The AP Mega Micro is a complete open-source autopilot and flight controller system featuring all the same power and features as its bigger brother.
The new AP Micro is based on the AP Pilot 2.7 architecture with all the same great fixes to known issues of earlier variants, available elsewhere. It’s creatively redesigned into a much smaller form factor on the now popular 35mm form factor and yet retains the full functionality and ports from the original. The AP is based on the rapidly evolving and refined Ardupilot mega or “APM”, an open-source project from 3DR robotics. This amazing flight controller allows the user to turn any fixed wing, rotary wing, or multi-rotor vehicle (even boats and cars) into a fully autonomous vehicle, capable of performing a wide range of tasks even programmed GPS missions with waypoints and follow-me capability (with the optional GPS module).
Various user interfaces are available for programing, reviewing logs, and even some Apps for smartphones and tablets. The optional telemetry radio allows for two-way radio communication giving you full control and providing live data back to your computer or tablet. The list of what this flight controller is capable of has quickly been surpassed by what it cannot, with features, flight modes, and supported platforms. The APM project is supported by thousands of users pushing this open-source flight controller to be one of the best systems available.
The new AP MEGA Micro loses nothing from its bigger brother, but size and weight, allowing for smaller and lighter vehicles. The mini is just one more step in the APPilot’s evolution.
