I am very very satisfied with the original Drotek 10dof (i don't have the aspirin) and i also have a clone of it bought 20$ with shipping.
I have used double sided tape and istalled the imu underneath the discovery board.
My opinion recently has changed as i prefer the imu to be located outside the autopilot board now...
The other 6 pin plug goes to the FTDI (or modem) cable.

Are you satisfied with the performance of the Aspirin.v2.2 or drotek 10dof imu or do you want to build a complete new imu, direct soldered on the stm32f4 discovery "add on board" ?

With the drotek imu the price could be pushed to around 50€ (with the stm32f4 discovery, without gps) which in my opinion is very attractive for beginners.
yours sincerely

Hi Heinrich!
Arghh we had the same idea :-D
A pcb companion for the stm32f4 discovery with all the needed hardware....
Anyway i think i can make a better companion-sensor pcb based on my flying experience :-)
With the size of our aircraft approaching if not exceeding 2m nowadays the discovery board is not that big.

Hi Chis,
you can look for same nuticopter projects in uk.
They fly with the discovery .
I think the code was free.

At last i found dome time and my discovery board is now an autopilot, big but it works never the less.
I need to do some more work on the PWM servo channels.
BTW i use the supplied stm32f4_discovery board file and the drotek 10dof imu.
Now i am thinking to make one that will fly using either this
or this
Which one you like? (the big one gives freedom to use almost any peripheral but it is big.
Don't ask why it is intended for my education and fun only.
