SP140 open source?

I’m considering buying the SP140, but would like to be able to be more handson (not just to fly it).
Will the components/software be made open source (like the X4), or will it be a more closed system ?
Since it is a new released project, it would also increase chances for updates/corrections.
Could you share how many pre-orders have already been made ?

Yes it will be, but we don’t manufacture components like the ESC so some stuff is limited, but it will be the same as the X4. others had the same question here What's Coming Next - Batch 5 and OpenPPG Single Prop

Thanks for your fast reply !
Can you already share a high level block diagram
Battery charger / battery / ESC / motor (type, main specs, …)
with the interfaces.

Is the ESC based on a standard product of APD
Can the battery pack be replaced by another standard one, of is there a dedicated interface
Are you using a standard motor

Since I’m from Europe, I will (have to) try to be able to keep the system up and running as much as possible myself

thanks for your feedback, and all your effort !
