I opted to withdraw this proposal since I forked ArduPilot
I'm watching with interest Might be worth cross posting to the Ardupilot/hardware gitter channel.
It looks like Jerry Giant is willing to produce a small batch of boards.http://diydrones.com/profiles/blogs/aerflite-flight-controller-osd-new-years-eve-maiden#comments I will of course update you more about it, but looks like it is going to happen.@james_pattison and everyone else that has supported the project. Thanks for your support
That's great news!Jerry is the P9X guy I think, so has a commercial setup.
EDIT: The project is now forked from ArduPilot at https://github.com/Aerflite/aerflite.
