mRo Pixhawk Flight Controller (Pixhawk 1)

The mRo Pixhawk is a hardware compatible version of the original Pixhawk 1. It runs PX4 on the NuttX OS.

The controller can be used as a drop-in replacement for the 3DR Pixhawk 1.

The main difference is that it is based on the Pixhawk-project FMUv3 open hardware design, which corrects a bug that limited the original Pixhawk 1 to 1MB of flash.
