    Tridge and I received our XRacer boards recently and got ardupilot working on it (Tridge did all the patches, I was just the test pilot).  Here's a video of the first flight using only AltHold and Stabilize.  Since then we have Loiter, Auto and the telemetry working as well.

  • Dear  Nick Arsov, Thank you for your contribution to the open source hardware and APM team.Waiting for you to publish a schematic.

  • Jackie, the XRacer is open source and we will be releasing the schematics only once the design is completely validated. Thank you for the interest.

  • Dear  Nick Arsov, I am interested in the schematic of XRacer, If the schematic will be open source, Can you send me a copy of the schematic for research? Thank you very much! My mailbox is dreamshl@qq.com

  • If "RC-IN" means that there's are PWM inputs, I would think those would be easier to serve double duty as PWM output pins for those that use single-input receivers (PPM, SBus, etc).

  • Hi Thorsten,

    Also if not using the ESP8266, you have 6 additional I/O pins. I hope there will be option in the setup to use them for something else.

  • if you're using a quad, you have 2 free pins

    Are there any auxiliary outputs available for triggering cameras, controlling gimbals etc?
