UDB5 - PIC UAV Development Board

The UDB5 UAV Development Board (UAV Development Board version 5) comes populated with a dsPIC33FJ256 CPU, and the impressive MPU-6000, a MEMS 3-axis gyroscope and 3-axis accelerometer. The on-board Invensense gyro even has enough vibration tolerance to be used in RC heli applications.
By itself, the board can be used to develop a three axis IMU controller. By addition of an EM406 or D2523T GPS receiver, it can be used to develop a UAV controller for an RC car, plane, helicopter, or boat. It comes with self-testing firmware that can serve as a starting point for you to develop your own control and navigation firmware. There is even fully functional, open source autopilot firmware available.
The UDB5 UAV Development Board has a few changes with the MMA7361 three axis accelerometer, the dual axis IDG500 gyro, and the single axis ISZ500 gyro removed, these are now moved to the MPU-6000. The PCB form factor hasn't changed. If you like, you can add a reset button and / or a 0.2F super cap.
Note: For programming, we recommend the PICkit3, GPS module and pin headers are not included.
