Introducing AvA: Advanced VTOL Autonomy for the FireFLY6
BirdsEyeView Aerobotics is proud to introduce AvA: Advanced VTOL Autonomy for the FireFLY6. AvA is the culmination of a year of behind-the-scenes development and testing, producing a powerful, elegant single controller autopilot solution for the FireFLY6.
AvA is flight control firmware, designed for the PX4hawk autopilot, that gracefully handles the FireFLY6 in all regimes – takeoff to landing. Flight mode transitions from hover to forward flight (and back) are fully AvA-controlled, making transitions a simple matter of flicking a switch. Read more here
With AvA, we focused on making mapping missions with the FireFLY6 easy, with intuitive access to the necessary flight planning and image georeferencing tools and a new series of mapping camera mounts.
AvA is built on an APM:Copter foundation, stripped down to the simple essentials and tailored to the FireFLY6. As a result, we’re also happy to announce our membership in the Dronecode Project!
