Seeing as you live in the US, support an American company (no offence intended to our overseas friends), get an Apm2.5. You wont regret it.

It's $56.82

That's not that low cost when the Crius AIO cost $62.99 from RCTimer or $57 from dx.com with better newer sensors.

Crius AIO works great with MPNG.

Or even the New Mega board from HobbyKing at $65 including gps. But it's only MultiWii for now till someone figures it out.

You talking about DIY drones correct? they seem to over price on everything they wanted 200 or 250 for my apm 2 but found it on another site for 150 with gps and a free ultrasonic module... so i just went that rout it only took 8 days to show up... i have nothing personal against DIY drones there prices are just too hi...

well lets give credit where credits due, diy drones are the one's that created the APM and came up with the design. they are based in CA, USA so i'm going with whatever they are selling. sick of seeing US based organizations design something and get ripped off by some guys in a foreign country. half the time this Asian stuff is cheap junk anyway that comes with 0.0 ZERO support, breaks easily and updates / support is dropped a week after you buy it.
