Hello world,
i have just looked to the web side of Maxim. Only same versions of the max1168 are obsolete?
Is the max1168 also  running on the booz IMU?
Currently our HB-Quadcopter code is running on the board. This code runs also with  the tiny13 and a Sparkfun Razor IMU (68 Euro),,  but it is not Paparazzi.
If you want to construct the HB-Autopilot by hand you will need 2-3 days. The board has 0402 elements and is difficult to solder by hand.

Hello world

- I'm happy to see new activity on the list.
- I have not seen a hb_autopilot.h in conf/autopilot/boards - Does
paparazzi run on hb_autopilot ? if not, have you evaluated the efforts
to make it run ?
- I only have had a quick look at the tinyv3 page, but I see it's
using the max1168. It's a very good chip, but it has been obsoleted.

Hello Everybody,

I'd like to build my own HB-Autopilot
( Since I'm not going to solder BGAs
by myselft, I tried to get hold of prices for parts, pcbs and assembly. As
you may know, assembly of a single pcb is quite expensive due to the high
amount of non recurring costs (e.g. solder masks). So I ended up with appr.
1200€ in total including ~ 600€ non recurring costs for a single copy. Also
this looks ok for me, I'd like to ask if somebody out there would be
interested in an omnibus order? For ten pieces we could end up at ~660€ per
part or even less. Prices include 19% VAT, which may not be applicable in
your country. Please be aware that this device is likly to be subjected to
export restictions depending on the contry of destination (US-ITAR,
GERMAN-KrWaffKontrG and serveral others).

Best Regards,
Thomas Wuerfl
