ELEV8 Flight Controller

The ELEV-8 Flight Controller is quadcopter control solution, designed for the ELEV-8 v3 Quadcopter.

  • Requires a signed user agreement prior to purchase see resources tab for information
  • 32-bit, 8-core, 80 MHz Propeller P8X32A and 64 KB EEPROM
  • Wide supply voltage range compatible with 2S to 5S battery packs
  • LSM9DS1 IMU (3D accelerometer, 3D gyroscope, 3D magnetometer)
  • LPS25H pressure sensor for altimeter and barometer data
  • RF module socket for wireless telemetry; XBee 900 MHz modules recommended
The ELEV-8 Flight Controller firmware works in coordination with Ground Station software for configuration, diagnostics, and live telemetery of sensor data. It's a great tool for educators and students exploring the physics principles of flight dynamics, as well as for the developer or hobbyist experimenting with custom applications.

The ELEV-8 Flight Controller features the Propeller P8X32A, a 32-bit, 8-core microcontroller. Its multi-core architecture allows for simultaneous sensor monitoring and motor control. In addition, the multiple cores and modular, open-source C-language firmware facilitate code customization—no interrupts involved!

The ELEV-8 Flight Controller hardware, its C-language firmware, and the accompanying Ground Station software are all Parallax Open Source projects; see the individual files for details.
