PX4 Autonomy Computer and Flight Controller in one! - VOXL Flight


VOXL Flight Enables the Smallest Autonomous Drones

VOXL Flight combines VOXL and Flight Core into one package. This is the first open computing platform designed specifically for drones (sUAS) to combine the power and sophistication of Snapdragon with the flexibility and ease of use of a PX4 flight controller in a single PCB.  VOXL Flight is 100% software compatible with VOXL and Flight Core, but in a single PCB to reduce cabling, cost and increase reliability.

VOXL Flight supports obstacle avoidance and GPS-denied (indoor) navigation fused with a PX4 flight controller on a single PCB. 

Ready to Use Drone Development Tools

You can purchase VOXL Flight in a ready to fly drone, m500, or in a ready to mount enclosure, Flight Deck.

VOXL Flight Contains the Most Popular Drone Developer Tools

The VOXL Flight advances the Snapdragon Flight and Qualcomm Flight Pro architectures to provide great support for:

  • PX4 Avoidance and Navigation
