What you see in google code is really a clone of AfroFlight.

I'm currently working on pipoFig and then I'll port pipo FW to 32bit.

Well... is there any way we could have boards to developp?
Dialfonzo,
What do you mean? If you're interested in development we can continue in PM.

But something tells me its not hardware thats stopping you.

Just like you know i am not a programmer myself.
well.. i can code some real simple thing and undersand.. but

But i would like a project where each other help ..
In fact.. it's never a good idea to code in your side alone.

I saw the STM32 Discovery before.. Looks okay.
I should work with the ST Libraries and not Leaflab Libs..

hi,
you can use tc's board for example.
erez tends to clone the base.
the multiwii sw is a pain to modify.
i am taking the driver base and start to mod on top
of the existing drivers.

the path would be tc's board.

but what about your frames.
what do you have at the moment.
need at least one

For quad...

340mm


170mm


Don't remember right now but that's a 70mm 45mm mounting FC that is on

hi,
the pictures do look nice.
now you need to adapt to the new size of the board.
the largest and smallest quad are of interest.

zeroGravity PIPO32 - Casing REV1


Hi All,

I know i post a lot about casing.
Sorry to take that much space on the thread...

Here is the REV1 of the case for full board with Shield.

I will be able to make it on a CNC machine but now i want to try a shop that do 3D printing.

Here is what i have ordered (See linked picture)
I made some change from the previous pictures

- Encased screw on the top
- Remove some material on the bottom

Ordered the top and bottom in white and the center in red.

TOP
MIDDLE

The chip has a lot of memory and is very fast. Why would you need another spi chip?

Fair disclosure: I'm also building a 32bit board. I know that the easiest thing is to actually build the board. The biggest issue is software, I know this from experience. You can have the greatest board in the world, if you don't have software its not going to be any good.
And I have seen a great number of fantastic products go by the waste side for the lack of software updates and or support. I agree, making hardware is the easy part.

We will work on the same hardware us and PIPO32.

So ... double the chance to have a working FC.

First thing on the list is porting AfroFlight on this hardware.
(Which is a multiwii port... lol)
