This Optical Flow Sensor V1.0  for APM2.5 APM 2.6 APM 2.8. Flight Controller detects horizontal movement. Please open the lens before use and remove the protective film. The sensor only works in well-lit environments. A fixed-focus lens is used so it cannot focus on objects closer than 30cm (1 foot). Rotating the sensor will confuse the sensor. The optical flow sensor does not interfere with the MPU6000. It is used in a variety of applications like Vehicles & Remote Control Toys, Upgrade Parts/Accessories like Mobile Detection Level, Remote Control Peripherals/Devices.
