ArduVolans is an autopilot for remote controlled aircraft. At this point it has not seen any flight time. But all of the components work as expected.


  • ATMEGA 644P 16 Mhz processor
  • 64K of programming space
  • 2K of RAM
  • Single board design
  • 5 channel input from radio
  • 4 channel output to servers / ESC
  • 3 amp, 5 volt regulator which can optionally power servos
  • Battery voltage divider for monitoring battery level
  • Mediatek MT3329 GPS soldered on board
  • 3 axis gyro (L3G4200)
  • 3 axis magnetometer (HMC5883L)
  • 3 axis accelerometer (ADXL345)
  • Air pressure sensor (BMP085)
  • 256kbit EEPROM for logging
  • 7 IO pins available for expansion
  • 1.75" x 2.5"


This is my originaly prototype. This particular mish-mash of stuff has seen time in the air. It consists of a Sparkfun Arduino Mini board (you can't see it), located under the DIY Drones ArduIMU v2 board, a 506 GPS, DIY Drones airspeed sensor and a Sparkfun breadboard.
