The kit consists of the following components:

Powered by an AeroCore 2 for the DuoVero, which contains an ARM Cortex-M4 microprocessor, and an included DuoVero Zephyr-Y COM, the Autonomous Kit For DuoVero offers all the tools you need for your unmanned aerial vehicle.

With NutX RTOS for real-time servo control and onboard WiFi 802.11b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.1 communications, the Autonomous Kit for DuoVero will have you flying in no time at all.

The brain of the kit is the AeroCore 2 MAV control board which runs NuttX RTOS for real time servo control and sensor measurements. The DuoVero COM provides access to onboard wifi and Bluetooth 3.0 and/or 802.11b/g/n wireless communications transmitted by the U.FL antenna. It is fully compatible with PX4 software, including MAVLink and QGroundControl and supports Mission Planner, ArduPilot and APM Planner.

This kit replaces the discontinued AeroCore DV Kit and features the new AeroCore 2 for DuoVero and the Pre-GO board.
