The Synerduino Kwad Drone Shield is 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 flight controller. The Drone Shield is perfect for hobbyists, educators, students, researchers, and everyone who wants to learn more in building their own drones. Its simple Arduino shield design makes it a versatile and highly customizable to suit your drone building and learning needs minus all the tedious wiring. Simply connect it to your Arduino board, upload Multiwii (flight controller sketch), connect the drone components, and you are ready to fly.
