Applied Navigation continues to add support for industrial grade external devices. The latest of these are the Velocity series of ESCs from Currawong. The Velocity Electronic Speed Controller (ESC) series provide high-voltage, high-power, and efficient operation for large unmanned air vehicles.
The Quattro autopilot will automatically detect Currawong ESCs over CAN bus. Health and status information from each ESC is displayed to the user and also logged to the Quattro SD card for data analysis. Currawong support is just another way that the Quattro Flight Management System offers improved reliability, reduced wiring, and greater flexibility to our customers.
