How heavy is the AQ board and gps? Im building a shrediquette bolt clone and would like to use the AQ board on it, but am trying to keep weight down. I've looked on the website and on viacopter ect. but can't find the weight.

Also when is the next batch going to be made available?

Pretty sure only the knob s 'hardcoded ' on the 7c, as ch6, rest can be moved around. Manual is available on the futaba site for verification

The two voltage regulators make it heavy for a STM32 autopilot. The board weighs 28grams without the headers solder on. The ESC32 are very light but have no BECs. But thats ok because the board can power the ESC32 with it's on board BEC.

Nice results being an Hexa. Ive done a similar test with another controller on 7 and 6 motors. I hope I receive the aq6 soon so I can repeat the test with it and maybe.... 5 motors?

Andre, what's your point?

Why are you trolling other FC threads (at least the ones I'm reading) with the YS videos?

AQ position hold videos are more impressive anyway!
