ThePeach FCC-R1


PX4 does not manufacture this (or any) autopilot. Contact the manufacturer for hardware support or compliance issues.

ThePeach FCC-R1 is an advanced autopilot designed and made in ThePeach.

It is based on the Pixhawk-project FMUv3 open hardware design and runs PX4 on Nuttx OS.

Voltage Ratings

ThePeach FCC-R1 can be double-redundant on the power supply if two power sources are supplied. The two power rails are: POWER and USB.


  1. The output power rails FMU PWM OUT and I/O PWM OUT do not power the flight controller board (and are not powered by it). You must supply power to one of POWER or USB or the board will be unpowered.
  2. The USB do not power the Raspberry Pi CM3+. You must supply power to POWER or the Raspberry Pi CM3+ will be unpowered.

Normal Operation Maximum Ratings

Under these conditions, all power sources will be used in this order to power the system:

  1. POWER input (5V to 5.5V)
  2. USB input (4.75V to 5.25V)

Absolute Maximum Ratings

Under these conditions, all power sources cause permanent damage to the flight controller.

  1. POWER input (5.5V Over)

  2. USB input (5.5V Over)
