In which case, please accept my apologies.I guess I quoted the wrong post when I replied. Let me try again and maybe my original response will make more sense:
So in response to that specific post, I had just wanted to point out that there isn't a 'problem' with the black cube. The 'problem' is with the Solo's ESCs. The stock cube operates at 3.3v like any other flight controller would.
I'm not saying anyone should or should not add level shifters, flux capacitors, or a garbage disposal to a carrier board... just there isn't a 'problem' with the stock cube.
With all that being said, I had contacted ProfiCNC / Hex last week about buying their standard carrier boards a la carte, and the replies I received were:
"The Standard carrier board is not for sale, you can buy the Intel carrier board from our distributors."
"The carrier board has been sold out in US. You can order the Intel Carrier Board from Spanish distributor Stockrc. Thank you!
Intel Edison Carrier Board including PSM without the cube and Edison Chip
Should you have any further questions, do not hesitate to contact us."
Unfortunately, at that price, it would be cheaper to buy another complete Pixhawk flight controller than to try and reuse our stock Solo 2.0 cubes.
Maybe if enough of us asked (and if the price was reasonable), ProfiCNC / Hex would make another run of their standard carrier boards (non-Edison since we already have the IMX-6s).
I would also be interested in several simplified carrier boards if you guys decide to make them. For me, the smaller the footprint and lighter it is the better.
Whoa up there big fella, I’m not doing anything of the sort and frankly have no idea what has set you off mate - there’s nothing in my post that warrants this kind of response.Do you just enjoy pissing on people's parades or something? I'm not asking you to do the layout or testing work so I fail to see why you insist on publicly pooh-poohing the idea.
I guess I need to start repeating to myself (possibly out loud) "text conveys emotion poorly. The way you read it probably isn't the way they wrote it". Sigh.Whoa up there big fella, I’m not doing anything of the sort and frankly have no idea what has set you off mate - there’s nothing in my post that warrants this kind of response.
I pointed out that there are processes one would need to go though to modify the board, which people sometimes dont fully consider (design, prototype, test and manufacture etc) Anyone that has been through these processes knows the overhead (others may not)
Suggest you re-read my posts, I have not disagreed with you at any point. I was reminded by kennamer where the issue lies, so publicly face palmed myself.
All good mate, appreciate the apologyI guess I need to start repeating to myself (possibly out loud) "text conveys emotion poorly. The way you read it probably isn't the way they wrote it". Sigh.
I owe you an apology as well. I'm gonna go sit in the corner and think about what I've done.
I think we could all do with a drink.... ah who am I kidding... that didn't require thinking at all....All good mate, appreciate the apology
Indeed text can often convey the incorrect emotion, and clearly has done in this case. It is something I consider each time I post on any forum, may have missed the mark on this one, as I do honestly think it’s a good idea.
That was the wrong photo, so removed it - these should provide a better idea of what is 'hopefully' ready at the factory. For now, just bare boards, but i'll add some more pics later that have all the components included.I can't tell by the photo, but this will allow the use of the stock 2.0 cube in a DIY multirotor?
