From FoxTech Hobby:

This Pixhawk2.1 Intel Edison version is ideal for those who are looking for more computing power with Pixhawk 2.1 autopilot. With its dual core atom processor the Edison compute module will have loads of processing power for whatever application you decide to use this autopilot for(computer vision tasks or advanced flight algorithms). At the heart of the pixhawk 2 is the cube, which is an isolated and damped high precision, redundant IMU unit to ensure the flight calculations are accurate, and reliable. The intel Edison compute module simply plugs into this pixhawk 2.1 carrier board and provides all of the I/O functionality of the standard Pixhawk 2 carrier board.

This kit includes the precision Here GNSS GPS module with large ground plane for accurate and interference free GPS positioning. So you just need to add your own Intel Edison compute module to use this autopilot.

Features:

  • Triple redundant vibration damped IMU with support for up to 3 GPS modules
  • All in one design with integrated FMU
  • Heating system to fly in very low temperatures
  • Lots of I/O ports
  • Directly compatible with Intel Edison module (intel edison module not included)
  • Onboard battery backup for FMU and IO SRAM/RTC
  • Separate power supplies for FMU and IO

I'm confused. they released a new product based around a discontinued board?

I get that the edison is optional, but it may never be an option.

It wasn't discontinued when the carrier was released.

Pixhawk 2 was discontinued? The 56$ Pixhawk 2.4.8 from Banggood is a rock solid board.

Am I the only one that thinks they are shooting themselves in the foot trying to do too much? The PH2 just screams feature creep.
