The Cube (Pixhawk 2.1) - Open Source flight controller with carrier board

Announcement: For ArduCopter users, it is necessary to run at least ArduCopter 3.6.11 and to use the parameters from SB2 (see below).

The Cube (Pixhawk 2.1) is the famous and successful latest version of the world famous controller developped in the PX4 open source project. It benefits from numerous improvements which ensure its position of the current most advanced electronics available.

More than a simple flight controller, Cube is a solution suitable for countless unmanned systems including multirotor drones, planes, helicopters, VTOL aircrafts, boats, cars, uboats, etc.


The most important improvements of this second Pixhawk version can be found in the CUBE.

Indeed, it embeds quality technological modules offering several features like a high performance IMU. The CUBE embeds a triple redundant IMU that is isolated, dampened and includes a heating system. Thanks to that, the Pixhawk 2 is a controller suitable for operations below freezing point.

In addition to that, the CUBE is connected to the carrier board with just a DF17 connector. This means it is a modular system.
