Be the First to Get your Hands on ModalAI® Flight Core®!

Sound the gong, blast the confetti, Flight Core®, our PX4 flight controller, is now available for pre-order! The demand for a US-made flight controller is growing, so we’ve been hustling (and drinking lots of coffee) to bring ours to market as quickly as possible. Bench testing ✔ Flight testing ✔ Datasheet

Flight Core pairs with the VOXL navigation and companion computer for GPS-denied navigation and obstacle avoidance. VOXL dev kits are available in our online store.

We’ve been ramping up new features to the VOXL platform like it’s a Tesla Model 3. Our goal is to create the #1 most accessible autonomous computing and communications platform for drones and robots. Check out the list of new features below.

Our VOXL-Flight development efforts are on the move. Look for it to be the industry’s first fully-integrated obstacle avoidance companion computer and flight controller on a single PCB (Say that 3 times fast). The mission of the VOXL-Flight is to support a fully redundant electronics stack, while minimizing connections, for the market’s most capable certifiable flight controller. We expect it to be available early 2020. Can’t wait for the VOXL-Flight to launch? You can begin your development now by purchasing the components separately.
