APM 2.0 back in production!


If you follow the 3D Robotics Twitter feed, you'll have seen that APM 2 production is underway again! The hard-to-get pressure sensors arrived, and shipments will begin again next week. At this point, the supply chain shortages should be over, so we expect APM 2 to be continually in stock once all the pre-orders are filled in a week or two. Yay!

Remember, APM 2 is now available with an external GPS option or with the headers unsoldered, if you want to use different ones than the defaults.

(For the production gurus out there, be reassured that there is a layer of antistatic foam between each of those in-progress APM stacks in the picture)

  • I took the plunge and decided to give it a try.  32-bit will have to wait.

  • I think a lot of people might be waiting for a 32-bit version to come out.  It's kind of hard in this day and age to invest in 8-bit technology.

    Can you give more information about when that might happen?

  • When will the APM 2 Ship out....for

    Order date: 03/25/2012

    That is a beautiful looking stack of APMs!!!

  • Hi Chris Anderson, 
    a bit offtopic here but may i ask whats the problem with the Xbee Telemetry kit 
    i always get an error with it not being in stock, is there also a backlog of orders for it? like what happened with apm2

    Whoops! Our apologies, but although this product is listed as in stock, there is actually one component (Xbee paired modules for kit (RPSMA connector + wire antenna modules!)) that we don't have in hand. Rather than ship an incomplete product, please try in a few days. We usually restock quickly.


  • I had bought one. Nice AP. I Like it.

  • As soon as its in stock id say people like me with great patience(and no money now) will flood in orders and cause a backlog.There are a lot more members now.

    I have been waiting months for this.I actually went on to the site the day it was announced with intentions of finding the cheapest supplier shipping-wise and taking the plunge and buying one.Then that purple beauty flashed up on my screen.


    Yes the wait has killed me,thinking and daydreaming of one.If i fried the thing when i got it i think id just curl up and cry!

    Andreas: That's not quite right. If you order today, I would expect a delay of no more than two weeks before ship, and we expect that to go to zero within a month.

    Great to hear the supply chain is sorted and the boards will be in regular stock at long last :)

  • That's clear enough! Thank you :)
