Two ArduPilot Mega 2560 Flight Controllers plus GPS, plus mags - ONE LEFT@\!

The used APM along with the mag and GPS has been sold. Still have the new APM, mag, and GPS available.

Two ArduPilot APM1.0 Flight controllers/autopilots. These FC's are capable of controlling traditional helis, quads through oct multicopters, fixed wing, or even land based vehicles. These are the latest ATMega2560 processor based at 16mhz processor board with the "OilPan 1.4 version H IMU board containing 3 axis gyros, 3 axis accelerometers, barometric altimeter, etc. etc. These are the absolute best FC's on the market for FPV.

-Relay switch for cameras, lights or payloads
-12-bit ADC for better Gyro/Accel/AirSpeed resolution
-Built-in 16MB Data Logger (The Black Box).
-Piano DIP switch for servo reverse or user customizable.
- USB.
-Dedicated OSD port. Plug N'Play with ArduOSD
- Plug N'Play telemetry with XBee or 3DR radios
- I2C Port with incoming "Daisy Chain board" allowing you to build sensor arrays.
-Two user-programmable buttons (one momentary, the other slide).
-10-Bit analog expansion ports for current, voltage sensors or other.
- IDG500/IDZ500 3 axis Invensense gyros
-Analog Devices ADX330 Accelerometer.
-AirSpeed sensor port
-Absolute Bosch BMP085 pressure sensor and temp for accurate altitude
- Dedicated GPS port
- Dedicated port for optional HMC5843 magnetometer

This is the most full featured and flexible FC on the market. It can be used with ArduPilot software, MultiWii, AeroQuad software and others.

Here is the IMU shield:

APM #1 has been used but fully checked out and in excellent condition - $160 shipped

APM#2 is brand new and assembled by DIYDrones and never been flown but has been loaded with firmware and checked out - $190 shipped

Used Magnetometer #1 - $30 shipped
New Magnetometer for #2 - $35 shipped

MediaTek GPS #1 $25 shipped
MediaTek GPS #2 $30 shipped

I will ship International! Prices are for CONUS. International will be plus whatever additional shipping costs.

I will load whatever ArduPilot firmware you want prior to shipment.

Thanks for looking!

You are quite a bit off. Show me your data? Here's mine....

Two of them sold just last week. One went for $225 with the GPS here:

The other went for around $190 in one day because it was a killer price here:

DIYDrones sells them for $299 assembled and tested here:

and for $250 If you solder them yourself here:

Canada Drones has them a bit cheaper - $279

JDrones has them here:

for $279 with no GPS

There are two versions of this board set. The 1280 based board is obsolete and won't run the current ArduPilot code - at least not the Multicopter code. Those do go for about $50 less. The 2560 based one is required to run the latest software and it's the latest one of which mine are.

No, based on recent sales and what they are selling for new the price is a good deal. The challenge is most people are looking for basic sportcopter boards and not full autopilot UAV boards. DIYDrones has a new one called APM2.0 but it lacks many, many features that the APM1.0 has and is not a replacement for it. For one, the APM2.0 has the GPS integrated on the board which is a problem for most people - you can't protect it because you block the GPS signal.

So, thanks for the comment but you clearly didn't do your homework. These are top of the line flight controllers for people doing AP, serious FPV, or larger UAV stuff. If you want to spend $60 you can buy a KK but that's about it.

Hi all,

Everything is sold. I have a couple of more APM1.0 kits (with GPS and mag) that I plan to put up for sale that are brand new, never been flown but I want to fire them up and check them out before putting up for sale. I'll probably get to that next week and create a new ad. For now, these items are all sold.

Thanks all for your interest!
