ArduIMU V3 ready for pre-order and check our new color!

Hi there! Finally you can pre-order the ArduIMU V3 here.. You can find more info abut it in my last post here

The final version of the board for full production is here, I'm expecting to start shipping them this Friday or Monday. 

We are still working on documentation and giving the final cosmetic touches to the example code to have it ready before you have one in your hands and at the same time we are shipping samples to developers to do a full DCM integration.


From now on our new color will purple! All our new products will feature a Lilypad style look! 


(Note: this is a stand-alone IMU, and is not designed to be a replacement for the "Oilpan" IMU shield of ArduPilot Mega.)

Ignore my last comment.... I did some reading.... if you don't know what you need the IMU for than you do not need it at all.... but I still cant wait to play with it.

do you know when the ArduIMU v3 will be avaliable in the stock?

I'd like to use this to stabilize an aerial photography mount. Are there enough pins left to control 2 or 3 servos and enough code space for some simple algorithms? Or would I need a separate processor (maybe a Teensy) for servo control?

Harry: what board are you selecting in Arduino? (I think you need to select Uno)

Harry: What code are you loading? Not the old ArduIMU code I hope (that won't work). The only code currently supported is the test code on the product listing.

Hmm. I can't load it either. I'll ping the 3DR team and find out what the deal is.

when do you think the ArduIMU V3 will be back in stock?

Possible fix for upload:

I had a similar problem uploading code. I found that it was a corrupt boot loader. Once I re-flashed it everything worked fine.

Hi guys, there is a mistake with the initial batch of boards  shipped out, please send us an email to to get you set up with a fix!  I apologize fort the mix up, we dropped the ball on this one.  Hopefully it didn't cause many problems out there!

@Archangel06, we'll have a few available today, fixed and all!

Hello Guys, 


Yes the first batch that when out had the bootloader corrupted. Sorry! You can upload the correct bootloader if you haven an ISP programmer or just send us an email to to arrange a solution as Lorenzo suggested.
