yes even if the part looks scary, but it fits on 5V.
Is light and small, and the sensors are located on one point. super

Because you need a converter logic.
But has also Flydumini 3.3 V are available, do not worry.

Not sure, if I've found the motors at hobbyking. Is the following motor one of the above mentioned ones?

Again for German readers only, here is a test of 10 different motor sets for multicopters I have flown in the past: http://www.microcopters.de/artikel/m...otoren-im-test.

There will surely be new motors to test. I'm not yet sure wether to expand this article or write a new one each 10 motors. But I will find a solution that suits by time.

the 3 part names are printed on the flydumini, when you put the right components in it you have 3.3V on the 3.3V pin, thats it.

btw, i got my quad more stable then warthox had it, ok i dont fly flips, just smooth rounds and i had some reinforcements underneath.
But there is a big difference, setup of a mini is a bit more picky it seems, but you can get stable, really stable, allready got it.

Hi guys,

I also have a problem with camera stabilization.
The servos work when powering with pin46, but when moving the copter, it shutdowns the board and then restarts.... Strange, and a bit problematic during flight!

I've connected a GPS, the led driver, the sonar and APC220, could the board be overloaded?

Any other idea?

Thanks.
Bastien

PS: the flydumini looks incredible, Paul, and the vids are promising, congrats!

sound like the 5V regulator you use is overloaded which causes a low drop, so the CPU shuts down.
