So, go figure.  Scrapping the Arduino Pilots and replacing with this unit.

POST SCRIPT

My order turned up and Hobbyking dropped the price of the module by $15 odd so I ordered another two (turns out they left a short track to ground off one of the SMD chips, can be fixed with fine soldering iron and electron microscope!).

The board is about twice the size of a Razor 9DOF AHRS.

Tiny but packed with 10DOF and the grunt you need for a full autopilot.
