Wohoo Chinese 10DOF sensor board hooked up to arduino for test and mutliwiiconf see's sensor data
Nice bit of kit that @plexer, glad its all hooked up and reading right. When do you think your maiden flight will be? (time scale)
I have hopefully managed to grab myself a bargin price brushless gimbal to tinker with which is my next enjoyment.... after just completing my first beer brew at home, 20 litres of larger brewed, had my first taste test on Friday and it was delicious! but the final date when its all ready is the 27th of this month so don't expect much communication from me after that until its all drank lol
Electronics bay mounted with flight controller and also have the IMU added now.
Few bits of neoprene to give a bit of isolation on the screws.
Running it with the IMU and using MultiWiiWinGui I get a rock steady 0 from the gyro's when it's sitting on the ground.
Artificial horizon shows it climbs and dives and rolls as expected

The batteries and charger will be coming from the UK hobbyking warehouse so that's 48 hour delivery. pay day is weds.
The radio I am planning on getting though is going to take a while to arrive as the esc's took about a fortnight so going to be a couple of weeks yet.
Bought the 9ch FS Sky rx/tx combo and it arrived today.
Batteries and charger arrived yesterday so a bit more wiring and we should be good to g
ooo exciting! good luck on your maiden...remember keep the stick movments slow and steady
Few more bits of wiring and connectors etc... to get, waiting for delivery of xt60 connectors for the main wiring harness and just 3D printing some last little mounting plates.
