VOXL® Flight  Enables Smaller, Smarter, and Safer 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.

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

VOXL 2 is built on the Qualcomm QRB5165 chipset and offers 4 times the computing power of VOXL! Check out the latest at: https://modalai.com/voxl-2

Note: VOXL SDK 1.2 is expected to be the last software release for this product.

Ready to Use Drone Development Tools

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