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!!
I like this board connectors, easy to find and looks more safe than the Pixhawk ones but this one is 8 bits.
loss of control, (1:10)
"On last post you said i just need to use either power moudule or esc with bec does it mean that i dont need to use power module and can power up my apm only using esc"
This is correct, if you are going to be using on screen display then use the power module as that has voltage reporting. If not, skip the extra wiring and go the BEC route.
Check with the motor manufacture before you settle on using 5v for control... i've had terrible results doing it that way. Bumped the gimbal power up to 12v and worked perfectly.
Hello all, I just wanted to add some more info on the subject.
Trying to set up the board yesterday for an airplane (w/ arduplane) I realized that the board, when powered by the PM is NOT powering the outputs servos. I had to add power to the output side as-well via an ubec. After that the servos where working well.
In summary, the PM module is powering the board, the inputs (receiver too) and the OSD & GPS.
For the Outputs, if you are using servos not motors, you need a different power source.
I'm using the PM module to power the board and another single ubec (5A) to power the outputs, servos in my case as I'm using the board in an airplane (Bix3)
