    Download the AeroQuad Software


    AeroQuad hardware typically consists of the fully-featured STM32-based AeroQuad32 flight controller board or an Arduino microcontroller (Mega 2560 or Uno) as the flight controller board, and an AeroQuad shield with various sensors, such as an accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer (heading), barometer (altitude hold) ultrasonic sensors and GPS.

    Below you'll find an overview of the features AeroQuad offers you:

    Multiple flight configurations are supported:
    • Tri
    • Quad X, Quad +, Quad Y4
    • Hex X, Hex +, Hex Y6
    • Octo X, Octo +, Octo X8

    Flight options supported:
    • Heading hold with magnetometer or gyro
    • Altitude hold with barometer
    • Altitude hold with ultrasonic sensor (best for low altitude hold and terrain following)

    Enhanced battery monitoring options:
    • Measurement of battery voltage, used capacity and current
    • Enable auto descent on critical battery voltage
    • Auto-detect battery cell count
    • Integration with On Screen Display (OSD)

    Multiple receiver options:
    • Up to 10 channel receivers supported
    • PWM receivers
    • PPM receivers
    • PPM using hardware timer
