The "Revolution" is a Chinese invention based on the real revolution.  If you can figure out who in China actually manufactures it you could ask them.

Most Chinese clones vary the parts they use, replacing mostly the voltage regulators with lower quality/spec ones that are cheaper.

Information on the original revolution is in the project repository at https://bitbucket.org/librepilot/librepilot/src/a853d511c8bcaa8cb68922af177106cb788c2b77/hardware/Production/OpenPilot%20Revolution/?at=next

The original "Revolution" do not exist, that only a chinese name.
There is CC3D and Revolution boards, this mean two different boards.

All you need to build a original Revolution board is provided in link posted above.
Pcb here for example: https://oshpark.com/shared_projects/8Dz8BT1f

Hello.
I need your help, please.
I have Revolution board (soldered by me).
I successfully updated bootloader and firmware over the USB (GCS 'Firmware' tab) with soldered BL pads.
But when I break BL pads and reconnect board over the USB again device not recognezed by GCS. 
My PC found some device and after several seconds loss it (I hear special windows sounds).
How can I investigate the issue's cause?
Must I connect the receiver to the revolution board in this case?

Thank you for reply.
But what about receiver?  Should it be connected to the revolution board to recognizing by GCS?

receiver, and even the onboard RFM module are not matter

Is there a list of all needed components and where to get them? I would love to build a REVO myself as well using quality components and such.
