APM 2.8 Multicopter Flight Controller is upgraded version of 2.5 2.6 with Built-in Compass for FPV RC Drone Aircraft is the new APM 2.8 flight controller. The sensors are exactly the same as the APM 2.6 flight controller, however, this has the option to use the built-in compass, or an external compass via a jumper. This makes the APM 2.8 ideal for use with multi-copters and rovers.

The APM 2.8 Multicopter Flight Controller is a complete open source autopilot system and the bestselling technology that won the prestigious Outback Challenge UAV competition. It allows the user to turn any fixed, rotary wing or multirotor vehicle (even cars and boats) into a fully autonomous vehicle; capable of performing programmed GPS missions with waypoints.

This revision of the board has an optional onboard compass, which is designed for vehicles (especially multi-copters and rovers) where the compass should be placed as far from power and motor sources as possible to avoid magnetic interference. (On fixed wing aircraft it’s often easier to mount APM far enough away from the motors and ESCs to avoid magnetic interference, so this is not as critical, but APM 2.8 gives more flexibility in that positioning and is a good choice for them, too). This is designed to be used with the 3DR uBlox GPS with Compass so that the GPS/Compass unit can be mounted further from noise sources than APM itself.

APM 2.8 Multicopter Flight Controller requires a GPS unit for full autonomy. You can add additional extras to your AMP 2.8 board via the options above.


Using the built-in compass

To use the built-in compass simply connect the jumper as shown below.  If the compass jumper is removed then the APM board will use the external compass which is best for multirotor with a GPS/compass module mounted externally

    I am not sure this APM is original or copy. But it is reasonable.

    Although I have yet to check the APM using actual motors and ESCs, the initial calibration results returned positive. I am pretty sure it will remain the same in practice too. Overall a very good product!

    If you are making a quad or hexa, this is the controller for you, dont forget if your ESC have 5 volts on red wires, remove the JP1 it joins the power module and BEC circuits, if JP1 is in place and esc also powering 5v, you will fry the controller instantly, it comes with inbuilt compass as well! Happy flying
