Ardupilot power supply

Hi Guys,


Can the Ardupilot be powered from both a 5V supply or a 6 Volt supply?

If so, how are you regulating the power into the ATMega328?

From my understanding it can't take more than 5.5 Volts.


Does anyone have a circuit diagram?


Thanks in advance!

    Fortunately, we've covered all this in the manual. (Simple answer: it can take 6-15v)

    PCB/circuit files are also in the manual here
