Eagle Tree Micro Vector Flight Controller + OSD


The Micro Vector





This week I received the Micro Vector from Eagle Tree Systems.

My intention is to fit this into either my 180 or 220 quad over the next couple of weeks, I will be updating this review as time goes on to talk about it but here is a look at the controller its self.

The Micro Vector brings the feature Eagle Tree are well known for such as integrated OSD and advance sensors options into a much smaller package ideal for race quads or fixed wing with limited space, Its approx 38 X 38 X 10 mm with case or 36 x 36 x 7 mm without case and has the usual 30 x 30mm holes for stacking as well.

One of the huge advantages to the Vector unlike almost all the other controller in this size class is the full GPS support, Eagle Tree offer a duel band GPS module for advanced GPS flight modes such as Position Hold, RTH, and Waypoints thats plug and play, it also supports the ET Current sensor as well as being compatible with many others feeding voltage and current data straight into the OSD.

While they have cut down on size they have not cut features and it supports antenna tracking and laptop position display available with EagleEyes FPV Station as well as all the other accessories including 12V/5V PSU/Current Sensor, Alerter LED/Buzzer, Pitot tube for Airspeed, and InfoPanel LCD Display, UART for telemetry including ET Open Telemetry, DragonLink, and Taranis.

The Package - Flight Controller & Cable Set





Included in the package is a card with all the detail of where to download manuals and software.










Flight Controller with OSD





Main Features

Built in OSD with COLOR GRAPHICS and fully customizable screens
Programmable video power control: Turn on/off your video camera and/or video transmitter using a radio switch, on arm/disarm, etc.
SkyGates Virtual Racing (Experimental Augmented Reality, Optional GPS required)
Built in Flight Data Recorder/data logger helps take out the guesswork if something goes wrong
Oneshot and Multishot ESC Protocols

Performance
32 bit microcontroller with DMA enhanced control loop running at up to 8 kHz, advanced PID and filter tuning from either the GUI, or stick menus at the field, the Micro Vector also fully supports Oneshot and Multishot.


The Micro Vector uses cable sets rather than having directly to the PCB, you can remove wires from the plugs that are not needed and this means you have less chance of damaging the board when soldering and its easily able to be swapped into other frames by just buying spare cable sets.















With Wiring fitted





Internal PCB









More Details


Standard 30.5mm mounting hole centers
Supports PWM, SPPM, Spektrum Satellite and S-BUS Receivers supported, with 4 types of RSSI
BLHeli ESC configuration compatible via the ÁV USB port
Compatible with most PDBs, including those with built in current sensors (or use our PSU)
Multirotor airframes: Racing Quadcopter, Standard Quadcopter, Tricopter, Y6, Hexacopter
Fixed wing airframes: Traditional, Elevon, V-tail

Overall the Micro Vector is an outstanding flight controller

Next Stop its Looking at the UI and Software
