Which is the Best Auto pilot for beginners..

Hi...
Im new to autopilot.. usually i build RC planes(fixed wing) and fly mannually..Now im trying to integrate a good autopilot and fly autonomously by giving waypoints and wanna try many flight modes. Which board will be comfortable for beginners... I want some cheap stuff as i have a financial constrain.. and does the cloned APM works good as the original ones.Members please help me out..

    Go for a Pixhawk based system instead of APM.  Much better hardware, the APM is known to fail prematurely and isn't as powerful.

    The RCTimer Fixhawk is a good clone.

  • Hi All,

    I am currently in talks with TopXGun regarding the possibility of providing and supporting their products in the UK and Europe and would like you help and honest opinions, at present the user base is very small outside of their home country China, so obtaining helpful customer reviews and findings is very difficult, so I would be very grateful if any end users out there could provide me with this invaluable information either on this thread or PM me directly.

    Many Thanks Jason.

  • I'd say go for the Pixhawk.

  • Simplest and easiest that I've discovered is Bigaole autopilot for fixed-wings.

    It's does stabilize and RTL (return to launch)

    Bigaole 6G-AP Flight controller with GPS (RTH)
    Bigaole, high performance 3 axis gyro with 3 axis accelerometer with GPS and return to home function.
