Camera added and just plugged in with no soldering needed.

Build was pretty easy even though no instructions were found,
In conclusion this is a fun toy if you have a laminate floor , it does run on carpet by changing the idle speed ( hold the arm button and it steps up each time )
I think if you had 2 to race against each other it would be a blast.
It is pretty much indestructible too so fun to just let the friends and family have a go.

Doesn't it bother you that these guys are running my open source adaptation of silverware "whooverware" without posting their code or giving credit to the silverware community?

In fact BAD (alexander) takes credit for the programming but has no public code posted.

I didn't realise it was your version of silverware or that they didn't have your permission etc , have you tried contacting them and asking for some recognition?

In my experience so far most of these companies will just assume that any open source firmware is fair game unless challenged.
I will certainly bring it up with them and see what they say.
Seems there is a LOT of interest in silverware lately , I've used it since near the beginning when silverxxx first announced he had written it...

Well it may have not been my exact whoover version. But the point stands weather it was my work based on silver's and the silverware community, or if it was just based on silver's main repo. Yes I asked when he originally started posting on FB, and he was secretive about what he was running - seemed to want the credit and attention for himself as if he were innovating something totally new. I have also asked the company selling this board and others have done the same. The only difference between this and mine I see was that the yaw stick and roll stick are swapped. I prefer the steering on yaw. Anyway, everyone knows I stood on the shoulders of greatness with the advances I have made in silverware. I would not have accomplished anything without silver and the community. So it pains me to see our open source project monetized without proper credit and transparency. It's basically an open source violation.

NBD is in the same boat right now, bragging about OSD in silverware and everything they are doing with the project in closed facebook groups ... but where is their code?????

Shameful. Everything I'm part of, FC's included, is right out there for public review. That's how open source works.

Thanks for informing of that, I will defo ask him to put this right.
Can't see any reason to NOT mention that it is based on silverware and your fork , I would of thought that would be a selling point to be honest..

Silverware community has always been open honest inovative and fun and it pains me to see problems like this.

Nbd and osd ?
What group is that?
I've thought about osd for ages on silverware...

I even bought an osd break out board to give it a go a while back but like many things I never got it done...mainly because the weight of the break out board was a bit much for my little quads.

Yes it's very dishonest and totally goes against what the true quad community is all about Travis. Can you give some details on this FB group and who the Hell is NBD

Hi Canino!
Nice track there, the leds really make it look good.
The controls are a bit sensitive but you get used to it after a while, I also tried my taranis with the multimodule and that made it more controllable.

Thanks, my buddy had problems. The first track we designed was a little more longer and exciting but harder as the width was narrower. So we eventually went with a loop.
Yes especially steering is sensitive. They should've added more expo/curves in the firmware. Ofcourse you could add that in the taranis.

Yes I'm the taranis it's easy to add, my wife had problems for the first battery but soon got the hang of it...
Good training for sensitive quad flying maybe lol.

My multimodule for the taranis arrived last month, but havent had time yet to use it. Been having fun with some rc cars lately mostly. Also thought of hacking the module onto my flysky gt3c. But i probably wont do that and leave it for the taranis.

Wasn't there a way to pull a hex? Is the board B03?

NBD is New Bee Drone by the way.

I think it's a b03 board I didn't look that close though.
I've never tried to pull a hex
