New Product
Pirates' Productions Proudly Presents: the MegaPirate UAV and more...

Hi Pirates of the Air!

I'm happy to announce the final steps taken by ArduPirates to build and offer own hardware.

We present frames, UAV accessory and electronix for decent prices.





And finally it's there: The MegaPirate based on ATMega1280/2560 like the Flyduino and FFIMU

Pirate Menno aka joebarteam offers a great tutorial on PID tuning


Step-by-step instructions with videos!
Not only applicable for MegaPirates but for every multirotor aircraft needing tuning of the PIDs.

http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1521520





My new MultiMega Copter based on a Paul's Flyduino Mega and Jussi's 9DOF IMU+ baro.
Frame: Kaotic Presence. Code: Alexinparis' MultiWii 1.6




You can build a quad like that for ~ 350$. It includes a flight controller with ATMega 1280 and a sensor board with 3axis gyros, accelerometers, magnetometer and barometer.



Add GPS (25$), Ultrasonic Rangefinder (8$), landing gears and camera mount (soon to come) and with some DIY you'll get away with around 500$.
There is still some code missing - but coders are hardworking people. So let's wrap them in soft cussions.


MultiMega FlyduinoMega Freeflight IMU - Outdoor Maiden Flight (2 min 55 sec)


MegaPirate PoC (5 min 12 sec)


MegaPirate Garden Flight #1 (3 min 16 sec)


Enjoy the show!

Cool stuff.

Really like the Flyduino. Been wanting a miniMega for a while. If it's arduino IDE compatible I'm there. Can he add a row or two of pinouts so you don't loose any? Also like how it doesn't have a usb thing on it.

A mini usb might be ok but I prefer to use my FTDI basic breakout or other off board device to keep the weight down.

You can order the basic set for 69$ plus shipping from me. I have a batch of 10 here (without arms). But I can arrange pre-drilled arms on request.
Norf will start with the production of complete frames in around 2 weeks.

Hexa frames shipping costs

I've sorted out the shipping costs for the Hexa frame parts (69$/50€), containing these items:

2 center plates:


2 landing gear parts:


Go Pro camera mount and stackable plates for the electronix:


A bag with screws, nuts, standoffs and landing gear sticks...


- standard shipping in Germany = 3$ (2,20€)
- registered mail in Germany = 5,5$ (4,00€)

- registered international airmail = 7,50$ (5,50€)
- fast international shipping = 10$ (7,50€)


PM me if you're interested.
