MicroPilot Launches Miniature Helicopter Autopilot
August 29, 2006
Continuing its tradition of leadership in small UAV autopilots, MicroPilot announces the launch of the smallest vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) autopilot in the world, the MP2128HELI.
Despite its small size the MP2128HELI incorporates more functionality than is commonly found in larger UAV autopilots. It provides 150 MIPS of processing power, extraordinary user definability and upward compatibility, making it not only the smallest VTOL autopilot in the world but also one of the most versatile at a price point never before seen in helicopter autopilots. This product also comes with MicroPilot’s HORIZONmp ground control software, which will make the MP2128HELI one of the most sought-after helicopter autopilot packages on the market today.
Based on proven MicroPilot fixed-wing UAV autopilot technology, the MP2128HELI can fly both fixed-wing and VTOL UAV’s. It is suitable for rotary wing, ducted fan and other VTOL UAV’s. The MP2128HELI is upward compatible with the popular MP2x28g and the recently-developed premium autopilot, the MP2128g. It comes with MicroPilot’s HORIZONmp UAV ground control software and is fully integrated – all sensors, including the IMU, fit in this one, powerful, lightweight autopilot.
Equipped with an ultrasonic altitude sensor, the MP2128HELI supports autonomous takeoff and landing. At 28 grams it holds the title as the smallest and lightest VTOL UAV autopilot in the world. Like all MicroPilot’s products, the MP2128HELI comes with the exceptional customer technical support of MicroPilot’s highly qualified technical support representatives.
