Complete IMU based Autopilot system for hobby UAV direct from China

This is very cool: http://forum.feiyu-tech.com/index.ph...e67b5d6bfd2a75

Complete ready to install, well supported IMU based autopilot systems for Hobby, Science, or ? Anyone in the USA, Europe etc can order them up and get one.

Are vendors here in the USA allowed to post on Chinese forums our products and make them available in the Chinese markets? Seems unfair they can sell a product here we can't offer there.

Rhetorical questions

... well, no, but I feel like I may as well start digging one to live in soon.

LOL ya it could get scary. Its now so easy you do not even need to have real training. I like the way our systems work. Makes you "think" a bit more.

Anyhow they have been pushing the flight stabilization side of this over in the FPV section for some time. Looks like now they have painted black with lead paint and are now selling an AHRS with lead based powder coating.....

Hoping for a chance

Just be clear, I'm happy for them. In a fair competition sort of way. They have the right to make a living and better themselves.

I just want that same right available to the good vendors here in the USA who may feel their products could compete in a fair and open market. Unfortunately I am pretty sure vendors here are forbidden still to sell the same things there that are being openly advertised for sale here by them.

Best way to compete here is to allow us to sell there not restrict us and allow them free access to not only their market but ours also right? Let the better product collect the business. I mean their money is just as green as ours right?

I agree. Unfortunately our laws restrict us due to export. I was not trying to be unfair. We all know they are not allowed to sell such items. Just being funny although many may not find the humor......

Anyhow Its shown to be good for the FPV guys and the flight videos of autonomous flight showed to work. They should have no problem selling a boat load. I belive the cost is in the $1300 range but that may have changed.

Your humor was not lost on me.

This is a pretty widely read thread. Hopefully someone who knows someone may follow it and spread the word.

We are no less secure if the Chinese were flying AttoPilots in their less restrictive airspace. Maybe they are (less regulation means more chances of an accident)...but not US. I seriously doubt the Chinese Military needs an AttoPilot given another thread showing what they have for sale now is well past that.

You are dead on there. Some of the stuff we have seen would rival CloudCaps best. We by no means feel we are superior. For some reason our Govt. does......

Can you point us to this other thread?

They are by no means "behind", if anything they are "ahead"
