THe FC is basically, an Arduino Mega, so any GPS compatible with that. At work now but will look into gathering more info and providing links to compatible units during my lunch break.

This is for the MegaPirate firmware. I am sure the same would apply for MultiWii... but who would want to run MultiWii on this anyway??

Is this the same board that Terri Wang is selling with the X250? If not, what is the difference may I ask?

Hey Bryan,

No--this is not the same, but close. The X250 has an on board MWC with accelerometer, gyro, and barometer and runs on an Atmel 328 chip.

This board has all of the same sensors, but runs on a Atmel Mega chip which is a bit newer, bigger, and has more pins.

The extra pins allow you to hook up an octocopter or V8 and also provide more pins for accessories line camera gimbal servos, GPS, etc. Note, however, that the GPS uses Tx/Rx pins and that would be the same for the X250.

To sum it all up: this one has more pins which means, as a matter of opinion, you have more potential uses.

Hope that helps.
