I saw this Raspberry Pi clone today the first time and will definitely try it in september. A lighter, smaller alternative to the rpi.

From the description:

ODROID-W is a miniature computing module which is fully compatible with all software available for the Raspberry-Pi.

The W stands for: - Wearable device development
- Widely applicable Internet of Things (IoT) development
- Workable DIY electronics prototyping

This is awesome, if OpenFPV is going to use it, it will be great, save so much space.

If the results with it are good, we will definitely use it. The biggest problem with the Raspberry is the space and weight.

looks like there isn't an ethernet interface on that little odroid-w board :(

A breakout board exists which adds an ethernet controller, but it's big and comes with 4 USB ports and an RJ45.. bummer..

It would be interesting to see how well the single USB port on the little board can handle a wireless adapter when powered from a teeny LIPO..

Thats a tiny fabulous piece of technology.
Already ordered one!

Shame it doesnt come with everything (sensors, pwm 16 channel output, pwm input) on board. The navio ( i think that was the name) will be shipping soon, but its fairly large as well.

This seems like a seriously cool innovation. Interesting to see some of the "anger" on the RPi forums accusing them of copying/cloning whatever. In this instance Hardkernal has actually brought some serious innovation to the table. Will be checking it out for sure.

Broadcom has stop shipping/selling the BCM2835 SoC to hardkernel.

Odroiw W is now sadly discontinued...

What a shame, i didnt realise it mattered where people got their pi from as long as they got into hacking them to do stuff.

Comment by Ben Dellar on September 1, 2014 at 12:31am

That is a pity - this actually seemed like a really innovative move by hardkernal. I love the raspberry pi and pi camera but hate how big it is (not really suitable for most peoples early aircraft like 450 quads and bixler size planes)

I hope either they get their supply restored or someone else manages to get something similar to market.

It does not stop from getting it and building a quadcopter :)

This is Odroid-W based:
