ELEV-8 v3 Quadcopter and Flight Controller

The ELEV-8 v3 product line is retiring; quantities limited to stock on hand but Open Source Design Files are available for download.  The ELEV-8 v3 Quadcopter Kit was engineered in the USA to give you freedom to learn and experiment. The robust design is manageable to build, customize, and maintain - no soldering required. Explore our ELEV-8 Online Tutorials, and click here for ELEV-8 v3 Software and Downloads.

The heart of the ELEV-8 is our Flight Controller with an on-board Propeller P8X32A. The multi-core architecture of the chip allows simultaneous sensor monitoring and motor control. Multiple cores and modular C-language firmware ease code customization—without interrupts! GroundStation software aids set-up and tuning, and provides live sensor data for studying the physics of flight.

The ELEV-8 v3 Quadcopter is a Parallax open-source project. The kit includes airframe, Flight Controller, Power Distribution Board, firmware, and GroundStation software. Files are accessible from the Downloads section of the individual product pages.  While it is excellent for learning, the ELEV-8 v3 is not a toy. Improper or negligent use can cause bodily injury or property damage. Recommended for ages 18 or over.
