Are you want to be an Electronic Geek in the future and want to build your own drone then this Flight controller is best for you. The flight controller uses the data gathered by the sensors to calculate the desired speed for each of the four motors. The flight controller sends this desired speed to the Electronic Speed Controllers (ESC’s), which translates this desired speed into a signal that the motors can understand. This flight controller

APM 2.8 Multicopter Flight Controller is an upgraded version of 2.5 and 2.6 with a Built-in Compass for FPV RC Drone. The sensors are exactly the same as the APM 2.6 flight controller. However, the module has the option to use the built-in compass an external compass via a jumper. This makes the APM 2.8 ideal for use with multi-copters and rovers.

The APM 2.8 Multicopter Flight Controller is a complete open source autopilot system. This is the best-selling technology that won the prestigious Outback Challenge UAV competition. It allows the user to turn any fixed, rotary-wing. In addition, it turns multirotor vehicles (even cars and boats) into a fully autonomous vehicle. meanwhile, it is capable of performing programmed GPS missions with waypoints.

    I have purchased this from ebay.in & after using it from 1 year I will say that it is trustworthy & very stable flight controller.

    Open source flight controller. Easy to use & set up.


  12. Sunjay Singh (verified owner)

    If you are making a quad or hexa, this is the controller for you, dont forget if your ESC have 5 volts on red wires, remove the JP1 it joins the power module and BEC circuits, if JP1 is in place and esc also powering 5v, you will fry the controller instantly, it comes with inbuilt compass as well! Happy flying

    Although I have yet to check the APM using actual motors and ESCs, the initial calibration results returned positive. I am pretty sure it will remain the same in practice too.
