FlyMaple Quadcopter Controller Board

FlyMaple is a Quadcopter controller board, based on the Maple Project. The FlyMaple embeds a STM32F103RET6 (ARM Cortex-M3) as its main MCU. It integrates a 3-axis accelerometer, a 3-axis gyroscope, a 3-Axis compass, and a barometric pressure sensor. By using the 10 degrees of freedom, IMUs, and powerful 72MHz high-performance microcontroller, FlyMaple is powerful enough to handle complex algorithms and manage a robot motion system at the same time.

The design of FlyMaple is based on the maple, which is an Arduino style ARM processor. The Maple IDE will make Processing/Arduino programmers feel right at home. If you're familiar with Arduino then you can get started with the Maple IDE quite easily.

FlyMaple is aimed to run on the balancing robots, mobile platform, helicopters and quadcopters which require IMUs and high performance real time controllers. It has an amazing scalability, because it's compatible with the Arduino shields. FlyMaple extends 6 PWM channels and 8 channels for GPIO for controlling ESC/Servo and capturing RC receiver input.
