Help!
What the heck is difference between these FC's?

I posted another thread here about two days ago asking for input on my parts list. Well, good thing I asked, my parts list was junk. So I started from scratch again. But I've looked at so many flight controllers with various sensors and various firmwares and prices and I'm just lost. I'm not an electronics newbie, I can see some variances in the chips, but what I'm lacking is understanding how that affects the quad and the firmware's capabilities. For instance, most of these are Atmega 8-/16-bit chips - is the one STM32 chip that much better? Can someone provide me some basic info on the differences between these? Why would I want the Crius AIO for twice as much as the "Upgrade Version" SE one?

Crius All In One V1 - $70
IOI Mini MultiWii - $59
MWC MultiWii SE - $54
Upgrade Version MWC MultiWii (STM32) - $43
Crius Upgrade Version MW Standard Edition - $39

If you just want to fly anything will work.

If you're getting 8bit junk, about the only sensible choice is the rctimer / crius pro thing

Hi timecop.
I have a few doubts about Naze32:

What are the sensors used in it?
How do I load the firmware into it? Using arduino IDE?
What are the firmwares that can be loaded? (baseflight, MW, any other?)
Can extra sensors/modules be added? Like GPS via i2c?

Thanks,

Vineet

If you can't handle reading (every one of your questions is answered in the naze32 thread) then you should just buy the rctimer thing I linked above.
