Holybro Pix32 v5 Flight Controller & Optional Base Boards

Holybro Pix32 v5 Flight Controller

Pix32 v5 is an advanced autopilot flight controller designed and made by Holybro®. It is optimized to run on Ardupilot firmware and is intended for both academic and commercial developers. It is based on the Pixhawk-project FMUv5 open hardware design and can be regarded as a variant version of the Holybro Pixhawk4.

The Pix32 v5 has a modular design comprised of a separate flight controller and base board which are connected by a 100pin connector. It is designed for those pilots who need a high power, flexible and customizable flight control system. This design allows users to either use the two base board made by Holybro or customize their own.

We have designed and made two optional base boards for you to choose from, but you can also make a custom base board by yourself. You can ensure that the physical size, pinouts and power distribution requirements match your needs, and to have all the connections you need and none of the expense and bulk of connections you don’t. We have also made the flight controller and base board schematics public here .

If you’ve tried to use a Pixhawk4 or other flight controllers but struggled to make it fit your design, then the Pix32 v5 may be the answer with its ability to fit within a custom base board with just what you need.

Really can’t understand if this is a blog section or advertising section.
Why don’t you post in the hardware vendor section instead of infesting blog?
Coming here after 6 months and post an advert is not very helpful for the community.
