sliding mode control).

Using as the fabulous imu sensor 9 DF Sparkfun Razor Company.

Interesting move - - over to Arduino on a PIC.

I was a PIC programmer and hardware design engineer before I retired.

Not sure, but it may be possible you could port Arducopter on to this.

Good Luck, please keep us posted as to your progress.

would be interesting if a port Arducopter,,,, if the project is implemented ArduPilot although compatibility is like 50%, if you are interested I leave the project .... I'm in the process of implementing a pid to the platform, to see how it behaves ... but if you are interested to let you port the project..

Use another imu! The Razor 9DOF is very sensitive to vibrations. (see my blog)

It will be very hard to get a very stable quad with this imu.

could you give me the link ... the your blog .. I do not see

Thanks mate, I have a question how it could address these effects in this imu, because truth and acquired, the noises are essentially generated by the motors???? this test imu working with motors and I have not been able to do,,, if you have this problem later that council could give me friend. to solve the problem .. thanks mate

There is a group that is Working with the cortex-m3 & m4.
I think they have transferred arducopter versions to that microcontroller.

This is the web:
