The new Flight-Ctrl V3.0 integrates the Navi-Ctrl
The new Flight-Ctrl V3.0 integrates now the Navi-Control board: This is the new autopilot for MikroKopter - precise piloting with 32-bit navigation control combined in one single board.
Proven technology has been integrated into a circuit board, equipped with new features and designed to be extensible for future requirements.
The Flight-Ctrl V3.0 has been improved for camera integration: In conjunction with our camera control (CAMCtrl) functions such as zoom or recording can be controlled. At the same time you get the MikroKopter telemetry feedback about the status of the camera.
With an optional Hot-shoe adapter the exact GPS triggering position will be stored in a separate data file on the integrated SD card.
To use a redundant system (ie 2 autopilot to increase security), a completely new communication interface (CAN bus) has been integrated. The user receives system information from both systems via telemetry.
The implementation of the CAN bus system opens up new possibilities for the future. Additional inputs and outputs, as well as a free UART interface are also integrated for future use. It will be activated via a software update.
A Redundant data bus (I2C & UART) for controlling the brushless motors, is already implemented in the hardware greatly improving the UAV's security and reliability.
Source code, libraries, protocols, and a special 'compile' license are available for developers. For example, for integration or connection of additional sensors or hardware (Raspberry Pi, RTK applications, collision detection / avoidance, etc.).
Waypoint-planning and telemetry output is possible by a PC program, as well as the Android app MK tablet tool (MK-TT). For these function, a wireless data interface can be connected (Like RangeExtender). Telemetry and voice output via a HoTT or Jeti Transmitter keeps you informed about the actual state of your MikroKopter (altitude, distance, voltage, speed, etc.).
Of course, standard functions such as Position Hold, Coming Home and FailSafe functions are supported.
The electronics is equipped with a wide range of high quality sensors (gyroscopes, accelerometers, barometric pressure sensor). The autopilot can be used up to an altitude of 5000m ASL.
The built-in Flight recorder saves all important operating data onto the built-in micro-SD card. This data can be analyzed by a special tool. The flight path can be shown on Google Earth.
The servo outputs (for example, to connect a camera gimbal) are located on a small adapter board (TinyServo adapter). This can be mounted on an easily accessible position. An optional servo adapter with its own voltage regulator is available, for example to control more powerful servos.
The following navigation features are possible:
The MikroKopter system is distinguished by its reliability, versatility, scalability, robustness and high technology with endless possibilities that make of it the perfect choice for professionals.
