APM 2.6

$ 150.00 $ 25.00

The APM 2.6 was the culmination of the original line of APM autopilots.  It was--and continues to be--an excellent introductory autopilot capable of commanding all kinds of autonomous crafts, from multicopters to rovers to sailboats.

Note: APM 2.6 is compatible with APM:Copter 3.2 and earlier only. To use APM:Copter version 3.3 and later, please purchase a Pixhawk. APM:Plane and APM:Rover offer full support for APM 2.6 in all existing releases.

Notes:

  • APM 2.6 requires a GPS unit with an onboard compass or an external compass module for full autonomy. If you are using APM 2.6 with a GPS module that does not have a compass sensor, you must use a stand-alone external compass.
  • This unit is not sold with a power module or cables; those will need to be purchased separately.
