Drone: Onboard Computer

While I haven’t yet nailed down which helicopter I’m using as a base, the onboard computer is all but finalized.  For now, let’s assume that I’ll be using the S031.  Give that, here is a description of the final product:

The s031 RC helicopter has an onboard 9.6 volt battery.  This will be used to power the Arduino, which supplies both 5v and 3.3v logic to the remaining parts.

Pins D11-D13 -> SD card shield (SPI interface)

Pins 0,1 -> GPS (Serial interface)

Pins A4, A5 -> Magnetometer/Accellerometer ( I2C interface )
