It seems slightly different again, Have you tested it with the mystery ESC's?

edit: it looks like you might be able to buy the mystery one from their website direct.

In the 777model sign up it seems they don't have USA or Europe as an address option?? Or is it a site glitch of some sort?
Cheers,
Jim

In my gerber viewer the drill holes looks misaligned. I used SeeedStudio's CAM job.
I've used CAM350.
Yes, It is misaligned NC drill files.
It's same issue on my post. 274x export problem.(http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showp...postcount=1315)

Dual ST gyro board file

Just in case someone else needs to make the PCB for ST (LPx550AL) gyros, here are the schematic & PCB. It's compatible with Kaptein's flight controller. I've been flying with them, and I'm quite happy with it. Will have some aggressive flying videos when I find my hat camera again

More information about them:

Hope someone find it useful

how hard would it be to use the gyros from a wii motion + w/ this setup? the reason i ask is because the wm+ is about 1/2 the cost of the hk401b gyros. i don't know how to program, so this is just a question in a effort to bring down part count and also cost.

Now that I'm getting used to flying in heading hold mode, I'm fairly certain I'd prefer it over an always on auto-leveling quad copter, but it would be nice to be able to flip a switch when you want to effortlessly hover/steer around the park, or have the copter instantly right itself when orientation is lost. After looking at videos from the FY-20A I think there's fair chance it would fit that need on any KK based multicopter. Unlike FMA Copilot with IR sensors, it uses 3 gyros and 3 accelerometers. It seems very straight forward to hook up with aileron, elevator & rudder in/outputs and a channel controlled mode switch (off/3D/stabilize). BevRC.com has the lowest price so far at $115, but that's still too much for me to risk on an auto-leveling feature that should, but may not work, on a multi rotor copter.

If anyone tries one out on their quad, please do share your thoughts on it. Especially if you are able to quickly toggle between off and stabilize modes to instantly self-right your copter.

@Scorpia, Mystery is just a 're-label' and this ESC sells under a few different labels - Recently HKing has started selling them under their hKing 'Blue Series' label for less $ with a 12A and a 40A for 6S. It's all the same thing - same card. I have used it for EDF. The best ESC for 4S 30Amps is the HobbyWing Clone $9.99 at RCTimer - They are $5 cheaper than Turnigy Plush 30A and exactly the same thing - HobbyWing Factory - works with Turnigy LED program card.

its for tri copter only.
The signal is compatible with any other ESC, but you wont be able to fly if you replace that servo with a motor. Mixings of controls for tri and quad copters are not alike. The signal for the servo only changes when yaw happens.

bob I had tried the factory wii motion plus module and thought the hold on the yaw was a little weak. Second I tried the wii motion plus clone and it looked very promising with the three mems gyros and was easier to hook up. Unfortunately I had a short which blew out the yaw gyro before I actually got to fly it and haven't had time to try again.

The answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind....
http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1246831

(I'd say a third. I paid $15 for one three-axis WMP, while the HK401Bs cost $15 per axis.)

Bob, the mixing for a quad is not that difficult, but different from mixing for a tri. There are just a few lines of code that need to be changed in the "baronpilot" software to make it work for a quad. As soon as I have my hardware sorted out (the quad crashed yesterday, and I still have to hook up the WMP sensors), I'll assist on the software. Either by publishing my own, or by modifying baronpilot.
