Sneak peak at the new AttoPilot v2.0 line up

Here is a sneak peak at the the new AttoPilot v2.0

AttoPilot v2.0 will be replacing v1.8 & v1.9 and be available in 4 flavors.

AttoPilot 6DOF IMU

AttoPilot v2.0 Thermopile

AttoPilot RTL
(Same as above...)

AttoPilot PPK

Pricing is still being confirmed, you can expect price drops across the complete range starting at around $250 for the PPK.

RTL will be cheaper than the v2.0 waypoint unit.

IMU system is looking at coming down significantly also.

Documentation & specifications should be ready within the week, once everything has been confirmed and stock has arrived the AttoPilot International website will be updated with all the new info.

Cant wait to try the RTL in my Multiplex Fox ;)

Thanks, heaps more info will be out in the next week, this might be the smallest autopilot available?? :)

Yep, Looks like a square inch!! but can't call it AP with RTL only function available for others ( with export restrictions ). ;), what does PPK stand for? Any thing to do with Walther ?

Hehe nah, nothing to do with firearms ;)
RTL is mainly for the aerial photography and FPV guys.

Nice to see price droping... :-)

Yeah I am happy to see the price coming down too! what is the PPK version? Is it the same as RTL version but only uses GPS? so will need a very stable airframe as no thermopiles?
Comment by Max on June 21, 2010 at 12:02am
Yes, its always good to see prices come down hehe :) They always seem to be going up these days...
Alex, almost right, the PPK will be like a normal AttoPilot but without thermopiles, stable airframes only.
Although I dont have the final details or specs so I may be a little off.

PPK is a turn-rate wing leveller autopilot similar to the Unav PicoPilot, but with MANY additional features (including very reasonable price of $250). Sensors include yaw gyro, *NEW* absolute pressure sensor with noise that stays under +/- 0.5 meter, and the Locosys LS20031 GPS. It has SD card logging of .kml files for easy viewing of flight path on your PC. It allows various altitudes throughout a flight plan (3-D waypoints that Icebear keeps asking for). It would be fair to state that it is a very small autopilot, contending to be one of the very smallest on the market

This all sounds very cool.

Hi Adrian, I'm sure you will get to test one out shortly ;)
