What is the PXFmini?

The PXFmini is a low cost and open autopilot daughterboard for the Raspberry Pi that allows you to create a ready-to-fly autopilot with support for Dronecode’s APM flight stack.

The daughter-board has been designed specially for the Raspberry Pi Zero but it is also compatible with other models from the Raspberry Pi family.

A tiny yet powerful design

The PXFmini daughter-board weighs only 15 grams and embeds all the power electronics necessary to comply with most of the existing components for drones through its I2C and UART port. It has 8PWM servo output channels and a PPMSUM input.

A daughter-board for sensing

PXFmini includes 3 axes gravity sensor, 3 axes gyroscope, 3 axes digital compass, pressure sensor, temperature sensor and an ADC.

An improved experience

The new JST GH connectors (adopted by the Dronecode Foundation) provide an amazing new experience.

*Erle-Copter requires the Gimbal and the Legs to take professional images.

An open design

All the schematics are open for you to hack around.

Flight stacks

We work side by side with amazing open source communities to provide support for the de facto standard platforms for drones: the popular APM and PX4 autopilots.
