GPS / GNSS with two integrated compass-sensors: GPS/Glonass receiver of the latest generation (MKGPS v4) with mounted GPS Shield and two integrated compass-sensors.

It uses the normal American GPS satellites, and it can in parallel receive the Russian GLONASS and European GALILEO in standard configuration. It is also compatible with the Chinese BeiDou and Japanese QZSS satellite systems.

This increase the number of satellites available for navigation, especially in areas with inadequate GPS coverage or signal shading (mountains, buildings, etc.).

For the suppression of external interference sources (such as video transmitters), a HF preamplifier and a SAW filter have been integrated to the receiver.

On the bottom side there is a mounting space for the optional external compass. The GPS shield increases the signal quality of the receiving satellites.

The board is tested and ready-to-use with the Flight-Ctrl V3.0.

Redundant connectivity:

  • two GPS-connections for two FlightCtrl
  • two independent compass sensors for a redundant Master/Slave setup
  • can be used with only one FlightCtrl
