IMU production back up to full speed

The new pick-and-place machine at the DIY Drones factory is now in full production, and we're filling boxes like this with the IMU shields in preparation for the ArduCopter commercial launch and APM public beta code (the code will probably go live tonight). Right now we can make about 120 boards a day, and can ramp up to 150/day if needed. Right now we're filling back orders, but it should be back in stock next week.

Look for pricing and pre-order plans for ArduCopter over the next week. This is going to be big!

  • Thanks Chris, they are very popular it seems

    Chris: We're making dozens each day--they just sell fast. They were available over the weekend, but sold out by Sun. Check in tomorrow and there should be more available.
  • Are you guys still pumping these out? Currently out of stock and I seem to keep missing it when it's available :(


    i want my adrucopter to fly soon :P any idea on when they will be back in stock?

  • Hey in the diydrones store it says to preorder the imu to get in line but won't let me add it to cart :(

    Andre: they're typically back in stock within a few days. We're making them as fast as we can (more than 100 per day), so it's typically a matter of checking back in a day or two.
  • ok thanks, when do you exepct to have IMU in stock ?

    Eagle is free, and is a quick download. It's much better than a pdf, because you can trace connections.
  • hi, is there somewhere where we can find ArduPilot Mega IMU Shield/OilPan Rev-H V1.0 shematics in .PDF, because i don't have a eagleCAD reader.
  • i hope for HMC5843 - Triple Axis Magnetometer to be in production soon...

    If the store is selling them, they've been tested and cleared.
