"@hiroshi, Best of luck with URUS for the future. It is great that someone is keeping the classic APM ArduPilot code and boards alive. I used to have great fun with Ardupilot both flying and hacking on my APM2. regards Andy"

"Lovely looking plane. The issue on takeoff on the maiden flight looks like a classic tip-stall, where the air stalls on one wing only with the result as here. It is usually unrecoverable unless you have a lot of height.  Tip stall is a problem…"

Generic Flight controller mixing

Once upon a time RC control of an aircraft consisted of a Transmitter with a single button. Your aircraft had a rudder only. Hit the button once to go left, twice to go right.Increasingly RC transmitters offered more functionality with different mixing facilities and modern transmitter software such as open TX offer very flexible facilities.But, if your aircraft is being controlled by a flight controller, have mixing on the RC Transmitter is no good, you need the mixing to be on the flight…See More

STM32H7 previews

Next generation STM32. 400 MHz clock. Up to 1Mb RAM. Double precision hardware floating point. There is enough RAM there to start using dynamic loading of code. You can also increase the FLASH using memory mapped QUADSPI

And all at low power consumption they say! Nice!
