Different use of watchX in UAV Systems


Hello Dear DIY DRONES Community. 

I am a long term fan of DIY DRONES and wanted pass on something new that could be a nice fit as a blog post. Me and my friend Enes(You can remember him from an excellent drawing of APM at GRABCAD)  working on UAVs for a long time now. Recently we come up with an idea of Arduino compatible wrist watch called watchX. it's an easy hackable development board that you can use in everyday life.


There are many usages of watchX besides being a daily watch. Initially, we wanted to have flight critic information on our wrist. Then, we removed the strap of watchX and designed a case to mount the PCB of the watch to Turnigy 9x. It was easy to draw a case since we are providing the 3D step model of watchX.  We needed a second board that communicates with the FPV Raptor via Mavlink and provide us the information like battery voltage, altitude, speed, current mode and artificial horizon. It still needs a lot of tuning and debugging. Please let us know what you think about it? 

Also currently we are running a crowdfunding Campaign on Indiegogo.
