The GPS Mast improves the performance of a 3DR GPS with Compass. The mast elevates the GPS + Compass or external magnetometer module 3.4 inches (8.7 cm) above your vehicle, reducing potential magnetic interference. The GPS Mast includes long cables to connect to APM 2.6 or Pixhawk and folds to allow easy transportation of your vehicle. Mounting hardware attaches the mast to your 2013 or 2014 3DR Quad, Y6, or X8.
IRIS is an all-in-one autonomous aerial vehicle with a compact and durable design. Stylish and powerful, IRIS runs on the innovative Pixhawk autopilot system--the newest in advanced autopilot electronics from the PX4 open-hardware project. With wide-angled arms and a GoPro-compatible camera mount, IRIS is perfect for any aerial imaging application. Add a GoPro Hero 3 to capture breathtaking aerial video.
Pixhawk is an advanced autopilot system designed by the PX4 open-hardware project and manufactured by 3D Robotics. It features advanced processor and sensor technology from ST Microelectronics® and a NuttX real-time operating system, delivering incredible performance, flexibility, and reliability for controlling any autonomous vehicle.
The Pixhawk digital differential airspeed sensor has a very low offset, a high resolution and, best of all, does not suffer from the noise induced by long cables and offsets in the ratio-metric output on the APM 2.6 analog airspeed sensor.
This kit includes external LED and USB modules to connect to Pixhawk. Use the provided four-position DF13 cables and connect to the I2C splitter module to set up a bright, multicolor LED and convenient USB port for your vehicle.
Our new PPM encoder allows you to connect your PWM-only RC equipment to PPM-only autopilot systems, like Pixhawk. Smaller than our previous PPM, our encoder will enable you to reduce all your channels to a single wire, excluding ground and power wires. As a result, you’ll get faster processing and reduced points of error.
