AUTOPILOT

The highly integrated DAS autopilot is small and light, yet powerful. Sacrificing nothing for its compact, weight-saving design, the DAS Autopilot integrates all flight sensors, communication and payload interface into a neat, elegant package.

  • DASAPS V3 can fly multi-rotor, fixed-wing, helicopter, Transition VTOL.
  • 210 DMIPS RISC processor accommodates current needs and tomorrows requirements.
  • Fully integrated with Redundant 3-axis gyros/ accelerometers, GPS, pressure altimeter, pressure airspeed sensors, all on a single circuit board.
  • Extensive data logging and telemetry collects the data you need.
  • Powerful command set.
  • Hover at or fly through waypoints.
  • Includes Scryer ground control software at additional cost.
  • Features include extensive input/output, high speed servos and onboard data logging.
  • Expandable avionics architecture enables a wide range of integrated payloads and sensors.
