Cool ! Is there any reason not to update to the DIMU? I've only done my static calibrations, not the dynamic yet, so it's not like I will have lost much time if I need to repeat the calibrations.

Many thanks!

David :)

Edit: Ordered! :D

Precompiled Firmware for both AQ6 board revisions can be downloaded from our public FTP here:
ftp://ftp.autoquad.org/3/334693_22529/a ... erimental/

Once we have confirmed stable versions, they will also appear in the usual download section.

Hi,
Happy to see that. But nothing to get the ICs for the can bus on the ESC32 or I am sleeping again ? :oops:

Excellent as always!

Is it possible for someone to please post a couple of links to the CAN bus receiver and capacitor for the ESC32's. I want to make sure I order the correct parts.

Cheers

James

The chip is an Sn65hvd232d and can be ordered for ~1$ at Farnell and other electronic suppliers.

Yep:

I´ve read somewhere that replacing C21 is the hardest part of the job.

I hope Viacopter & Flyduino will offer kits for DIYers soon. ESC32s with onboard CAN chips are in the works btw.

Soldering 0603 caps by hand is not that complicated!

I'm using a Ersa MULTIPRO 930CD soldering iron (http://www.ersa.com/art-0930cd-358-1891.html) with a 0.4mm pencil-point tip (832UD - http://www.ersa.com/art-0832ud-sb-358-1840.html).
The 'expensive' part of my equipment is the solder - a 0.35mm Sn95,5AgCu0,7,F-SW34 solder wire from EDSYN (EDSYN SAC35100).

Use a good pair of tweezers and you're done!
