We are proud to introduce the Arsov AUAV X2 (PX4 Inspired and Compatible). After waiting several months for a specific component, we decided to resign the board and replace that hard to source component with a suitable replacement. It is built upon the lessons learned from the X1 boards. This board is compatible with the PX4 firmware and the new larger mIMU v2 daughter boards allows for much larger number of Gyro and Accelerometer options in the future. Our goal was to product a high quality, compact, light weight and cost effective alternative to the PX4 V2 or PixHawk autopilots.

Two versions of power supply:

1. AUAV-X2 regular is based on TPS63061 DC-DC Buck-Boost

The TPS63061 device provides a power supply solution for products powered by either three-cell up to six-cell alkaline, NiCd or NiMH battery, or a one-cell or dual-cell Li-Ion or Li-polymer battery. Output currents can go as high as 2A while using a dual-cell Li-Ion or Li-Polymer Battery, and discharge it down to 5V or lower. So you can connect a 2 cell Li-Po directly to the AUAV X2, and run it completely flat before brownout. Since it’s a buck-boost converter, you can also power from a 5V BEC while still in regulation.

2. AUAV-X2Q ( quiet ) is without TPS63061. It must be powered from an external source between 5.3VDC and 5.5VDC.
