DETAILS

This APM is the most reliable and affordable autopilot system available for drones today!

Product #: MK3DR05

The APM 2.6 Set, Side Entry - XT60 Connectors is a completely open-source autopilot system and winner of the prestigious 2012 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 no onboard compass, which is designed for vehicles (especially multicopters 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 2.6 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.
  • Arduino Compatible!
  • Can be ordered with top entry pins for attaching connectors vertically, or as side entry pins to slide your connectors in to either end horizontally
  • Includes 3-axis gyro, accelerometer and magnetometer, along with a high-performance barometer
  • Onboard 4 MegaByte Dataflash chip for automatic datalogging
  • Optional off-board GPS, uBlox LEA-6H module with Compass.
  • One of the first open source autopilot systems to use Invensense's 6 DoF Accelerometer/Gyro MPU-6000.
  • Barometric pressure sensor upgraded to MS5611-01BA03, from Measurement Specialties.
  • Atmel's ATMEGA2560 and ATMEGA32U-2 chips for processing and usb functions respectively.
  • APM 2.6 requires a GPS unit with an onboard compass for full autonomy.

    If you are using APM 2.6 with a GPS module that does not have a compass sensor, you must use a stand-alone external compass.
