The A3 Flight Controller offers a robust control algorithm to adapt to wide range of aircraft without manual tuning. It includes a built-in Lightbridge 2 receiver and 8 function channels, including 4 configurable direction channels. Working together with advanced diagnostic algorithms, the A3 Pro* analyzes if GNSS or IMU unit failure occurs during flight. If so, it seamlessly switches to another unit to maintain reliability and precision.

This flight controller supports quadcopters, hexacopters, and octocopters using a 400Hz frequency and the Ronin-MX. An impressive feature is how a hexacopter or octocopter can land safely using the A3 Controller in the event of propulsion system failure due to a fault-tolerant control system. It also offers DJI Smart Battery Protection and Motor Overload Protection.

New altitude determination and multi-sensor fusion algorithms improve the A3s control accuracy. The robust control algorithm enables the A3 and A3 Pro to be adapted to a wide range of aircraft without the need for manual tuning.

*Upgrade the A3 to A3 Pro by installing 2 upgrade kits.This will provide you with triple modular redundancy with three IMUs, three GNSS units for a total of six redundancies. 

The A3 operates best with the 35 to 125 LiPo or DJI Smart Battery.

The A3 series supports D-RTK GNSS for centimeter-level positioning accuracy compared to a normal GPS and barometer solution. Using dual antennas, its heading reference is more accurate than a compass sensor. It is also able to withstand magnetic interference from metal structures.
