One of the things ive been talking over is the GPS module and its "use" . One of the "shortcomings" of the 8 bit Arduino platform is that when using so many pieces of tech ie gyro/accel/mag/baro and now gps you will start to get a bottleneck ( this will happen on 32bit as well purely because of the code according to the porters ) One way to relieve this is simply to remove the baro and mag and possibly the accel (maybe) the GPS part of the software can easily accomodate postion plus height and direction ( the one in your car does it very easily the multiwii code can easily support this)
As with ALL multiwii based FC ( including the "Rabbit" Afro32 and Naze32 just to name some 32 bit ports) it will all depend on the software now that the GPS is becoming the next must have on our flying machines lets see if the coders can actually make it work properly.............dont hold your breath though Multiwii doesnt process the gyro commands properly yet (According to a programmer)

fingers crossed for the future although i doubt i will buy one lol i dont use baro or compass and only bought the board i did because of the beter accel.

At the minute it is only a switch i believe for return to home and position hold , i dont know if they will implement waypoint planning but the response so far has been that return to home is the most important feature that users want.
As for the Naza... horses for courses m8 timecop ripped one apart on rcg to see what was inside.

8 channel m8 i'would use smaller but as usual GC had zero stock when i ordered. Going to move to Turnigy 9 when i get the cash together maybe. You really only need 5channel ie 4ch with a ch5 switch , i suppose it would come in handy if i were to explore gps etc but i have no intention of that, if i was going that far i would buy something complete.

No crashes with my Corona stuff but the RX's can be a little bulky , well on a micro quad they are on standard theyre normal.
