He does get a royalty, and I doubt an open source project would be patented.

Why don't you have a read of Rolf's actual thread on the controller instead of guessing here:

Hello! As a newbie in multi rotor helis, I also managed to buy one board from the first stash and also thinking to buy that 450 kit from rctimer. So I'll be also waiting for feedback and of course several tips and maybe settings for that quad and board. I would only ask if I should also order one programming card for those ESC-s and I guess I also need a Li-Po buzzer and I'm set.....right?!
Thank you I hope everything's gonna work out!
Regards, Alpar

Just looked at your video after some random surfing. Is the board that you reviewed the one sold by Hobbyking at $30? If so I just CANNOT believe it after my experience (disappointing I may add!) of my attempts with Mike Dammar's Spectrolutions board which relied on I.R. differentiation for levelling! (And in the UK for most of the time is impossible!)
The features you describe are, to me, unbelievable considering I was paying some $ 3-400 for my board!
I'm looking forward to your further videos.

Yes, this is the Hobbyking 30USD Board, with a BuddyCode the price i payed was 18USD ;_)

Again, great work from KaptainKuk! The original KK was the first affordable Multicopter Board, even when you had to strip 3 HK Heli Gyros for 14USD each and solder it yourself before the first complete Boards came up. Can't wait to see THIS ONE fly....

right! thanks I also read it on the other post, as I understood you need to connect a cable from the positive lead of the battery near that yellow component on the PCB. The ground does not need to be connected because it uses the ground signal from the PCB.
Thanks for the heads up!

Has anyone tried one of these boards. Just wondering seeing it is a 8bit controller and not 32 bit.

Where do you find Buddy Codes?

Thanks dutchcommando - Hopefully the PID settings will fix it.

Anyone got the self leveling to work so that the quad does not move around a lot.

EDIT: Just checked the board out on youtube and looks quite good. Guess it is worth buying.

Still awaiting its arrival.

the board gets its power from the ESC BEC, through servo output pin 1. (others have no +5V pin connected.... very smart! saves the hassle of cutting the red servo wire on three esc's)
the BEC from the ESC will provide the board with the needed 5V-6V.

if you can use 2s,3s,4s,5s,6s,7s etc etc etc is determined by your ESC (and motors)

so if your esc (with build in BEC) supports 3S, then the board can to.. it is powered by the bec, not the lipo directly.
