A small update of my project (a part of it... ;))
Here we go, my A.A.P.D.B. - Alternative Arducopter Power Distribution Board
Simple double-sided board with extra kick.
It can handle 4 ESC's and a battery monitor. And the most important high current!!!
Above is the board before etching.
As you can see the board is VERY simple but there are some cool features:
1. On the top side of the board there is a mesh connected to negative pole for ground providing and it acts as shield for PWM signals and for other electronics above the board like the APM, compass, x-bee, GPS etc...
2. Small 2 pin connector for direct battery connection, good for LED strips and battery monitors like this one from HobbyKing
3. All 4 PWM signals combined in ONE socket as well positive and negative wires from ONE ESC.
4. And 4 mount holes.
