AUAV is proud to announce our latest high quality PixHawk derivative - The XRacer V1. This project was developed in cooperation with Lorenz Meier, David Sidrane, Leonard Hall and many others. This board combines the latest IMU offerings from InvenSense and a large number of capabilities in a micro 36mmx36mm form factor.


Below are some pictures to peak your interest.


XRacer V1 specifications:

  • MCU - STM32F427VIT6 rev.3
  • FRAM - FM25V02-G
  • Ultra low noise LDOs for sensors and FMU
  • Sensors used - MPU9250, HMC5983 ( optional ), ICM20608 ( optional ), baro MS5611
  • Connectors - GPS+I2C, RC-IN, PPM-IN, RSSI, SBus-IN, Spektrum-IN, USART3 ( TxD, RxD, CTS, RTS ), USART2 ( TxD, RxD, CTS, RTS ), FRSky-IN, FRSky-OUT, CAN, USART8 ( TxD, RxD ), ESP8266 ( full set ),      SERVO1-SERVO6, USART7 ( TxD, RxD ), JTAG ( SWDIO, SWCLK ), POWER-BRICK ( VDD, Voltage, Current, GND ), BUZZER-LED_BUTTON
  • MicroSD card reader
  • Micro USB
  • ESP8266 802.11bgn ( optional )
  • Dimensions - 36 x 36mm with 30.5 x 30.5mm hole grid with 3.2mm holes
  • Molex Clik-Mate ( JST GH series ) connectors for easy peripheral connect.
  • Full set of ready made cables for almost any peripheral module.
  • Power supply - 5-5.5VDC from USB or PowerBrick connector. Soon the  ACSP4 ( 36 x 36mm power distribution, current, voltage sensor with 5V/2.5A ultra low noise buck and 12V/2A ultra low noise buck ) companion will be announced.


The price and availability will be announced within a few weeks.


Thank you again for your support.

    Great Produkt!

    But why should it only be used in quads?

    I think it is a severe limitation not to provide more outputs to control gimbals cameras and other stuff in copters with more than 4 props.

    Anyway, looking forward to it!

  • I'd like to know the support for ESP8266 802.11bgn:)

  • I like the idea of CAN, but when are we going to see mass produced, reasonably priced CAN ESCs in a wide range of sizes to compete with the existing ESCs?

  • In our opinion, PWM is the old way. This board will primarily be on Quads, so even 6 is overkill. The future is CAN which this board supports. Anything we can do to help the transition along, the better.

    Why only 6 pwm output ?

    @Nick Arsov ,

    this design remember me my VR uBrain ;) It's nice that after 1 year deicde to join me in mono cpu design ;)

    looks very nice!

    It will need a small tweak to the nsh startup script for ArduPilot due to the different sensor mix, but that should be very easy.

  • The production boards will likely change to the JST GH Series Connector to coincide with the shift in standards within DroneCode.

  • Awesome work!

    Same form-factor as a Naze32 & Clickmate connectors too... You're spoiling us.  :)

  • + some more pictures....
