Welcome to Mobiflight !

There is no existing list of Mega Clones that are compatible....
But myself i use at the moment 3 Different manifacture Clones.... summary 20 Arduino Megas.... ALL Working.

We also get no feedback until now that some clones not work. ( And 90% of users work with clones )

But NOTE: Some Clones use a different PID identification....
If your clone realy not run then please report here in forum... Then Sebastian will ADD this PID in the next version so Mobiflight autodetect it.
(Not shure but i think you can manualy upload the firmware with missing PID, too.... Just more work but it should be possible until Sebastian add the PID. )
Good Luck !

Thank you so much! I think that answered all my questions. I will buy this one and check if it works, if not I will just ask for Sebastion to add the PID in the next version.

Ok.....
I recommend to buy only ONE Board first ( I know shipping must be paid multiple times so...) But then you can test it before you buy more boards !
Good Luck !
