AN177 - Kixrazor – Sparkfun’s 9DOF Razor with Bascom Basic Coded DCM (ala Mahoney/Premerlani style)

Kixrazor is a pretty cool Electronic Flight Information System as called by Natalius Kiedro its creator. Very nice write up is available at The hardware uses a GPS feeding into a Sparkfun 9DOF "Razor" board whose output is used by the AR7212 autopilot which finally sends telemetry (NEMA and AHRS) out to a 433Mhz Modem (UM96) for the ground station. AN177 can be downloaded at It includes a very readable interpretation and description of the "DCM" method of gryo drift stabilization and fully commented BASCOM code. Interestingly enough, BASCOM appears to support ATXMEGA128A1 according to MCS Electronics Help/Reference File for Version1.11.9.9
XmegaPilot may be programmed as an XmegaDuino OR BASCOM processor with a change in the bootloader.
