CUAV Pixhack V5+ AutoPilot® is an advanced autopilot designed and made in CUAV. The board of the pixhack v5+ is based on the FMUv5 open hardware design, the external interface uses the Dronecode standard pinouts, and the modular design allows the user to design its backplane. It is fully compatible with PX4 and ArduPilot firmware. Mainly used for academic and business development.
Detachable Core Design
The Pixhack V5+ Autopilot still adopts a modular design, which is convenient for user integration.The core part of the flight control is integrated on the V5 core. The lower plate is detachable and serves only as an external interface carrier, giving consumers a customized space. Users can design their own lower plate according to their own needs.
New Open Source Hardware Design
Pixhack V5 AutoPilot is a new high-performance flight control system based on FMU V5 open source hardware. FMU v5 open source hardware features more advanced processors than FMU V3, larger flash and RAM, and more stable and reliable sensors.
Built-in Patented Damping System
The sensor and the main board of the Pixhack V5+ flight controller are seperated and designed with a built-in high-performance shock absorption system to adapt to various severe enviroments, and the applicability is stronger.
Multi-sensor Redundancy Combination
CUAV Pixhavk V5+ autopilot comes with built-in 5 sets of sensors, the flight controller monitors the multi-channel sensor data in real time, and performs redundant switching immediately in the event of a fault, improving flight safety and stability.
In terms of hardware configuration, Pixhack V5+ autopilot flight controller abandoned the original STM32F427 processor of the px4 family and selected a more advanced STM32F765 processor with a clock speed of 216MHZ and 2MB FLASH/512K RAM, higher frequency and larger RAM.The clock speed is higher, the RAM is larger,the speed will be greatly improved.
