Arkbird Autopilot System w/OSD V3.1020 (GPS/Altitude Hold/Auto-Level)

The Arkbird Autopilot System w/OSD is an all-in-one solution for your FPV model's navigation. This unit is loaded with features such as GPS waypoint flight, "Return to Home" functionality, auto-leveling, altitude hold and much more! It utilizes GPS, barometer and attitude sensors to stabilize/control your model's flight.

Worried about losing control of your FPV model when flying out of sight? With the Arkbird Autopilot System on-board there is no need to worry! The "Return to Home" function can be activated at any time to fly your model back to its take-off position and will be activated automatically in the event that your model flies out of RF range.

The integrated OSD system provides you with all of the information you need during flight such as altitude, flying direction, home direction, roll angle, pitch angle and time since take-off just to name a few. This system also includes a current sensor with pre-installed XT60 power plugs so you can monitor your model's flight battery status via the OSD.

The Arkbird Autopilot System comes with everything you need to setup your FPV model for the ultimate in GPS based Autopilot flight. It features a "plug and play" design meaning there is no soldering or modification required to use. All power plugs and wire connections are pre-installed.

The user manual shows a series of video screens during setup. Where do I get the screens from? From goggles or the Transmitter, if so which brand Tx ?

Ideally this Arkbird unit should be used with a video transmitter so you can use the On Screen Display Function. A Camera on the aircraft will plug into the Arkbird, the Arkbird adds the OSD data and then outputs it to your video transmitter. What you need then is a video receiver and a screen/googles to view it 'on the ground'. If you dont want to use the OSD function you dont have to, but it is way better if you do. You will just need a screen for initial setup, which you could plug the arkbird into your TV via a modified RCA to servo cable to get the video feed up. It doesnt matter what brand you get, just buy the video TX/RX as a kit here on HobbyKing and you cant go wrong otherwise channels might not line up. also get a camera for live view and a 7inch screen to view it on. This product works great in my Bixler2. Search 'Arkbird OSD' on the you tube to see it in action.

so i wonder has anyone used this newer version to try a multicopter yet? i thought i read in the manual it does support the quadcopter multicopter platform as well as the fixed wing and delta wing. anyone? i have the older version and use it for my raptor fpv plane and i wouldnt trade it for anything it works so well im very pleased. now i need a multicopter version i want the best most stable flight though for taking aireal videos. any recomendations for the fc that you believe is the best will help me alot remember i need osd as well but stability for a quad is first for my bird. tommy

good points for this AP: Cheap Easy to use even for NBs Fully integrated Main desired options required for beginner and advanced FPVer Good introduction to AP world leading to a good usage & understanding for future switch to DIY ARDUpilots... Finally all in all ARKBIRD then later on full ARDUpilot conf finally cost cheaper for a better quality than a FY teck complete system witch can cost easily up to 1000 dol for not a better result, i would say even lower. With Ardu, you get total energy indication, Air speed indication, good to calculate Head/tail wind for maximum range ( avoid low bat on the way back if Head wind...) In my opinion that's is definitely the real best choice to go later for nuts ARDUpilot FPV!! PS: that's more that 1 year I am getting documented on that subject... Only 4 for overall rating cause no sensor upgrade capability.

producto muy recomendable para fpv y otras modalidades..es un poco lioso porque los cables que van del receptor al autopilot no tienen almenos el color negro en el negativo. pero con cuidado y vigilando mucho no es problema.los cables para la camara i el emisor de video tambien se tiene que mirar las polaridades porque no estan del todo iguales...los cables son un poco cortos y duros..si se tiene un avion pequeño es un coñazo....por lo demas con unos bueno alargos se consigue todo..pero sera dificil no tener que coger el soldador i el estaño. provado en tres vuelos...el resultado esta muy bien...se enciende la emisora sin ningun tipo de activacion y funciona a la primera..es un poco brusco en la modalidad de autoestabilizacion pero bien, muy bien..en vuelo de vuelta a casa es muy rapido y bastante preciso..un poco desordenado porque cuando esta encima del punto de inicio una vez gira a izquierda otra a derechas y no tiene un patron marcado...una vez gira mas cerca otra vez mas lejos pero el resultado final es muy bueno..si no tienes la altura minima acelera el motor y si pasas de la altura minima baja planeando muy controlado y bien una vez esta a la altura el mismo se va dando gas y quitando...el giro de vuelta a casa es muy brusco pero controlado..de momento estoy muy contento y la verdad con lo que cuesta un avi0n equipado y con todo el fpv solo con recuperarl

parte 2..para entrar en el setup tengo que alerones y cola a un lado los dos..una vez entras con la profundidad arriba y abajo navegas y con alerones a derechas entras en el submenu y cuando esta seleccionado lo que quieres alerones a la izquierda y ya esta..a mi me pasa que cuando entra en setup el motor se enciende..a muy pocas revoluciones pero es recomendable sacar la helice...con las baterias a menos de media carga a veces falla la transicion cuando pones el autopilot..y se para.. pero lo achaco mas al variador que al autopilot...porque cuando esta a media o a tope de carga no falla nunca...tardo muy poco en coger los satelites el gps..

I bought this as my first OSD and autopilot.
Not very dificult to install, but it peace a higjh tecnology,and as so you need to know what your are locking for, and the principels of fisics behind it. I supose all devices of this king requiry the same background knoledge.
Worked sing the first trial, but testing has not yet been very extensive. It's acording to expectation so far.
I have already required suport, and could find with some effort (see ww.rcgroups.com if needed).Support was very quick and client oriented . Like!
