STEVAL-FCU001V1

Hi everybody!

I saw this new flight controller:
http://www.st.com/content/st_com/en/products/evaluation-tools/solution-evaluation-tools/sensor-solution-eval-boards/steval-fcu001v1.html

and at this time I see this firmware: https://github.com/STMicroelectronics-CentralLabs/ST_Drone_FCU_F401
Do you think it is possible to use it with librepilot?

Greetings
Fabrizio

There is an "evaluation board", but I don't think that there are any actual controllers yet.  First glance at the eval board it looks like for tiny brushed motors.

LibrePilot doesn't make hardware so first someone would need to make a board for more than tiny brushed motors, and then someone (a new or old developer) would need to write code for it, including sensors, GCS, diagrams, etc.  When we did this for Sparky2 it was several people working for several months.

So yes, it's possible, but not likely in the near future.

Ok thanks.
I love this kind of micro-quadrotors... In past I used the CC3D brushed with a HC-06 bluetooth module for the telemetry but now it seems that the CC3D brushed is not produced anymore. Are there any alternatives to use Librepilots?

There is a small board mod and some setup that some people here do to talk to brushed motors.  You could search forum or wiki for "brushed".

Thanks to this forum I use this setup:
-CC3D brushed
-HC-06 Bluetooth telemetry
-Racerstar 8520 8.5x20mm motors
-65mm Blade Propellers
-Home-made 3d frame

I saw that the STEVAL-FCU001V1 has the STM32F401 processor which is supported by other boards in this project so... I will buy one of this board and I start to play :D

You will need to add a specific target for this board and also add all the sensors drivers not already used in Librepilot :)
