I have used Eagle Tree before, and it has nice software.

But this project is designed to let people pick and choose what parts they want to use.
For example, maybe some one wants a bare bone tachometer, so they don't need to
use their old optical tach. if a user wants to do some simple dyno testing. Testing propellers
on really hot and humid days can be documented using up to date air density readings. Or perhaps
they are only interested in BLDC motors, but want exact thrust measurements. Anything is

I will make it as easy as possible to copy the project. But I will only be using Parallax
products like the Propeller and Basic Stamps. The best features of the Propeller:

1) There is no need for interrupts
2) It is like programming up to 8 Basic Stamps to work independently and parallel
at the same time.
