Your address + name is viewable by checking their "order status" page and only needing a order#, which are sequential.

I ordered it. I have been ordering from GB for a while now, I go way back when they did not have multirotors items yet. It's been a couple of years I have been dealing with them buying robotics electros, motors , escs etc. Their shipping is as slow as DX but it gets here. As far as security, I have no idea what would hackers do with my name and address. Paypal payments are secure, they can't get your CC number if you pay thru paypal.

I ordered 4 MK boards from them and I like the way they perform. I use them for sports flying or lazy sunday lawn micro quad fligths. For $22 bucks they're flawless. If you guys noticed they are stocking up on Multirotors stuff, I gave them the idea to bundle a cheap ARF multi rotor system using their existing products on their site(emails are prompt and they listen to customers requests). It's $140 ARF with fiberglass foldable frame 4 emax motors and pretty good quality 20 amp Escs and the black mk board 5.5 edition. now thats cheap! They now have the DJI wookong system and frames on their site I know a bunch of our RCG members are tempted to order from them, their prices are super cheap. I will try and point out the security issues with them and let's see what happens.

Just my 2cents,

KP.

Actually being in US I already have my address/name published on every corner of the intarwebz (including all that "crowd-stealing" crap like mylife, pipl, peekyou, etc.) thanks to all those white/yellow/pink/whatever-pages, lol... but really not that much some bad guy can do having that info...
I would buy that FF if it would be possible to turn it into CopterControl, but MWC-like... nah, I already have three collecting dust.

Eh... How much of a "cc-like" do you want to make it?
It's digital gyros /acc on I2C... so code could be adjusted to make PIOS run but... It probably won't be as good as analog sensors sampled at high rate...
Plus there's no USB so the telemetry/configuration stuff would have to be done over serial.

Yeah, I know, that's why I'm not really interested. Of course I would prefer something "almost-exactly-like-cc"...

So firmware is freely available from that dji site?
Does it include altitude hold code and should it work soldering a bmp85 or how that baro is called...

So, goodluckbuy provided chinglish instruction and PC software.
Actually, instruction is confusing, and says nothing about software and almost nothing about hardware.

More over, provided program is not in english (according to picture in instruction), and i can't start it on my XP'32bit. No errors or screens, just nothing happens.

Software ran fine here in Win 7. But it is mostly in Chinese so hard to tell what all it does.

Considering the esc PWM refresh rate of +-490Hz, at what rate should be the gyro readings then to see an improvement?
Could you explain the benefit of "oversampling"?

Thanks,
manu
