Pixhawk 2.1

Pixhawk 2.1 is a small cube, with a 38.5mm square footprint, that does pretty much everything better than the original Pixhawk. Pixhawk2 is the latest iteration of Pixhawk, which is an independent open-hardware project. Pixhawk2 supports different kinds of airframes – multicopters, helicopters, quadplanes, planes, rovers and more! With Intel Edison compatibility, the power of it has gone up exponentially. An easy firmware update is all it takes to re-purpose your hardware into a different role. The vibration dampening is by far and away improved over the Pixhawk with the Vibration-damped IMU Board. https://aero-hawk.com/product/pixhawk2/ Pixhawk 2.1

Modular flight controller

Reduced integration complexity

Ample I/O for even the most complex airframes

All-in-one design with integrated FMU and IO processors

Vibration-damped IMU board

It comes 100% RTK GPS ready.

Multiple GPS capability is standard.

The Pixhawk2 comes ready for use with the Intel Edison if ordered Edison Ready
