I just received this board that I bought from Foxtech.
I am not affiliated with the vendor nor the manufacturer. Just a hobbyist testing and playing with all the different controller boards out there except for the MK Mikrocopter board.
I put it on my larger quad. The quad is using four Avroto 770 kV motors and Turnigy 30 A ESCs. Power is 4 cells 5800 mah that I just so happened to have lying around. Propellers are 11 X 4.7 APCs.
None of my MultiWii boards can fly this frame combination without a lot of grief. It wobble and oscillate until I almost crash it a few times. The KK blue board is better as far as controllability.
This AQ50D board (that's what it said on the manual and I have not idea what is the real name/number of this thing) is truly plug and play. No GUI, no computer hook up. Just mount it, plug it in adjust the servo reversing on my transmitter, calibrate the board on the quad and fly.
Perfectly right off the deck. With a very small hint of oscillation. Nothing substantial for a heavy quad.
Forward flight is fine. A bit of lag on the control. It wants to return back to level during slow flight and the nose tuck down a bit on faster forward flight. Pulling the quad on the turn took a fair bit of stick movement.
It doesn't seem to be a board designed for acrobatic but for smooth hovering around it is pretty good.
I have only turned the gain pot to about 65 percent so far and it is holding very solid.
I can hear the motor speed controller combinations do have a minor amount of jumpiness every once in a while on a regular basis but I cannot see too much movement on the vehicle itself.
Overall I am quite please with the board and I think it has some potential.
