Looks nice and clean, Neobot.
Its a bit bigger then timecops afro-mini though is it?
Or are the squares not centimeters?

I sent timecop a msg through his shop, he said he got spooked from the many orders he suddenly got.
Apparently theres a few lurkers who saw this thread and jumped him too.
But not to worry, he said he was making new ones.

So it was Naze, not Naza. My bad.

And whoo, shipped already, if the 32bit MPU is half as fast as timecop is, this thing will be great.

Its has an older sensor (just gyro, no Acc.), and no barometer, plus its twice as expensive.
It does have size on its side though, plus more then just quadcopter.
But the severe lack of sensors is a bit offputting, especially on a really small craft where every little bit counts.
Thanks for the effort though, but the afro-mini is still king of the hill it seems.

Flyduino's NanoWii mountholes are 30mm apart.
Is there a smaller board with these functions?

Naze32 is has mounting holes with the same dimensions, but has mag/baro onboard and could support up to octo+camstab....
Micro board is even smaller.

I tried MAG once or twice, way overrated.
Go anywhere past 20 degrees of incline and the whole thing flips out.
On the two boards I had it on, atleast.

I bought a miniWii board from someone on this forum before,
It was 35x35mm but even that didnt still my hunger for tiny flying things.
Hopefully the Afro-mini will not dissapoint, the whole "Naze firmware" thing still has me a little sceptical,
but its said that it configures just like a multiwii in the end so im sure it ll be fine.
I just hope I dont have to rely on the old crappy java multiwii_config, that thing crashed on all my systems.
Or is there perhaps other software to communicate with this 32bitter? From Naze or that baseflight business?
Ive got a heap of reading up to do, but some keywords would help.

Telnet? As in command prompt telnet? Eeeesh man..
I thought this new MPU was a step forward, not a step to 1985. :')
If I really have to start drumming code to configure PID's im already regretting this purchase..

Are you really interested how to configure this controller, or just trolling around?
Anyway, topics derailed to "teach me personally how to use naze32, i won't read docs", so i'm out.

Well first you give me "set gains in multiwii gui (or cli) and fly." so I just bought it thinking id worry about such trivial matters after building the quad,
and now you spring on me the fact that I apparently need to use telnet coding instead to configure this thing?

Ive looked it up, it seems you flash it like any other hex eater (kkuk boards for example) so that wont give me issues
You set feature switches through telnet, thats kinda meh compared to just editing firmware but I guess its fine (changing gyro orientation will be a huge pain though).

But what doesnt seem very clear to me, is how do you handle setting PID and such. By somehow using the multiwii client?
Which client version though, since for normal multiwii it has to match to the firmware version or it simply clams up.
