Flight Core - PX4 & ArduPilot Flight Controller (Board-only)


Flight Core - PX4 & ArduPilot Flight Controller Assembled in USA!

Note: the M0018-2 revision does not have the A71CH or BMI088, which were both fundamentally unused in the M0018-1.

The ModalAI Flight Core runs the PX4  or ArduPilot flight controllers, and is assembled in the USA. The Flight Core can be paired with VOXL® for obstacle avoidance and indoor or outdoor GPS-denied navigation. Flight Core can also be used independently as a standalone flight controller.

The VOXL paired with Flight Core is 100% software compatible with our upcoming, single-board VOXL Flight.
