Description

Falcon 2 Overview

The Falcon 2 is a 32-bit, ARM Cortex M0+ based flight controller capable of both manual (rate, auto-level and heading free), as well as automated (altitude hold, loiter and return to home) modes. It connects to either a standard 8-channel, CPPM, DSM2/DSMX or SBUS satellite receiver and combines this pilot input with gyroscope, accelerometer, magnetometer (compass) and barometer (altitude) sensors. These allow it to stabilise and fly any number of pre-set or custom multi-rotor (drone) configurations through a motor mixer editor. The Falcon 2’s various settings are also configurable “in the field” using its miniature OLED user interface.
