mRo Pixracer R15
Background/History of the Product:
PixRacer has all the capabilities of the original Pixhawk (including version 2) and even more! It is optimized in size and has just about the right amount of inputs/outputs that allow you to switch from a full-enriched autopilot stack system (with auto landing and full navigation) to a high-performance racing platform.
R15 has an updated accelerometer/gyro, magnetometer, and is ROHS (Lead Free). It also includes an ESP8266 for easy WiFi updates and comes with the latest Ardupilot ESP8266 firmware developed by Andrew Tridge. This new firmware has a nice web interface, MavLink2 support, and an easier way to do future updates via the web interface.
