Introducing the AUAV X2.1 Flight Controller

The AUAV X2.1 is all about lessons learned. The X2 was a very successful board but there was still room for improvement. Following the PixRacer project we had time to invest into making the X2 the high quality PixHawk replacement we intended it to be. Major changes include: updated IMU sensors, power supply has been redesigned, headers have been laid out more logically, remote USB connector, industry standard 30.5mm mounting points.

Questions and comments are welcome!

Good work on the remote USB connector, this was something I missed on the original X2 vs. standard pixhawk.

What is the main difference with Pixracer? I have a Pixracer and will be buying one more FC board from AUAV soon.

I see the different connectors, more AUX outputs, second MCU. Anything else.? The sensors seem to be the same, but maybe their connection/layout is different (better)?

When will it be available? We already passed middle of October and it is still out of stock.

+1 with Johnatan. all sold out? or production problems? i'm ready to give you my money.

We would love to sell them and the hardware is in our hands. Bootloader is finished. We are just waiting to core dev developers availability to complete the port of this board to PX4 and ArduPilot.

thx Phil for the update

Comment by Johnatan on October 16, 2016 at 11:51pm

It will be great if you could produce the case for it as Pixracer in the meantime.
