Qualcomm® Flight Pro™ Development Kit

What’s inside the kit

Before you purchase the Qualcomm® Flight Pro™ Development Kit, please be aware of the following:
  • The Flight Pro Kit is for users with advanced skills in software, electronic and mechanical assembly
  • The Flight Pro Kit requires the purchase of additional 3rd party hardware to build a flyable drone – See World Electronics website.
  • The Flight Pro Kit does not include flight control software – this is available from the Qualcomm Developer Network website
  • The Flight Pro Kit only supports the Electronic Speed Controller sold by Intrinsyc

Additional Accessories

Qualcomm® Electronic Speed Control (ESC) board

The 4-in-1 ESC board with cables is used with the Qualcomm® Flight Pro development board. It is a fully integrated solution for advanced control of four brushless motors. A dedicated microcontroller from Atmel (ATmega328) for each motor ensures reliable real-time operation and speed control.


Qualcomm® Flight Pro™ Development Board

The Qualcomm® Flight Pro™ Development Board is recommended for those who have previously purchased the Qualcomm® Flight Pro™ Development Kit.  You can purchase additional Flight Development Boards to increase the count of your robotic platforms and reduce overall product costs.
