Brain FPV Flight Controller - Full Graphic OSD - Open Source - Made in USA - 36x36mm
The Brain is a next-generation flight controller that is specifically designed for first person view (FPV) flying and includes a full-graphic on-screen display (OSD). The Brain is small and light (36mm x 36mm, 8 grams), so it is ideally suited for FPV mini quads but it can fly anything, from mini quads to large octo-copters and fixed-wing planes.
The firmware running on the Brain is open source (GPL V3) and based on Tau Labs, which gives you many exciting features and also a great cross-platform (Linux, Windows, OS-X) ground control software to configure your flight controller using USB.
Importantly, open source firmware gives you complete freedom to do whatever you want with your flight controller; don't like the way the home direction is displayed in the OSD? Improve the code and contribute it back for everyone to benefit. Naturally, this does not mean you have to be a programmer or know programming to use the Brain, but you are free to modify the code if you want. It can be found on GitHub.
The Brain is made in the United States according to the highest industry quality standards.
FPV Specific Features:
The Brain will be available soon! You can sign-up here to get notified or watch this thread for updates! Below is a video of a test flight on a tricopter.

I'm really looking forward to seeing some reports from people about this FC. I hope it's a solid open-source competitor to the Vector.

BTW, that hardware setup drawing is one of the best I've seen. Most products in this arena seem to come without directions or are written assuming the user has a phd in physics! Nice job.
