autopilot (5)

Because the DIY community asked for it. Here’s the new mRo Pixracer Pro with tons of functionalities.

4 years after the original mRo Pixracer was designed and proven mRobotics recognized the need to bring the design to the forefront of open source flight controllers.

With the mRo Pixracer Pro mRobotics maintained everything that the community loved about the original mRo Pixracer and improved every deficiency that was known. The resulting fight controller is destined to become the new goto flight controller for developers and a rock solid foundation for commercial and industrial systems.

mRo Control Zero F7 a High-End Nano Autopilot...

The smallest and most powerful autopilot in the world of its kind created for a high-end unmanned vehicle builders!

mRo Control Zero, at its core, is a universal development board and is fully compatible with Ardupilot and soon PX4.

We have designed the mRo Control Zero in such a way so that it is highly customizable and adapts to industrial needs that are required, our new autopilot includes all libraries and examples that allow initializing and accessing all the sensors and functions of the board directly through our reference code and another very important thing, the manufacturing process is completely different from the conventional one which makes it much safer and more efficient.

Main Features:

- Main Processor STM32F777

- Crypto / Hash Processor

- Bosch BMI088

- High-perfomance IMU

- Internal Vibration Dampening

- Electromagnetic Shielding

- Corrosion Protection

- Two Ease Main Connectors

- Weight: .19 oz. (5 g)

- Width: .79” in (20mm)

- Lenght: 1.26” in (32mm)

Landing with strong wind using mRo x2.1-777

During some tests that we carried out autonomously of the mRo navigation systems, while we flew, the wind began to blow very hard and we decided to suspend the mission and land manually because the wind was increasing more and more and the gusts were erratic and unexpected.

To end the day, during the final approach the pilot made some low passes to be able to take some pictures of the plane from very close. Once the photos we achieved and we saw the circumstances complicated by the wind and the difficult landing, as fun we challenge the pilot to land with aim.

Due to the strong wind we couldn't land at the first attempt, so we had to abort the landing on several occasions repeating the same flight pattern.

At some moments during the final approach phase, we switch to “Stabilized” flight mode to check the safety that the mRo autopilot (mRo x2.1-777) brings while corrects the plane banking very quickly.

The video quality is not at all the best, because vibrations are shown on the camera and this is because it is mounted on a pan/tilt system.

Best regards

This is how you can learn at a glance the technical characteristics of the mRobotics family of autopilots and decide which device best suits your projects.

The mRo autopilots are designed and manufactured to create the wide variety of platforms that the industry requires in different ways. They are designed to provide reliability for the quality of the components used and manufacturing process, versatility in their physical and logical interfaces and in some cases to offer logical security by encrypting the information processed by the autopilot itself.

You can build custom cables yourself or with mRo help to optimize weight and space. It can easily adapt them to carrier boards to interconnect other devices in one piece.
