# ARK Electronics ARKV6X


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

The USA-built ARKV6X flight controller is based on the FMUV6X and Pixhawk Autopilot Bus open source standards (opens new window).

With triple synced IMUs, data averaging, voting, and filtering is possible. The Pixhawk Autopilot Bus (PAB) form factor enables the ARKV6X to be used on any PAB-compatible carrier board, such as the ARK Pixhawk Autopilot Bus Carrier.
