BeagleBone Blue, What is it?

Well BeagleBones are similiar to Raspberry Pis and the other single board computers. Basically a Linux computer on a circuit board the size of a credit card, +/-. They have many possible uses in FPV and sUAVs. Recently picked up one for a project and it looks good. It is similiar to a BeagleBone Black, but has much, if not all, of the sensors required to be used as an autopilot, specifically Ardupilot.

So I decided to design and print one.
