Introducing the HoverGames Drone Developer Kit (KIT-HGDRONEK66)

The HoverGames development kit KIT-HGDRONEK66 is open and extensible. You can easily add new components, from sensors to processors. And, as a member of DroneCode.org, which is part of Linux Foundation, the new HoverGames platform is supported by the PX4 flight stack.

The combination makes it perfect for learning and developing new forms of industrial mobility, whether it flies, roves on land, or glides in water.

It’s what you need to participate in the HoverGames!

The KIT-HGDRONEK66 includes components for a base platform, including:

HoverGames Flight Controller, which features:

  • 180 MHz NXP Kinetis Arm® Cortex®-M4 MCU
  • On board IMU (accelerometer, gyro, magnetometer)
  • Automotive CAN and 100Base T1 2-wire automotive Ethernet interfaces
  • Standard PWM outputs, I2C, SPI, and UARTS.

Complete carbon fiber quadcopter drone frame

NOTE: The kit does not include a LiPo battery and a telemetry radio, which must be purchased for your region.

See:

  • HGD-TELEM433 433 MHz telemetry radio for KIT-HGDRONEK66 (Common in Europe)
  • HGD-TELEM915 915 MHz telemetry radio for KIT-HGDRONEK66 (Common in North America)

If you want only the flight controller, it can be purchased separately.

The platform is open and extensible. New components, from sensors to processors, can be easily added.

The combination makes it perfect for learning and developing new forms of industrial mobility, whether it flies, roves on land, or glides in water.
