This is the LATEST APM version available from 3DRobotics, no clones or cheap stuff!



This new presentation of the ArduPilotMega 2.6 system features all the same goodies as the predecessor, same CPU, same memory, same case, power module... but it comes without magnetometer on the main board (compass)
This sensor is moved to the GPS to allow less interference and more precision.

The ArduPilot Mega 2.6 is a complete open source autopilot system and the bestselling technology that won the prestigious 2012 Outback Challenge UAV competition. This version is ready to use, with no assembly required. It allows the user to turn any fixed, rotary wing or multirotor vehicle (even cars and boats) into a fully autonomous vehicle; capable of performing programmed GPS missions with waypoints.

  • Arduino Compatible!
  • Comes pre-soldered (with SIDE pins) and tested.
  • Includes 3-axis gyro, accelerometer along with a high-performance barometer
  • Onboard 4 MP Dataflash chip for automatic datalogging
  • Digital compass powered by Honeywell's HMC5883L-TR chip, now included on the UBlox GPS module!
  • One of the first open source autopilot systems to use Invensense's 6 DoF Accelerometer/Gyro MPU-6000.
  • Barometric pressure sensor upgraded to MS5611-01BA03, from Measurement Specialties.
  • Atmel's ATMEGA2560 and ATMEGA32U-2 chips for processing and usb functions respectively.

  • Kit includes the APM, GPS, Telemetry cable, Micro USB cable, DF13 6 Position connector for the Power Module, the XT60 Power module itself and case!
Please note that this version of APM is not compatible with GPS units without onboard magnetometers. (or at least you need a separate external compass)

Firmware quick information:

APM 2.6 purchase review March 8, 2014
Reviewer: Mark from Edmonton, AB Canada  
Two thumbs up! Ordered on a Thursday and received it the following Friday - packaged very well. Great to have a company in Canada to support. Looking forward to buying more and keeping it 'local!'

Good Product January 22, 2014
Reviewer: Mark from Toronto, ON Canada  
This APM was a replacement for another APM 2.6 damaged by an electrical short (now relegated to testbench duty only).  I live in the area, so arranging a pickup was quick and gave an opportunity for a friendly chat about RC stuff with Dany.

first bad second perfect September 27, 2013
Reviewer: chris stoddard from Surrey, BC Canada  
Received a possible DOA APM 2.6 - Dany replaced no problem at all.  New APM mounted on RCTimer S800 EVO clone, works so awesome and I'm thrilled.
