The Arkbird Autopilot System w/OSD is an all-in-one solution for your FPV model's navigation. This unit is loaded with features such as GPS waypoint flight, "Return to Home" functionality, auto-leveling, altitude hold and much more! It utilizes GPS, barometer and attitude sensors to stabilize/control your model's flight.
Worried about losing control of your FPV model when flying out of sight? With the Arkbird Autopilot System on-board there is no need to worry! The "Return to Home" function can be activated at any time to fly your model back to its take-off position and will be activated automatically in the event that your model flies out of RF range. Set a "fence area" so you don't fly outside defined boundaries.
The integrated OSD system provides you with all of the information you need during flight such as altitude, flying direction, home direction, roll angle, pitch angle and time since take-off just to name a few. This system also includes a current sensor with pre-installed XT60 power plugs so you can monitor your model's flight battery status via the OSD.
The Arkbird Autopilot System comes with everything you need to setup your FPV model for the ultimate in GPS based Autopilot flight. It features a "plug and play" design meaning there is no soldering or modification required to use. All power plugs and wire connections are pre-installed.

I have several autopilots including two Arkbirds. Definitely my favorite. Set up is very easy with basic, self explanatory menus. Very reliable and always gets a good satellite lock. Did have one arrive faulty but HK replaced with about a 1.5 week turnaround. One of the cheapest out there and way ahead of the Cyclops range.
