This board features a multiple serial interface as well as a dedicated I2C interface. You can now plug in a GPS directly, and you still have extra ports for other external devices. In addition to that, the new ATmega 2560 has more IO pins so it can both read the PWM signal from your receiver and it has enough PWM outputs to control the ESCs directly without the need to do the PWM signal in software.
This controller even has a MicroUSB port right on the board, no need to attach an extra FTDI USB interface.
The motion sensing side features a new generation MEMS Gyro, a MPU6050 by InvenSense, which has the MEMS Gyro / Accelerometer sensor on a single chip. There’s also a 3-axis magnetometer and a barometer sensor with a resolution of 0.01 millibar – approximately a 10 cm height difference.
Interested in GPS functionality? Well this is one of the most cost effective ways to get started - simply add a 10Hz GPS module (coming soon) and you’re good to go!

Pretty good, has all the sensors and lots of ports to plug pretty much everything. Not recommend for a small quad, but perfect for 400 experimental multirotors. Had some problems with serial3, when all other ports are busy it drops the speed.
Can not believe the sale price!!!! Picked up a few to go with my new colors!
Great fc for people that want to get into gps and open source fc's. This board is all inclusive at a great price. Will except a wide range of accessories with great community support.
Very good board with ATmega 2560, full of features and expansion possibilities. Great!
Amazing features with so many interfaces. Was able to update firmware using only mission planner only. Had it running Megapirate in under 5 minutes. included cables are also a bonus. Do wish there was more documentation though
I have bought two of these now and absolutely love them! Both projects were hex copters. Gps is easy to attach, I recommend the NEO-6M GPS Module.
easy to flash with the Megapirate Flash Tool, works great in my Plane
I have this for almost 6 months and still haven't discovered all of the options. So far I've connected: bluetooth (must have), OLED (sold - no use for it), telemetry, GPS, minimOSD. USB port is well soldered - no problem with it.
Very good sensors - compass needs to be far away from ESC, barometer needs thick foam glued on. Default MW PIDs work with most X and frames. AltHold needs tuning, but that's another story.
All in all - great product, worth it's price. APM has nothing on it.
Excellent quality and price, full of features and expansion possibilities.
Very impressed by this board! I flashed it with MegapirateNG, connected a GPS receiver (uBlox Neo 6) and a Bluetooth module.
Flying goes very well! Also altitude hold & loiter are handled perfectly by this board. I recommend buying the Bluetooth module as it makes configuring a lot easier, with e.g. an Android phone or tablet.
If you're a beginner: this might be a bit too difficult to start with. Maybe the KK2.1.5 is a better choice in that case.
If you are experienced and you want to move on: this is definitely the board for you. Be aware that you need a bit of computer skills (compiling the Arduino code), but when you have everything up and running, this is an amazing piece of hardware!!!
