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!

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.

I had trouble connecting to satellites with this. Then I remembered seeing a video where the gps unit didn't have a plastic housing around it. I took mine off and presto! Connected to 6 satellites in under 2 minutes.

Is it happening to somebody else that when balanced/manual mode arkbird seems limiting my throttle to 50-60%. Once it gets to RTH I can see it goes 100%. In menu I can see only controll of RTH throttle. Thanks

I'm in the DIY stages in building a 3D printed Hovership MHQ2 and would like to get the Arkbird, but which flight controller should I pair it with?

I just bought the arkbird OSD, how does it connect to the futaba r3008sb receiver in terms of receiver power supply? The futaba r3008sb receiver when working without the Arkbird OSD gets its power supply from channel 3 which is connected to the 5v UBEC supply. But if the futaba r3008sb receiver is to be connected to the arkbird OSD and the ESC, how are the wires connected?

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!
