Arsov RC Technology

Pixracer V1 autopilot

The new Pixracer (formerly called XRacer) is available now and its going to be fully supported by the Arducopter and PX4 community. Its a genuine open source project.

Its design was created by Nick Arsov and Phillip Kocmoud and architected by Lorenz Meier, David Sidrane and Leonard Hall.

This is not just another small Pixhawk knock off or derivate, the Pixracer is the first autopilot of the new FMUv4 Pixhawk generation, coming with an upgraded Invensense Sensor generation. (bye bye tricky LSM) and a plug in Wifi board. A real upgrade compared to former versions.
