Pixhack - a better pixhawk alternative?
« on: September 23, 2015, 18:00:21 »
If you have been to our website recently you might of noticed that we are now selling a full pixhack autopilot kit.  For once I am happy to see a genuine pixhawk clone/alternative that actualy shows some forms of innovation in the design.

The most notable feature of the pixhack that makes it better than a pixhawk in my opinion is the fact that the sensors are all mounted onto a floating vibration isolation platform, similar to what the DJI autopilots use.

 [ Invalid Attachment ]

Otherwise the kit includes a full set of addon peripherals including the Ublox M8N GPS, power module, and minimOSD.  In addition if you purchase from unmanned tech, we will back this product with a 90 day manufacturer warranty, so if any hardware faults crop up within this perioed that are due to manufacturing errors we will replace the board for you.  You can find out more about this autopilot on our website.

Are you sure that your pictures show a genuine Pixhack ?

The original Pixhack is coming with a CNC Aluminium housing (black,grey,gold) and is made by CUAV, introduced at RCGroups and DIY drones already last year, available since march.

But your pictures show a rather cheap looking copy of it.

Are you selling this copy or the genuine one by CUAV ?

We are selling the CUAV version of the pixhack board, but felt that the aluminium case was unnecessarily expensive compared to a plastic case.  This helps keep the price much lower.

But that aside, we are a UK based shop an offer a full support and a 90 day warranty against any possible manufacturing defects, as we dont sell cheap clone boards that are not tested.  So if you have any issues that where not caused by user error we will repair/replace the board for you as we ensure the boards pass a series of QC tests at the factory, and we test a few from each batch again when they arrive with us in the UK.

Also our next batch of Pixhack boards will now include the V2 telemetry kit.
