After a long period of waiting, we are ready to introduce to you: gluonpilot 2!

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  • Future proof: Your gluonpilot won't be outdated after 1 or 2 years: our firmware and ground control station is still backwards compatible with gluonpilot 0.1 (2009!)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

The new hardware will be available by the end of this month (October). The first batch is almost completely sold out, so we encourage you to pre-order!
