BLACK VORTEX New flight controller for MegaPirate code...
I have finished my new board for multi rotors system. This board designed with Mega Pirate Syberian. THANKS THANKS THANKS for your help and one board for you This board designed for Mega Pirates code. Please write if you need info about this board. I make test this week and start sell this board.
Board features and details....
HMC5883L Triple Axis Magnetometer
BMA180 Triple Axis Accelerometer
BMP085 Barometric Pressure Sensor
ITG3200 Triple-Axis Digital-Output Gyro
NEO-6Q Ublox GPS receiver
Atmega2560 16MHz 5V
3 pcs Status led A,B,C RED, Yellow, Green
2 pcs Tx Rx status LED for FTDI USB
2 pcs LED for 3.3V 5V power status
8 pcs 3 pin connectors for servo or motor ESC
2 pcs 3 pin connectors for Pan Tilt servo
8 pcs 3 pin connectors for 8Ch RC receiver
1 pcs for sonar (two type avail)
1 pcs for xbee or other wireless modules
1 pcs LIGHT switch up to 8A for LED or other lights
5 pcs ANALOG input for external components
2 pcs 3.3V 500mA for external components
2 pcs 5.0V 500mA for external components
1 pcs for GPS antenna
1 pcs I2C and UART interface for external board
1 pcs ISP connector for Atmega2560 programming
1 USB based on FTDI chip. Arduino software compatible
Onboard 500mA 5V voltage regulator for external components
Onboard 500mA 3.3V voltage regulator for external components
Low noise LDO voltage regulator for all sensors and GPS
Hole 4 pcs 2.5mm hole (45x45mm mount distance same as flyduino)
Input voltage 6-18V
MEGA Pirate and MultiWii code compatible.
To program the board, one should add the board definition to the Arduino IDE:
- close the Arduino IDE if it was open
- copy the file attached to the arduino-0022\hardware\arduino folder
- in the Arduino IDE select the board type 'Black Vortex (ATmega2560)'
Now you can work with this board as with usual Arduino Mega 2560 (with bunch of sensors of course)
Board alignment with Megapirate software is USB socket backwards.
Here`s MegaPirate code for Black Vortex with QuadX by default.
No need to tweak the code, just flash, pass the setup and fly.
GPS is working too.

low fuses 0xFF
high fuses 0xD8
extended fuses 0xFD

Yeah, it is the paramount of the arduino and sensors development hehe
CSG, you forgot to mention that the MultiWii can be applied here too.
And no more messing with 2560 baudrates since the tailored 1280 bootloader and general FTDI chip instead of U8 are used.
Also there is an upcoming MegaPirate Plane that fits this board too. But keep it hush
Anyway thanks. You did a great job in a very short terms.

Nice Board CSG! I remember someone suggested you some time ago (http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showp...&postcount=356) to do exactly something like that..... and you did it right!
Final price seems reasonable (expecially for eu guys like me) but maybe 10-20 bucks less will sound better...

@CSG - is power-supply only possible with an external 6-18V source or also with the bec of an esc?
