This flight controller 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 multirotor vehicle (even boats and cars) into a fully autonomous vehicle, capable of performing a wide range of tasks even programmed GPS missions with waypoints with the optional GPS Module. It is a full autopilot capable of autonomous stabilization, way-point based navigation and support for two way telemetry with radio telemetry modules. It Supports 8 RC channels with 4 serial ports.
Various user interfaces are available for programming, reviewing logs, even some Apps for smartphones and tablets. The optional telemetry radio allows for two-way radio communication giving you full control and provides 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 flagship Pixhawk module will be accompanied by new peripheral options, including a digital airspeed sensor, support for an external multi-colour LED indicator and an external magnetometer. All peripherals are automatically detected and configured.
