Openpilot Mini CC3D Flight Control Board
This is the new Mini CC3D flight controller. It is about half the size of the regular CC3D but has the same functionality. The Mini CC3D board is an all-in-one stabilization hardware flight controller, which runs the OpenPilot firmware. It can fly any airframe from fixed wing to an octocopter and is configured and monitored using the powerful and user friendly OpenPilot Ground Control Station (GCS) software.
Using the powerful STM32 32-bit micro-controller gives you crisp handling characteristics when flying your flying tricopter, quad, hex, octocopter, and even fixed wing planes. The tiny size allows you to fit this on even the smallest frames.
Don’t be fooled by the size. Mini CC3D provides comparable functionality to other high-end flight controllers at a small fraction of the cost.

I mounted this little board in a crusader 130 frame with some 1306 3500kv motors and 3035 x3 props. After downloading librepilot, updating the firmware and configuring my radio/quad, I took it for a spin with the default settings. It flew surprisingly great! The only downside so far is that the boot pins are not exposed in the board, meaning no flashing with betaflight unless you have a STM link. Still a great board for small copters or even helis.Plugged and supplied it and rhino update was done in a few moments. great product, i like librepilot and its options.
i run this one on a race quad, and the settings can be adjusted by fine steps. there are a lot options with this flight controller and a wide community with good support. for basic settings there are a lot of youtube vids too. will buy it again for next multirotor.ordered this one for fixed wing- 4 flap wing- to have some differet stabilisation options during thermal flights- offeres 6 setups that you can change via TX. very very good hardware- and you need some time to work with it as it offers lots of functions, nothing to be compared with a 3 axis flight stabilisationNothing I can do with this board. Librepilot will not update. It downloads and then times out at the bootloader stage. This tells me that the board does not have a bootloader. In addition to that there are no boot pads like on the cc3d. That means there is no way for me to load a bootloader.If you directly hookup a satelite receiver to the main or flexi port (e.g. Spektrum SPM9645 <4g) you end up with a receiver flight controller solution that
weighs 8g in total.
Since the SPM9645 runs on 3.3V you need to add a 3.3V regulator (e.g. AMS1117) - the CC3D runs on 5V.
The only drawback is - if you wan to have
satelite receiver GPS OSD current measuring module - there aren't enough connections.
If you want/need all of the above go with the CC3D revolution instead.surprised at the size very small very stable will be using this board for more projects only thing make sure your using a cord that does more then charge a phone or board will not connect to computer love this controller will be getting moreI could not get serial connection via Openpilot GCS to this board, tried different firmwares, bootloaders and GCS but no serial connection. Then I flashed cleanflight for CC3D and it works :) I see no reason at all to buy the twice as expensive NANO N32 board, that one doesn't even have onboard FTDI (USB) which I find very usefullFantastic capability at an amazing price. The Openpilot GCS makes it easy to set up and optimize for most options. The CC3D Atom might be a better choice to drive servos on flybarless helicopter.
