What a beast, Steve!

You could market it as an ultimate tool for real estate owners protecting their property from burglars.

But don't let one of those drone paranoiacs see it or you will have ABC at the doorsteps soon and breaking news like "Armed private drones over the US!"

If that's a FPV setup as well, it sure would be ton of fun!
I can picture your colorful polka dotted squirrels...

Yes it's FPV on 5.8 ghz, the camera is on the barrel. The Xbee you see is to receive the uplinked position of my head to control the position of the gun. It worked but I never got it to work as smoothly as I wanted. It had a direct relationship to head movement which I found to be annoying to move my head that much. I found I could just yaw for direction and control the pitch with my slider. Small corrections in pitch were with the elevator.

Once we've got object tracking & following working you could watch the AQ go on an autonomous squirrel paint mission on your TV.

btw: artists usually prefer neutral canvases:

Next batch will be offered around end of September. Availibility will be announced then.
To be on the safe side you could use the notification functions of either Jussi's or Paul's shop.

Flyduino is working on that, a 'box' with integrated ground plane for the GPS antenna. It's not ready yet but looks promising from the idea's I've seen

That is fantastic, it really makes AP much easier.

I see it was post-stabilized, but it doesn't matter, I know AQ6 is superior in comparison of all the FC right now, but I want to see it in a AP OCTO. I don't want to see the first one.

Thanks
That could be soon! Im building a second octo identical to the one I already use but with this one will use the AQ.

I have already received the board so once some more bits and pieces come I will try it.

I still did not see a mix table for an octo plus, does anybody have one.

That is one serious machine and gimbal! Very much looking forward to seeing video from an AP/AP octo with an AQ too.
Kissys' gunship a few posts back is an octo...

Very nice machine, Apejovic!

Do you use a picloc or similar for the gimbal? I think you can skip it when using the AQ6 gimbal control. It even works very good with cheap components.
So I'm eagerly waiting for your experiences...
