Another(not HK) new APM Mini?

Hi all first post here. I did a search on the threads and could not find anyone talking about this so here goes....

I found this on ebay and goodluckbuy. smaller and cheaper than the HK mini version of APM.

.http://www.goodluckbuy.com/miniapm-v...?&currency=gbp

Anyone got one? What do you think?

I have been getting back into a MINI Skywalker and was thinking of doing a mini/micro FPV UAV on the cheap. at 35X35 this could fit in a mini skywalker just about.

I was also thinking it would fit better in more models (also the full size version) if the APM board could be mounted side on ie the arrow on the board would still face forwards but rotated through 90 degrees along the longitudinal axis if that makes sense. Has a version of the code been written for this?

Wow, this is small. I wanted to know the review too. Wish anyone could post if this thing as good as the full size version of APM. How to fit in the 3dr power module?

How about this one?

Well mine finally arrived :-) It's really tiny which is great for my next project. Connected it via Mission Planner without problems.

Will post a detailed review over the next few days.

which version did you get in the end seems there are a few options. Also I haven't seen anything anywhere about mounting the board on its side. is this possible?

Mounting on side is usually a software issue. If memory serves the APM software has an option for the mounting arrangement.

this makes a mini APM fit in lots of places! i'll look through the options in mission planer. but do you have any links to others who have used it this way?

This 'mini' APM board is being discussed in some detail on this thread:
http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2182722

It is available from elsewhere for substantially cheaper than infinityhobby (See thread linked).
