Jussi is currently talking to distributors for North America - but that'll take some time. We need to make sure that these are supporting the project and not just reselling the items.

If you need a set soon you can order some from ViaCopter in Denmark. Jussi's company is registred for export so you can substract 25% from the EU sales prices.

AQ6 FC: http://viacopter.eu/shop/flight-cont...blic-beta/8-95
ESC32: http://viacopter.eu/shop/escīs/autoquad-esc32/17-93

btw: the "Beta" tag refers to the firmware/software, not the hardware!

To give you some more to feed your confidence, take a look at the playlists with flight videos from our beta testers:

Kinderkram, is there any plan to man-up and drop the beta label, perhaps on the first public anniversary? Or will that always be the ace card to deal with reports of bugs?

Heck, noooo! That'll be July/August then.
After half a year of public beta testing I'm confident we'll get rid of that lable soon.

Seriously: if all works well with the latest revision we'll have a release candidate with a "stable" tag.

Hmmmmm,
Thinking I might try to create an automated device based on a 3 axis gimbal to automate the dynamic calibration... Magnetic affects need to be considered carefully but the thought of a geometrically "perfect" and repeatable Calibso is appealing.

I won't hold you back!

But the device needs to be big enough to carry a fully equipped copter.
And best use only wood or plastic to avoid irritations of the sensors by magnetic material.

Dialfonzo, looking forward to the case. Are you going to share the files for those who can print at home or?

Anyone Should I order Graupner MX-20? Or just use one of my Futaba 8fgs? I kind of am fearing the S-Bus stuff Ive seen on forum and wiki.

Ok, the case has been ordered for a final test fit with the AQ6.
Once all is tested then we will talk about files and such..
