Now you can get all design files here:

There's now License claims in these files so do whatever you can with it.

The V1.0 hardware has successfully proved its design, now we are building it even better.

New JST GH IO board is under testing.

We even have customer who's building their own fully functional flight controllers by integrating the mainboard inside.

V1.1 hardware will be available in June 2016, with new features:

  • PX4 firmware compatible
  • optional JST GH IO board
  • optional CNC shell
  • New IMU configurations
  • bi-directional AUX port (support Lidar lite better)
  • anything you are not too late to ask

Thanks for reading this. hope people think they are offended in this thread have a better mood tomorrow, no offence.

Interesting.  What are the connector types shown in the second image?

Comment by Marc Dornan on May 9, 2016 at 1:53pm

Where can we find this? Where will it be sold? I liked the first iteration you posted. Glad to see refinements being added.

@Justin sorry i will have to solder wire to fan CAN out in v1.1

Comment by Andrew Tridgell on May 9, 2016 at 8:08pm

@Jerry, thanks for releasing that!

Does the 'RSSI' port also support being used as SBUS-output like a Pixhawk1 ? That is something I use a lot. Sorry for being lazy and not just reading the schematic.

CAN is also something that I use a lot. I'm hoping it will become more popular in the community in future.

Comment by Jerry Giant on May 9, 2016 at 8:22pm

@Tridgell Thanks for you comment
RSSI as SBUS is supported in both V1.0 and V1.1. Unfortunately I don't have a uavcan ESC on hand. will px4 esc firmware run on it so i can have a test. maybe V1.2 will have optional dedicated IO board for can.
