While we revise the production boards for ArduPilot and Blimpduino is being tweaked by the beta testers, work continues on ArduPilot Pro, the dual-core autopilot with built-in IR stabilization. ArduPilot Pro is also our development platform for future versions of the code and because it uses DIP version of the Atmega168 CPU it can be upgraded to the Atmega328 if you want more memory.
The latest board, shown above, updates the previous board in a few ways,. We took the GPS module off the board to give you more flexibility over which GPS use and where it is. Instead, we use a EM406 connector, which you can either use for a 5v 1Hz EM406
or use our soon-to-come daughterboard (which also uses the EM406 connector) for 3.3v 5Hz modules.
As before, you need to buy a FMA IR sensor modules (here
) or build ours
You can buy the board here
The Eagle files are here: Schematic
Here are the components you'll need:
- (R1,R4, R13) 2x 10kOhms P10.0KCCT-ND
- (R2, R3, R5, R6, R8, R9-12) 10x 1Kohms P1.00KCCT-ND
- (Trim pot, not marked on board but the three holes in a triangle next the "pot" lable): Trimpot 10k
