RobotShop announced the acquisition of the technology behind Flying Einstein LLC, a manufacturer based in Florida which designs and produces flight controllers for UAVs and drones. The first product, released today on pre-order, is the Lynxmotion Quadrino Nano Drone/UAV Flight Controller (with GPS).
Ever since the new Lynxmotion UAV subdivision was created, we noticed that an easy to use, low-priced MultiWii-based flight controller was lacking on the market. The Quadrino Nano is an evolution of the MultiWii open-source project, initially started by Alexandre Dubus. The Lynxmotion Quadrino Nano board is one of the smallest, most full-featured MultiWii-compatible boards available, and includes a variety of sensors, GPS, case with dampers and much more. It is intended to be used with drones and UAVs such as quadcopters, hexacopters, planes and more. This latest version is 60% smaller than previous versions of the Quadrino, is more powerful and includes more features. It even costs less!
Unlike most other MultiWii based boards, the Quadrino Nano has an easy to use interface to help you get your UAV operational quickly, without issues such as text-based coding or configuration within the Arduino programming environment. With the addition of the Quadrino Nano to the Lynxmotion UAV product lineup, we will be able to provide a sturdy platform in terms of hardware and software to anyone looking to jump in the UAV world. Built-in sensors as well as GPS give the user full options available via the MultiWii software, and also allows for custom modification of the code and integration of additional features and products that weren’t possible before.
