Targets that run Tau Labs

This is a partial list of targets(flight controller) that run the Tau Labs software stack.

  • Flying F3 - cheap (<15$) commercially available STM32F3 based platform system. Typically requires a shield to break out the connectors or some manual wiring. Capable of RTH and PH.
  • Sparky - small single sided STM32F3 flight controller. Capable of altitude hold, RTH and PH. more information here
  • Sparky2 - more powerful STM32F4 version of Sparky with integrated radio. Capable of altitude hold, RTH and PH and navigation. more information here
  • RevoMini - OpenPilot STM32F4 based board.
  • FlyingF4 - STM32F4 based discovery board but needs a shield to provide sensors.
  • Quanton - powerful STM32F4 based platform with large amounts of connectivity including 8 PWM in and 8 PWM out, and four serial ports. Fully navigation capable.
  • Gemini - mini FPV hex racer from Team Black Sheep that uses Colibri flight controller (derivative of Quanton).
  • Copter Control - Older STM32F1 based platform. Legacy support and not recommended for new designs.

Schematics and board layouts for open source hardware designs are available in /flight/targets/.
