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

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.

Key features

  • CUBE modular design
  • dampened and isolated IMU
  • triple redundant IMU
  • Suitable for numerous platforms
  • CM precision GPS
  • Multiple GPS
  • Open source development



Here 2 GNSS receiver is the new version of the world famous Here GNSS first generation receiver. It is the perfect fit for the Cube (aka Pixhawk 2.1) by offering plenty of new possibilities. It was specifically designed and built to work with this world leading and most appreciated open source flight controller.

Indeed, it provides a precise positionning information by allowing multiple GNSS reception of the most popular and efficient current systems, including brand new ones (GPS, QZSS, GLONASS, BeiDou, Galileo, etc.). Thanks to that, you benefit from the maximum satellite reception at all dense with this dense covering.

Upgrades brought to the Here 2:

  • New processor allowing to perform updates and to have user defined features thanks to ChibiOS operating system and its open architecture;
  • Possibility to communicate via CAN or I2C thanks to the mechanical internal switch;
  • Complete IMU integrated having an accelerometer, a gyro and a compass;
  • Customize LEDs displays depending on the flight status;
  • Integrated barometer to increase accuracy of barometric measures of airtight frames.
