    jDrones NEO6 GPS with compass for multicopters using Pixhawk

    Our high quality GPS module, now upgraded to include an external compass. This custom made GPS module for multicopters using Pixhawk/ArduCopter utilizes NEO6 modules and a high gain antenna. High accuracy HMC5983 compass with I2C level converters, filtering and LDOs are installed on board to make it a convenient packet. Pixhawk detects automatically the external compass and starts using it. External compass is always more accurate than internal due to magnetic interference inherent in internal compasses.

    The GPS uses a custom made jDrones active pach antenna that has internal amplifier and SAW filters to give the best accuracy for GPS signal reception. Antenna can easily be dismounted from the GPS unit so it can be mounted higher than the other electronics. It's also easy to mount an additional ground plane on the antenna unit itself to make the antenna more sensitive.

    With this module you will get a really accurate position hold, GPS location information, and heading from the compass. This jDrones NEO6 GPS Multicopter module with compass is what we currently use for all our high end devices.
