autopilot system is a versatile UAV system based around the VRBRAIN
multipurpose board loaded with a 32 bit version of Arducopter firmware
and a ground station based on Mission Planner
software . The autopilot controls the multicopter during flight using internal gyroscopes, accelerometers, and other electronic components. Flight missions are created using Mission Planner on your ground station and loaded onto the autopilot. Once the copter is placed in autonomous mode, the autopilot receives location data from the GPS module and executes the mission script. For safety, a radio control (RC) receiver is connected to the APM to allow for manual control using an RC transmitter.
