@Chris,

After visiting the Sparkfun manufacturing area, you obviously did not take any hints from their operation. It looks like you could possibly get through an ISO 9000/9001 audit!

Regards,

Looks Great guys, serious endeavor.

The power modules are the ideal thing to get started on.

Gary, 

Actually the TJ facility has been making almost all of the 3DR electronics (not just the power modules) for nearly a year. They've just moved to a bigger facility. Here are some bare APM PCBs going into the Manncorp:

CNC clean room!? What's that? Do you make your own boards?

Comment by Matt on July 3, 2013 at 7:29pm

Looking Good!

Greg: the CNC room is where the ArduCopter structural parts are made. It's not like a semiconductor clean room, but it has its own air ventilation and HVAC sysem to keep dust away from the electronics area outside.

Santas workshop :) Is there an outlet store next door?
