HKPilot Mega V2.5 Flight Controller USB/GYRO/ACC/MAG/BARO
The HKPilot Mega 2.5 is a complete open source autopilot system featuring the best selling technology. This version is ready to use, with no assembly required. It allows the user to turn any fixed wing, rotary wing or multi-rotor vehicle (even boats and car) into a fully autonomous vehicle capable of performing programmed GPS missions with waypoints (GPS module required - sold separately).
Features: • Arduino Compatible • pre-soldered and tested • 3-axis gyro, accelerometer, magnetometer and high-performance barometer • Built in 4 MP Dataflash chip for automatic data logging • Honeywell HMC5883L-TR Digital compass • Invensense's 6 DoF Accelerometer/Gyro MPU-6000 • Measurement Specialties MS5611-01BA03 Barometric pressure sensor. • Atmel ATMEGA2560 and ATMEGA32U-2 (processing and USB function). • Micro-USB
*Note: GPS module is not included. Sold separately.
Specs: Dimensions: 67x40x10mm Weight: 17g
Includes: HKPilot Mega 2.5 3pin 2.54mm pitch connection leads x 5
This product is based on the APM Project from 3D Robotics.
*Note: This is not an original Arduino brand product.
I am getting the accelerometers starting to drift when model is standing still on the ground ... this happens both when powered by one of the ESCs BEC and by USB ...
Any idea why?
Should I send it back?
Parece que a HK no le gustan los enlaces... pon en Google "ardupilot mega google code" y será* lo primero que te aparezca. Es un manual muy completo, con informació*n desde como conectar a como afinar el control.
Does anyone know where to source a four pin plug that will go into the mag socket on this board.
I have had some issues with the internal mag on a small quad being to close the internal electronics. I have a mag with different plug on the end from an APM 2.0 that should work / be easy enough to swap plugs.
Thanks in advance
Hi Matteo, I'm guessing for the IC2 port this should be a DF13-4S-1.25C
With the 4S relating to the number of wires and the 1.25C relating to the separation centres of the pins in mm? I couldn't seem to find DF13's at any other separation, although it seems odd to specify the pin distance if there is only one choice?
At first, the touch and fell is good. Nice solder quality. After fitting the right software, I come back with a review of the flight characteristics. First I have to fill it up with arducopter software. People say, that flies better than MWii, but i´ll see and come back with comments.
just the same as apm2.5 but missis a few pinheaders i instaled this in a case from the original manufacturer works great and cheap the soldering could be done a bit better but for the money who cares i did not yet have found problems with this yet
The board come with Arducopter 2.8 pre-loaded. I updated it to 3.0rc4. Everything seems to work normally. I've tested every sensor and they seem ok. Soldering is pretty good as well as the black color :) I will test it on my quad and report but the boards seems to be a great value. Too bad that HK don't ship it with some additional cables like the MegapirateNG board. I hope that they release APM case for it as well as the telemetry cable and some additional plugs and wires.

Initial impressions and testing are good. It takes a while to setup all correctly and make sure everything is working perfectly. Put it in my deadcat 450 didn't touch any settings took it up in stabilise mode and it flew nice and level. A bit pitch touchy but nothing settings can't fix (its the nature of the dead cat IMO). Also purchased the LEA 6 Ublox gps, will be posting follow up comments when more testing has been done. So far great value.

I installed this board on my dead cat quadcopter and so far it's worked like a charm! I haven't used it with the GPS yet but when I do I can post a comment to update everyone.
Setup: Deadcat frame, Multistar 30A 2-4S Brushless ESC, no-name 1000kv 2212 motors and 1045 props.
Only a couple of things could make it better- a side entry version like 3DR offers would work better for multicopters and protective plastic case like 3DR offers should be included to protect the investment
