About Synerduino Arduino

The Synerduino Arduino Shield can be called a Classic series Reborn adapted to use the popular Arduino UNO and Mega development board it bridges the Knowledge Gap between your basic Arduino robotics and Drone platforms. As you would be using the same Arduino to fly a mission capable drone.

Beginner Friendly

Its Light weight Programming offers Ease of use and programmability compare of other controllers of similar classes .

Capability

 Synerduino shield serves as an all-in-one flight controller essential board that fits on Arduino Mega 2560 and Uno. Equipped with all the necessary sensors, power management, and pin headers, it turns the Arduino development board into a Robotic Vehicle controller .

Is perfect for hobbyists, educators, students, researchers, and everyone who wants to learn more in building their own Autonomous platforms. Its simple Arduino shield design makes it a versatile and highly customizable to suit your Drone and Robotics building and learning needs.

    Synerduino Arduino offers an means to add on integrated features to your drone mission capability in the most Arduino DIY way

    Note: if your packing more than two sensors or additional micro controllers on to your Drone we advice to use an ESC with a BEC or an External BEC to power those sensors : see Synerduino basics guide on power setup

    Note: these are Provided as samples for users to implement their own hardware.
