    Hi Pete.

    It's been nine months now and you're still getting me in trouble with the missus over spending a fortune on embedded systems, so I thought I'd return the favour. Have a look at this!


    It's a complete AHDR with 6 degrees of freedom and an onboard processor. Unbelievable; the only thing it doesn't have is centripetal compensation. Since the firmware is open source and it DOES have a spare UART, you could add a GPS and turn this thing into a complete inertial guidance system. I think the only reason Homeland security isn't asking awkward questions is it isn't fast or rugged enough for a missile controller :)

    You could still build a pretty funky UAV with it, though. I'm thinking quadcopter. Can you say "Hoverbot"? :)
