(or for those of us who don't speak Portuguese)

Looks like this board will soon be released, which could be very nice for anyone that isn't planning on using the ArduPilot boards, and it might even be compatible with the… Continue

New (Possibly useful) PIC

SparkFun has a new PIC that seems to have some very nice stats.

It's not quite as useful now that the ArduPilotPro is almost ready, but it does look to have much better performance.

The datasheet shows the most power hungry mode at 75mA max, and 80MHz, which might make processing GPS data in a UAV a whole lot easier, and a 32 bit processor and a ton of IOs are always nice to have.

Another possible project

To start, I want to thank you all for such a great site! I came here about a year ago and never quite got over how fun it would be to build my own UAV, so I'm finally going to try it.
