MindRacer Hardware

The MindRacer series were created by AirMind. Please refer to: http://mindpx.net

Quick Summary

MindRacer is a fully stackable flight platform for miniature UAVs. Based on MindPX, MindRacer further scales down in formfactor while focused on providing modularity. MindRacer is a platform rather than a flight controller.

MindRacer implements the SEP(soldering-elimination-port) and WEP(wiring-elimination-protocol) concepts. Before SEP and WEP, soldering and wiring are always the major pain and efficiency killer during UAV manufacturing and tuning.
