The Flip MWC FC. -MPU6050w/USB- $15 *USA*

Named after the main project "The Flip", a quad built to take all the abuse of acrobatic experts or learning acrobatics to noob pilots just building up their "stick-time". There is no real substitute for "flight-time" so this flight controller was designed to be the first one you will ever want to flip on purpose.

Affordable, Small, light-weight, and up-to-date sensors with USB

It was made for readytoflyquads.com and the RTF Flip Quad package, but we also want to offer this game changing Flight controller to everyone.

MPU6050 6 axis gyro/accelerometer
On board Micro USB port,stop looking for your FTDI module!
ATMega 328P Microcontroller
2 status LED
Serial port for bluetooth.
6 input channels for standard receiver
Up to 8-axis motor output (have to use S-PPM Receiver)
I2C socket for extend sensor, I2C LCD/OLED display
Separate 3.3V and 5V LDO voltage regulator

default shipping firmware: QuadX; 1220 Minthrottle; Motor stop on (Plug aNd Play with 95% of Xsetups)

Shop link : http://witespyquad.gostorego.com/fli...ontroller.html

Settings: Setup your Auto-level on a switch, so you have both modes rock'en for two awesome fly styles.

YAW RATE : move from 0 up to . 50 .

PID settings defaults are great. start with the LPF on 42HZ, then start knocking it down. (pre-set)

For the config.h file use: (USB port as front)
#define FLYDUINO_MPU //

Default QuadX firmware : https://www.dropbox.com/s/wdm1b221il...i_2_1_FLIP.zip

I have been lucky enough to fly this board quite a few times over the last couple of weeks as a Beta tester and I have to say that I am amazed at its performance. The stability and performance are the same or better than my $100+ boards! I am a fan of this board for sure! Happy flying!!

Well just checking in from time to time. I see Paul has done it again. he always seems to get ahold of some really good stuff. and he is a great guy. and this little board should make alot of people happy. A MWC board that you can beat the heck out of. LOL

Can't wait till I can start flying again, I will have to get one down the road.

It should work great, the 6050 is an awesome Gyro . They are in stock,in my hands, and will be tested once more before shipping. You will get them in no time, no mysteries here, you are not dreaming

I hope I am not dreaming because you already have my order

Just in case I have to monkey with the sensor orientation at some point when you say "usb connector in front #define flyduino" do you mean the arrow no longer points to the front with that config?

The boards with the arrow was the frist batch,those are almost gone. they no longer have the arrow on the board. I made a little sticker to go over them and just says "front".

Use #define flyduino , when you want to reflash. USB is the front of the board.

spoiler alert : also working on a I2C- GPS with compass little add-on board, But this one needs some more time ...

that is a 3DR Radio. I take my netbook out to the field and have total control over the PID. EXPO, and RCRate settings so you can dial your quad exactly how you like it. Then I would take off until you improve and want to unleash the beast more.

you and also do this with Bluetooth, but the range is limited, and you might have to keep re- reconnecting .
