PX4 Flight Management Unit v1.7

The PX4 Flight Management Unit is a high-performance autopilot targeted towards high-end research, amateur and industry needs. It's suitable for fixed wing, multi rotors, helicopters, cars, boats and any other robotic platform that can move. The PX4 FMU is an expandable, modular system comprising the PX4FMU Flight Management Unit (autopilot) and a number of optional interface modules (PX4IO, PX4IOAR).

In addition to the versatile PX4 FMU hardware platform, the PX4 introduces a sophisticated, modular software environment built on top of a POSIX like real-time operating system. The operating system and modular architecture support greatly simplify the process of experimenting with specific components of the system, this helps in reducing the barriers for new developers.

Standardized interface protocols between software components means adding support for new sensors, peripherals and expansion modules is straightforward. The on board micro SD storage permits logging at high-rates and data storage for custom applications. The MAVLink protocol support provides integration directly with existing ground control systems including QGroundControl and the APM Mission Planner.
