Product Description
ArduPilot Mega 1.4 with ATmega 2560 "New Generation"

Features
ArduPilot Mega 2560 This ArduPilot Mega kit has now been discontinued; please see the new replacement link below, this isthe
direct replacement. This page is for reference only.

This product has been replaced with the ArduPilot Mega 2.6 This is

the new ArduPilot Mega 2560, Arduino-compatible autopilot board using the new ATmega 2560. The original version of thisboard
(with ATmega1280) was used to win the annual autonomous vehicle competition organized by SparkFun. The ArduPilot ATmega2560 is
a fully programmable autopilot that requires an Oilpan IMU and GPS unit to create a functioning Unmanned AerialVehicle

(UAV). The ArduPilot Mega autopilot handles both the stabilization and navigation, eliminating the need fora separate stabiliz
system. It also supports a "fly-by-wire" mode that can stabilize an aircraft when flying under manual RC control, which means
that it makes it easier and safer to fly. The hardware and software is open source and the board comes withall
the surface-mount parts already soldered, but requires the user to solder on an included 3 x 16 connector. The RCinterface
firmware is already loaded, however the autopilot software must be downloaded and loaded onto the board by the user. All
details and instructions can be found at the project's home page. Please note: The ArduPilot Mega is not supplied withthe male
pin headers.  To connect the Ardupilot to the RX you will need female to female servo cables or radio wires, theycome
indifferent lengths, you will need as many cables as channels you are using on the autopilot. It can be programmed withthe Arduino
IDE. All details and instructions can be found at the project's home page. Looking for the ArduPilot Mega 1280 clickhere
