APM 2.6 + Accessories Package
Â Latest version 2.6APM with covered GPS.
The APM 2.6 is a complete open source autopilot system and the bestselling technology that won 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. Available with top or side connectors.
This is the full-featured multicopter UAV controller that won the Sparkfun 2013 Autonomous Vehicle Competition
(dominating with the top five spots). A team of developers from around the globe are constantly improving and
refining the performance and capabilities of APM:Copter.
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 (see option below), so that the GPS/Compass unit can be mounted further from noise sources than APM itself.
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.
