Matek FCHUB-W – PDB for fixed wing

Matek announced the newest product of their PDB line – FCHUB-W. This PDB is designed for fixed wings (hence the letter “W” in the naming of the PDB). It is connected to the Matek Flight Controller by means of the flat ribbon cable that transfers all the needed signals to the PDB. There are 4 servo powered outputs that can be broken into servo headers. This simplyfies the wiring greatly. PDB also has current sensor, 5V, 10V and even 3.3V BEC’s, RX and TX connections (UART5) for GPS or other peripherals.

Well, it is not exactly multirotor stuff, but still interesting product. The first PDB for planes ever. As long as I know. 

This is only an announcement of the upcomming product. More info will be available later.

Update 2018-02-08: More specifications and photos are available.
