Thanks, philthyy!

slappomat, the μV has essentially everything but audio/voice and RPM/temperature sensor support. Yes, it will support non-ET analog current sensors.

wow... it is absolutely a thing of beauty but I have a quick question?

How well it handles under a 250 quadcopter? As there will be a lot of magnetic interference to the compass and if you stick the GPS + Compass too high, it will be very easy to get damage during the race. But I have to say, it is pretty damn impressive.

phoanglong, yes, for GPS flight modes/SkyGates, the GPS does need to be mounted away from magnetic interference. Whether this requires stalk mounting will vary with airframe. Perhaps it could be set up to be removable, so that when actual gates are being used, it's taken off.

As a customer, may I recommend you kindly include (or sell separately) more of the micro connectors. I used the CC3D on my miniquad and absolutely HATED the micro connectors because they were weak and the wires quickly snapped on a little bit of force.
A few extra $$$ for a few extra wires won't hurt

Just got my Eagle tree Vector. I was wondering why they have not micro'ed their product yet. The vector is kinda heavy for some applications. NOW with this and a Micro Tx your quad will be super light.. Micro crossfire is like almost nothing in weight.

COOL.

sure its nice,.... but to be honest a "smaller PSU or with only soldering pad alone so people can put there need size cable on it would be better,...

I have a ZMR 250 with ET Vector since 2 years and the hardest part was the PSU cables, same with my Mini Skywalker, the regulare size Vector can be fit in most designs.


How many people really need a 6S / 120Amp Power supply, a nice smaller one would be nice.
