RCTimer is having a sale on two very interesting sets that include GPS and 433MHz telemetry.
First is the AIOP-UAV, an AllInOnePro MultiWii/MegaPirate controller, a successor to the AIO controller board we reviewed in summer, complete with GPS module and 433MHz telemetry for data downlink and inflight flightplan updates.

Features:

  • Supports MegaPirateNG and MultiWii firmware
  • Up to 8-axis motor output
  • 8 input channels for standard receiver
  • 4 serial ports for debug/Bluetooth Module/OSD/GPS/telemetry
  • 2 servo output for PITCH and ROLL gimbal system
  • Servo output to trigger a camera button
  • 6 Analog output for extend device
  • I2C port for external sensor or device
  • Separate 3.3V and 5V LDO voltage regulator
  • ATMega 2560 Microcontroller
  • MPU6050 6 axis gyro/accel with Motion Processing Unit
  • HMC5883L 3-axis digital magnetometer
  • MS5611-01BA01 highprecision altimeter
  • FT232RQ USB-UART chip and Micro USB port

The USB port, one of the major issues we had with the original AIO board,  has allegedly been reinforced.

Price: $124.99 at rctimer.com

 

 

 

Second is the ArduFlyer UAV set with GPS and 433MHz telemetry. This is mainly for those who prefer ArduPilot over MultiWii.

Features:

  • Arduino and ArduPilot Mega 2.5 Compatible!
  • Includes both right angle and straight pins for I/O, allowing user to customize as needed.
  • Includes 3-axis gyro, accelerometer and magnetometer, along with a high-performance barometer
  • Onboard 16Mbit Dataflash chip for automatic datalogging
  • Digital compass powered by HMC5883L chip, included on the main board.
  • Invensense’s 6 DoF Accelerometer/Gyro MPU-6000.
  • Barometric pressure sensor upgraded to MS5611-01BA03, from Measurement Specialties.
  • Atmel’s ATMEGA2560-16AU and ATMEGA32U-2 chips for processing and usb functions respectively.

These prices are very reasonable and both boards  have excellent sensor hardware.
