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.

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

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!
