new APM flavor released: APM Mini Pro

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

Flight controller

FC bundled with power supply

FC, power supply, GPS unit

If anyone makes the leap, perhaps you could keep us informed on your experiences.

Happy flying all!!

  • I got my APM Pro yesterday

    I had the APM Mini and it was junk, so I decided to order the APM Pro mini and it looks fantastic.

    It has quality easy to read labels, I opened it up and all solders joints look great, 2 lights on the Pro and 1 on the GPS itself.

    Its a bit bigger than the NAZA-Lite but not much.

    I paid a low 58.99 for APM/NEO-6/PowerModile

    I have also seen it offered with the NEO-7

    Here are some pics

    Shows the lights, they work Fantastic

    NAZA is directly under this APM Pro without cover

    Here is the link where I ordered, came from China but worth the wait.

  • So, it seems as thought this board has some power issues. Mine won't power anything but gps & compass. Pawel, try moving accessories to a separate power source and let the board have its own power, as it may not want to share.

    On another note, I'm waiting for that same frame to come in the mail. How do you like it?
  • hello.

    I have a problem. I have connected at 5V power in/out (GND, 5V)

    Show how you have connected power.

    See how it works for me:

  • I am new with the apm. A Mountainings to discover and to adjust. My goal is flying missions, I have experience with the NAZA but do miss flying missions with this controller.

    My experience till now.

    The FC, telemetrie, cables, all has good solid quality. Only do miss good instructions about wiring for this new FC.

    There is no jumper 1, also use the power module, or use the bec from the ESC. I do use the 4 in 1 ESC without problems.

    Connecting the telemetrie went without any problems. Connecting the mobile without any problems.

    Adjustings several settings is harder. A lot to discover. Flew in stabilize mode, alt hold mode very well.

    Flying in loiter is not as smooth as my NAZA, what should I change? Maybe someone can give me advise?

    I am living in the Dutch Mountains. Anybody near to share experience?

    Everybody, keep writing to share experience.

    kindly regards

    • Just flew my first mission whitout any problem. Started in alt-hold, switched to loiter and than auto.

      I am not happy with the behavior in loiter. During flight the quad goes up and down, shakes and does not react solid on wind and stick.

      can someone give me advise.

      kindly regards
