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.)

Any estimates as to when the boards will be shipped?

I'm sorry to say that i'm dissapointed in the price too... Was really looking forward to try and get the old legacy pilots to do something useful.

 

Problem is that The Imu v3 costs $78 but your UPS economy costs $57 DOLLARS... THAT IS SCREAMING MAD!

It Translated to South African Rand I can buy the whole APM+Oilpan for dubble the price in Rands from the SA distributer. That seems to once again keep the Legacies on my shelf catching dust.. 2 AP with no use... {Sigh}

Cronselaar: I'm sure it will be available from the South African distributor soon.

Yusuf: As others have answered a number of times in this thread, no. This is a stand-alone IMU and is not intended to work with ArduPilot Mega.

I hope so... Never mind the APM that i'm using on the copter, it just seems that those two AP boards really bug me... Would be nice to put them in a night flight plane or on the FPV plane for peace of mind.

Wait, is this going to to replace the current ArduPilot or is this something totally different?

Chris:  Do you know if this is a direct replacement for the ArduIMUv2 when used with the Original ArduPilot?  Or will modification/code changes be required on the older AP(l)?  Thanks
