today we going in production with the first batch of micro brain 5.1 board. After see some micro drone based on vrbrain fly , we decide to support the development of this great platform ... so we start to develop a special revision of VRbrain 5 for this kind of products where the small dimension and low weight are very important factor.
This is fully total autonomous platform available for micro drone.
These are the specification :
CPU STM32F4 VR OS based on NuttX kernel.
1 EEPROM or FRAM device for parameter storage.
IMU MPU6000 SPI.
MSIC Barometer 10 cm resolution.
8 PPM Radio RC Input .
8 PWM ESC - SERVO Output.
1 SBUS Radio Input compatible with Futaba SBUS and Spektrum ,too
1 SBUS Servo Output.
SD Card Reader
1 RGB LED
2 LED Output
1 Buzzer Output
On board telemetry module availabe at 433 / 868 mhz. (option)
connector for external VR GPS + MAGNETOMETER
dimension 4x4 .
native support of APM Firmware :
Custom firmware available for boat and Paramotor Drone.
I think that special new mode ad hybrid loiter and drift are very interesting for these great toys :)
some example of micro drone developed by Tommyleo and AleBS
Some info and example are available on italian forum baronerosso :
