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
