Summary

We are working to expand the capabilities of VOXL 2 every day. The built-in PX4 flight controller enables industry leading SWAP for an autonomous flight controller, but not every interface and flight controller are supported yet. This page provides an overview of available connectivity. If this connectivity is insufficient for your application, VOXL 2 is a world-class companion computer for autonomous navigation and AI when paired with an external flight controller.
