Hi  Pixhawk Lovers)

After Intel cancelling edisons. Dronee Pilot might be interesting for you.


All-in-One ,Microhard telemetry module, Raspberry Pi Computer Module 3, Ublox GPS and Airspeed Sensor in one  super small package .  And all is only 45 Gram.


RPI CM3 module has fantastic power and super small size .  It has also onboard 4GB eMMC storage. Also to make development easier Dronee Pilot has RPI - UART, I2C, USB  GPIO pins and CSI Cam slot.

General Hardware Specifications:

  • Integrated GNSS receiver UBlox NEO M8N

  • Integrated Microhard telemetry module (configurable 100mW-1W)

  • Raspberry Pi Computer module 3 with 1.2GHZ  processor ,1Gbyte RAM, and 4Gbytes eMMC flash

  • microSD card slot

  • RPI GPIO: UART,I2C,USB and CSI Cam port

  • FMU connector:  4 x Main PWM, 4x Aux PWM, CAN , UART , Power port

  • FMU debug /IO Debug port

  • Compact board size of 90 x 43 mm

  • Airspeed Senosor

  • Weight 45 gram

  • Hi Marc,

    I am duty travel. So don't have a good connection. I will post more details when I am back. Basically;

    It is based on OpenGL layer running on a different layer than video source (layer 999 ex. So it is highly dependent on BCM chipset features) any video source (v4l, pivideo ) which use layer 0 should work with my setup. 

    PS: it is optimized for analog video out. (720x480)



  • Hi Marc Dornan ,  we are currently working on HD video transmitting via low cost Wi-Fi. We will put Telemetry data over the video , it is much easiear working with digital transmition. I will post about it in upcoming month

  • @Tomi -- that link to the Greek guy who did the Pi OSD seems to be an abandoned project that is not Open Source. Are you using this currently?
  • Hi Daniel Agar after you and many other people's requests we have changed airspeed sensor to MS5525, and 8 channel main PWM output we added on board)

  • i think there is better choices than rpi 

    why not putting something really powerful when you can do 
    and weight is not really big deal in comparison of the hardware specs
    also if you can make HD FPV link it is going to be really good 
    and COFDM is the best modulation i think 

  • @Aytek -- for me and many others this has simply been a missing link. Can we have some details or is there a project page? Would this run on a BeagleBone Blue, for instance? I presume it was designed around a Navio FC. Will it only support Pi Cam? (which I guess is fine). 

  • Yes indeed. Please tell us more!
  • @Aytek Canak   link?

  • I have developed a full graphical color OSD for PI using C++ (Based on MininOSD). It is very plug&play and support mavlink via TCP/IP or serial communication.

  •  Marc Dornan i have found how to integrate OSD to raspberry pi . still not plug and play but it works .
