AUAV-X1 test results. Guys, are you ready to fly?


Hi guys,

Most of the AUAV-X1 tests passed just fine. The tests were so many, therefore I represent the most important ones.

For the moment the W25Q80 NAND Flash driver is not yet tested, that's why we use FM25V02 FRAM on board instead.


For the moment AUAV-X1 works with either ST IMU set ( L3GD20H + LSM303D ) or Invensense IMU ( MPU6000 ) + external magnetometer HMC5883L. Real flight tests ahead.

What I can say after all tests done:

1. AUAV-X1 is fully functional as expected with either ST IMU or Invensense IMU;

2. AUAV-X1 is compatible with PIXHAWK firmware and works just fine with QGC;

3. The microIMU board must be redesigned to have ST + Invensense combo onboard. Stacking ST IMU and MPU6000 IMU impossible;

4. A case has been designed and some vibration tests have to be performed;

5. Real flight tests ahead when the rain stops. The Balkans are floaded;

6. W25Q80 NAND Flash driver has to be tested.

We started fulfilling the preorders with ST IMU.

Many thanks to Lorenz for his support during all the tests.

Thank you Lorenz!

Best regards

    Guys.. really struggling to understand how to make a pre-order :(

    P.S. Will the CAD files be available? I really like to incorporate the board into a design and some solidwors or othe CAD model would be really nice...

    Glad to see it coming to market, keep up the good work!

  • Great news, because i'm done fighting DF13 connectors.

  • it works fine for me too..

    Aytek,   That site does not alert on my Defender, nor on a PC with Trend A/V, nor my laptop with Norton InternetSecurity2014.

    You might need to check your PC.
