Unfortunately the systems blow up last Friday (the 20th) so we were receiving emails from customers but any of our responses made it out, they were probably sent to the limbo.net.
The system… Continue

I’m pleased to announce the new APM 2.0 revision, better known as APM2.5!
But before you start screaming that you just got an APM 2.0, let me explain that there’s NO difference in performance at all between the two, the board is still the same in terms of functionally and it runs exactly the same code… Continue

Long time since my last post!

A few batches of the GS407 (uBlox) modules came defective. This problem includes units sold by SparkFun and DIYDrones Store ... The problem seems to be around the antenna solder joins, they are weak and break easily, so any little crash may break it. You can try to solder them by removing the hard… Continue
