The HKPilot32 is the next step in FC hardware with its powerful ST micro 32bit ARM Cortex core and massive I/O support. The HK Pilot32 is one of the most advanced autopilot systems available with support for almost any type of vehicle from a moon rover or a multirotor aircraft, even a submarine! Designed by the PX4 open-hardware project, it is supported by a number of development communities making this one of the most flexible and reliable platforms for vehicle control, with many features and functions sure to be available in the future.
Included in this set is a super precision Neo-7M digital GPS with compass powered by Honeywells HMC5883L-TR chip and a telemetry radio system which includes an OSD. The barometric pressure sensor has been upgraded to a MS5611-01BA03 from Measurement Specialities

Note: HK Pilot32 is a PPM-input autopilot, which means that it gets RC input from a single cable to the receiver, either via the PPM port, the Futaba S.BUS port, or the special satellite receiver port for Spektrum gear. Most modern RC receivers allow for PPM output, but some, such as non-S.BUS Futaba receivers do not.

- Blade Count:
very nice set could be perfect if included the ppm encoder though is one of the best flight controler
Mine works flawless really happy with the result. It even comes with the dual mini usb cable to run tower on a smart device. No firmware issues just follow the setup procedures from ardupilot website and you'll be fine. Only thing that wasn't good was the gps/compass mount the plastic is really weak. I would just replace that with a aluminum setup. Don't hesitate to buy this!
This is one of the best flight controler pack for me but :
- The gps foldable stand is one of the worst so think to order a "real one"
And i advice to order the external led and usb combo because if it's inside of a multicopter you have to let the usb port accesible and be allowed to see the led of the hkpilot
ps: Don't fogot to have a ppm/sbus output on your rx or a converter ;)
monte sur une aile fx-61 phantom pour des mission fpv long rang avec uhf 433 fonctionne aussi bien que le pixhawk sur mon drone super.
Very nice set for the price. Installation was pretty straight forward. The only thing that was very difficult, was to arm it and get te motors to spin. Nothing seemed to work to fix this. The only solutions I found was to override the safety switch in the parameter list. Not happy with this flaw. Otherwise a great product
Nice kit. You must flash with the latest FW to get the best out of this kit. Just released was the 3.3 beta. Has a lot of nice features worth checking out. I just purchased this same kit for my 680 UC hexacopter. Awsome....
this doesn't have much videos for the setup yet but using the same wiring and other tips for the older 2.7 version helped a lot. mission planner is excellent and I also got 5 sats from the gps included even though I was sitting behind my desk in concrete room with no window so I don't expect this to be a weak gps when I maiden my build hopefully soon. I'll get back with better review after my first flight using this FC
If you aren't connecting with a Spectrum satellite receiver, you will need a PPM encoder. This package does not come with a PPM encoder. Why not? You will have to buy from 3DR to enable you to connect your RC receiver. Buy it here: https://store.3drobotics.com/products/ppm-encoder
