MF7+MF8

Compact Flight Control System

Capabilities

  • Certified and non-certified versions
  • Small lightweight autopilot for mini air systems

Description

The MF7 and MF8 are compact hardware computer, were designed for various application possibilities. The heart of the platform forms an FPGA together with a high performant multicore processor.

Features

  • Integrated video processing and link system for mini air systems
  • Weight class, all in one solution, flight control, link, video

Main Benefits

Beside the variety of interfaces, it can be equipped with internal IMU or AHRS. Due to the compact and extremely leightweight design, both systems are perfectly suitable for the use in aviation.
