    What happened to the product page? I see it has disappeared. I was really looking forward to it. Hopefully it's not going to be a no show.

    Did the price change from $49.95 to $54.95?

    Thanks Jani for the reply :)  In any-case is this board open source and will you be publishing the schematic and board files if they have not been done so already?

    Alex, you cannot upgrade old board as this board have fully re-designed power supply system. So you need to change PCB designs and everything to make it work.

    Looks cool, but where are the schematics and board diagrams for the new version?  Since I already have a minimOSD I would like to see if I could "upgrade it" to hook up higher voltage lipos..

  • Congratulations on the new board, it looks promising, please let me know once the board is in stock and fully test so I will buy one, thanks for all the support.
