VOXL Flight Deck - Mount and Fly Autonomously, Assembled Obstacle Avoidance Kit


Mount and Fly PX4 Drone Development for Obstacle Avoidance

The VOXL Flight Deck R2 is a fully assembled and flight ready drone development platform hosting a ModalAI VOXL drone and robotics companion computer paired with the ModalAI Flight Core PX4 flight controller.  It comes pre-configured with Tracking, Stereo and Hi-Res optical sensors, providing the easiest way to add US built* GPS-Denied Navigation and Obstacle Avoidance to a vehicle (the only thing easier is our m500 Development Drone).  The Flight Deck weighs in at only 91g (with LTE modem not pictured, without the USB cable).

Drone not included

Dimensions: 96 x 150 x 38 mm

Lead Times

Due to strong sales of VOXL Flight, there is a small delay in shipping Flight Deck with the single board VOXL Flight (VOXL-FLIGHT-DECK-KIT-R2-2). The 2-board solution, with VOXL and Flight Core (VOXL-FLIGHT-DECK-KIT-R1-2), ships within normal lead time of 1 week.

Both products have the same functionality.
