Description: Replacement:GPS-09980. The v3 board comes with a dsPIC30F4011 CPU, an MMA7260 three axis accelerometer, and two dual axis IXZ500 gyros (instead of three LISY300AL gyros with v2). The IXZ500 gyros have enough vibration tolerance to be used in RC heli applications. This page is for reference only.
This is the new three axis UAV development board by Bill Premerlani. This board comes with a dsPIC30F4011 CPU, an MMA7260 three axis accelerometer and 3 LISY300AL gyros. It is intended for the do-it-yourselfer. By itself, it can be used to develop a three axis IMU controller. With the addition of an EM406 GPS receiver it can be used to develop a UAV controller for an RC car, plane, or boat. It comes with self-testing firmware that can serve as a starting point for you to develop your own control and navigation firmware. There is also fully functional, open source autopilot firmware available.
Note: On the 6 pin debug header, the pin next to the reset button is VPP, according to this convention.
