Edited, for adding better resolution video (up to 720p).

Is the first 3D animation test, for instructional files, from Arducopter Team. Stay tuned! :)

Here goes an hi-res image, showing our 3D ArduPilot Mega, maded for mockup and illustrations.

Cool Animation, you are really good at this :) . If you could continue the animation to include the connections to other devices and integration etc, it will be highly appreciated by many. Thanks for making this and sharing with. us.

Nice work! I just finished attaching the male headers to my ArduPilot Mega and the female headers to my IMU Mega based on the pictures on the ArduPilot Mega Home Page. I am an experienced electrical engineer with a lot of soldering experience under my belt and I am sure that your assembly animation will definitely help the beginner members get their boards assembled with a minimum of errors.

Nice video... I just got the MegaShield(oilpan) delivered today, and just got it all soldered up to my APmega (beta) board. now just need some software... waiting patiently ;)

Wow, even the solder fillets filled up on the bottom side, too cool!

Hello, dear! Thanks for the comments! I'm glad to know that this job will help beginners to assemble their boards, like Thomas said.

@Jani: Do you noticed my proud on adding it on signature? :) It's cool, man...
@Morli: It was the first jump of my wife. (with that helmet she looks like "Atom Ant" from Hanna Barbera's cartoon... hehe).

@Morli, @Earl: Yes, it will be nice to add the Sensor Shield and other peripherals around it. I'm just starting with it. There are a lot of things to consider, like reduce render time and increase resolution, but I think it would be a nice resource that justifies the work. The idea is: helping people to understand the things quickly.

@Ron: I'm doing other one, at 720p. I'm testing other setups, with less effects, for rendering more quickly, and it will be running in the next hours. All that effects are nice for still frame, but for doing more animations, we need to do it in less time.

Best regards!
