Pixhawk Flight Controllers

Recommended Posts

From what I understand there are some folks selling counter fit Pixhawk  Flight Controllers....

Since I am in the market for one I would like to know if there is a way to tell the difference in the phony one and the real ones....

Part of the problem is the the PixHawk is open source, both hardware and soaftware.  So technically they aren’t clones.  3DR, the original official manufacturer of the PixHawk, stopped manufacturing hardware in 2016.  Most of the manufacturing moved to China.  

You should contact mRobotics, they have some great PX4/Ardupilot based controllers that are made in the US.  mRobotics is owned by the founder of 3DR and I believe they might still manufacture the PixHawk in San Diego.  There’s a lot of people using the Cube, it’s a good controller but by in large it’s Chinese.
