Yes, people are trying to do that, what a shame. We all know what the board is worth but we chose to share with everyone.

Its a full MEMs device, it uses quality sensors, its tiny, has a 4 layer PCB and excellent noise and vibration handling. Several unique hardware features such as S-BUS support and you know all the others. It can fly Multirotors, heli and will be a full UAV in planes when we get more work done on the software.

We are not dumb, we know the market value is at least double what we sell it for. We are about community and sharing but rather than respect what we have done and shared with everyone, some grubbies are try enrich themselves and over charge you guys.

I will say that people should never mixed up kindness with weakness, we are watching exactly what is happening and if you think CopterControl is a game changer, wait till you see the Pro/INS!

So far we have stated we will also use the same community model for that but remember that there are a lot of PhD.s and scientists involved in OPenPilot, we will change things based on new data and how CopterControl is treated and how the community supports it.

Thats ASHAME. If it was possible I would expose them guys but there is no way to warn other Ebay users. I do not want some to ruin a GOOD thing for everyone. I am VERY thankfull of the low price of the board and am SURE you could charge MUCH more. I think this proves that you guys arent driven by money.

Ordered the board last night, if it works great on my Y6 I want to get a 2nd one for another project. Looks like the US store only ships out Tuesdays and Thursdays, going to be a tough wait.

BTW... There are ways to deal with the ebay issue. I've seen people make throw away ebay accounts and then put extremely high bids on items to get the item de-listed for fraud. I've never done this so don't really know what the repercussions are for the high bidder though. I just know its done a lot.

Well guys i got my cc board in today its looks great and very small its comes with wiring harness i guess u would call it that. and u get the board. the only cons i see out of the package is the packaging it self. it comes in a small envelope type with bubble rap inside and that's the only protection there is, it could have broke but it didn't, Maybe in the future it could have a better packing solution other than that it looks great cant wait to use it
