# Holybro pix32 Flight Controller

PX4 does not manufacture this (or any) autopilot. Contact the [manufacturer](https://shop.holybro.com/) for hardware support or compliance issues.

The Holybro® pix32 autopilot (opens new window) (also known as "Pixhawk 2", and formerly as HKPilot32) is based on the Pixhawk®-project (opens new window) FMUv2 open hardware design. This board is based on hardware version Pixhawk 2.4.6. It runs the PX4 flight stack on the NuttX (opens new window) OS.

As a CC-BY-SA 3.0 licensed Open Hardware design, schematics and design files should be available here (opens new window).

TIP

The Holybro pix32 is software compatible with the 3DR Pixhawk 1. It is not connector compatible, but is otherwise physically very similar to the 3DR Pixhawk or mRo Pixhawk.

Note

This flight controller is manufacturer supported.
