MP2128LRC2 Enclosed Fixed-Wing UAV Autopilot 900 MHz is equipped with full airside and groundside UAV system components, the MP2128LRC2 is MicroPilot’s premium UAV autopilot package. This long-range communication (LRC) autopilot provides an integrated, redundant, long-range data communication link. With this feature, operators benefit from greater distance and flexibility.

MicroPilot’s LRC enclosed autopilots are lightweight, yet protected with a rugged aluminum enclosure. This autopilot is for fixed-wing vehicles and comes with a 900 MHz frequency radio modem to fulfill the requirements of your area of flight.

The LRC ground unit uses standard, off-the-shelf radio modems with three popular frequency band choices (see below), as well as versions for either fixed-wing or helicopter. This product adds RC control information to the existing GCS datalink and a second redundant datalink, which reduces possible failure modes. In addition, LRC units provide automatic emergency override.

The LRC is lightweight, yet enclosed in a rugged aluminum housing that protects its sensitive electronics. What’s more, these electronics are convenient to install on a variety of airframes.



MP2128LRC2 Enclosed Fixed-Wing UAV Autopilot 900 MHz features:

  • The LRC’s 1-watt data radio modem provides reliable communications for telemetry and GCS-originated control at a range greater than 10km
  • Fly-by-radio modem capability lets you manually pilot your UAV to a range greater than 10 km and is compatible with off-the-shelf JR and Futaba transmitters
  • Dual radio modem design allows for two distinct frequencies for manual control due to RF interference
  • Redundant microprocessors provide manual control even in the event of a complete autopilot failure
  • The LRC’s small, low-weight but rugged aluminum enclosure protects sensitive electronics and is convenient to install in a variety of airframes
  • By preventing interference with other UAV subsystems, the aluminum enclosure provides optimum EMI/RFI protection that simplifies integration
  • With three control modes including autopilot, manually piloted and emergency direct servo override, you can be confident that your UAV will perform in all scenarios. Automatic switch between manually piloted and emergency direct servo mode allows instant recovery
  • In the event of both autopilot and communications failure, a failsafe watchdog timer activates the parachute
  • The LRC’s high current drivers simplify on/off control of onboard devices such as lights and cameras
  • Integrating the data radio modem, ADC converters, and high current drivers into a single package dramatically simplifies your wiring harness, reducing possible failure modes
  • Aviation grade connectors integrated into package


Package includes:

MP2128g2 autopilot system, a compass module, and an ADC module integrated all into an aluminium protective casing. Available in 900 MHz or 2.4 GHz, option with dual redundant data link available. HORIZON ground control software is included.
