Gluonpilot Version 2 autopilot released

The previous hardware iterations gave us the experience we needed to design this new best-in-class autopilot system. Some of the key features are:

  • Small! Slightly above 4 x 5cm
  • Integrated: All needed sensors (including the switched power supply) are on the main board
  • Easy to use: an on-board USB connector will make you feel very familiar
  • 2 voltage inputs for batteries
  • 1 current sensor input
  • Extendable: all pins are available on the extension board (I2C, SPI, GPS, …)
  • Rewritten OSD firmware with unique features: wind indicator, current navigation block name
  • Future proof: Your gluonpilot won’t be outdated after 1 or 2 years: our firmware and ground control station is still backwards compatible with gluonpilot 0.1 (2009!)

For techy lovers:

  • MPU-6000 based
  • High-Efficiency switched voltage regulator at 2.5Mhz which gives it us even better efficiency and a very small footprint
  • Top quality components for optimum performance: X7R capacitors & 1% resistors
  • Enough solder jumpers & in- & output ports to customize it to your needs
