The APM 2.5.2/2.6/2.8 Pixhawk module designed as an easy way of providing APM 2.5 with clean power from a LiPo battery. And also current consumption and battery voltage measurements, all performed via a 6-pos cable. The on-board switching regulator in the module outputs 5.3V and a maximum of 2.25A from 2S-6S LiPo battery. This Power Module comes completely assembled with Dean’s connectors, and enclosed in shrink tubing for protection.
Note: The power Module merely designed to power APM, an RC receiver, and APM accessories (GPS, 3DR radio). And not designed to power the servos. Use your aircraft’s own ESC/BEC for that. This module Used to detect the battery voltage and therefore the battery current. The control board receives two signals, calculates the remaining battery power, estimates the remaining flight time. Moreover, the module also comes with the BEC function. So we have to output 5.3 DC, 3A maximum continuous current for the control board to supply a stable power supply. Another signal cable connectors are utilized in Japan original fittings, non-domestic joint, so APM control board and reliable connection between the power supply module.
The APM 2.5.2/2.6/2.8 Multicopter Flight Controller is completely an open-source autopilot system that can control Planes, Copters, and Rovers. These are professional quality IMU autopilot based on the Arduino Mega platform. It allows the user to turn any fixed, rotary-wing, in addition, it is capable of turning the multirotor vehicle into a fully autonomous vehicle. Moreover, it performs programmed GPS missions with waypoints.
