When you do, think about adding a place for an accelerometer. The one that sure electronics sells a breakout board for ($6.50) looks compact.... Only two pins (SDA, SCL).

I think you must go onto this site: http://cafe.naver.com/multicopter

And there is a link to the shop and also there is mentioned that the design is from kaptainkuk

once a design is finalized, solder stencil but will you stay 0805 w/ the resitors/leds, caps could be a bit smaller than current but please don't go smaller than 0805 on those either. don't want to turn anybody off w/ a smt design

those gyros should be coming online shortly - they are up at mouser, just no stock and they are considered active on the st site. too bad st won't talk to the "little guy" in regards to, well, anything....

oh man, does 0805 make it that much larger? i just don't want your design to alienate people so we can still get enough made in bulk so they will be cheap like now NOOOOO on the 0402, i would have to buy a microscope to assemble and tweezers that have tips made from flea hair....

No, judging from the lenght of the initial flash, it seem like it runs on 1MHz.

Yes this is also my diagnosis. Sounds like CHKDIV8 is checked in the fuse settings. But I thought I had unchecked it when I programmed the chips. So we will see when they come back for surgery.

Yes, that is the correct capacitors. For the 100nF, I use ceramic multilayer.
