Sigh. Time for me to file another takedown request. The design is open source, but the name is trademarked and should not be used by cloners.
@Stephan...are you serious?
If this was meant as a joke, I don't think it's funny at all.
If you meant to point out another illegal infraction by goodluckbuy.com, you could have just said so.
Not trying to be funny - but what can they call it? 'APM compatible?'
Andrew: Yes, exactly. Same rules as for Arduino (clones/derivatives can't use the Arduino name, but can say they are "Arduino-compatible")
If you want it to work , dont buy from "Good Luck And Bye Bye"
Given the price difference (or lack thereof), complete lack of product support you'll get from GLB (don't try and call 3DR for help) and frankly the simple fact that they are breaking the idea of open source hardware... I'd be pretty sad if anybody bought this.
I mean really. You're going to save $30? Maybe it will work when it arrives, maybe not. They haven't done anything to improve the hardware design, it's just a simple knock-off. Meh.
The colors dont match! I dont like it :P
Why so much hate to GLB - aside from the trademark infraction (which is not cool but easily fixable by the look of it - it's not on the board itself) what have they done apart from building an open source thing?
I'm assuming the thing works of course...
@Jason: Finally a comment that makes sense! :o)
