    Hi Fabio, 

    so about the firmware we are doing a big job on repo ... now we transfer all the code on github here :

    now there are  code for :

    nuttx , APM Copter , Plane and Rover aligned with the master .

    Then there are : VR Pad Station source code our revision of mission planner that we use for doing pull request to official repo.

    Actually there are 6 eng that full time work on VR Brain core os , firmware and software development. 

    We are implement a server for automatic compilation of code and testing like is doing for apm / px4 platform. So basically our Server produce bin for mission planner more fast and safe respect of last manual approach . About the news in the code you can control the log on repository so you can doing in depth with last improvment to the code.

    Hi Danny , 

    you can order directly to the store here  :

    no limit to sell in UK i think in 3-4 days you can have your board :)

    Yes i like the APM until begin of the project i'm in the dev team . So now the code is very well and drone based on APM firmware fly very well. Our team start to work on 32 bit technology 3 years ago and now we have a very good experience on this kind of platform. So now with nuttx and ekf i think that our project using real power of this kind of technology. We prefer to mantain our original architecture instead to clone the PX4 hardware . Now our revision of OS and AP_HAL developed by our Team is official supported in the main repo and our bin code is available in mission planner . So thanks to Tridge and all other guys of the team for the work that continue to do to the project and sure to Chris and 3DR for big investment in development of this fantastic opensource code :)

  • Yes. The major concern to this tiny flight controller is compatibility and performance.

    But the shipping cost is also big part of VR-brain micro that the DHL takes 50% cost of tiny flight controller to Japan.


    Good thing is that there is no damage and problem at this moment;-)

  • Let us know how it performs and if you have a Pixhawk, how it compares. The price and shipping are really putting me off at the moment.
