The Multicopter Flight Control Solution for Industrial Applications

Triple Redundant Autopilot

Combining three Jupiter autopilots and GPS to give you the ultimate in reliability and control accuracy.

Advanced Triple Redudant Algorithms

Combining IMU data from all three Jupiter autpilots as well as three GPS to create one accurate control loop. The Cerberus-R module constantly monitor and can detect failure in IMU or GPS signal then seamlessly calculate flight control solution using data from the remaining Jupiters.

Cerberus-R FAQ

Yes, you can set the battery level failsafe threshold via iOS, Android or PC interface.

You should install the flight controller at the centre gravity of your airframe

Any type of RF modems of 900mHz with UART connection

Any type such as S-Bus, DSM2, DSMX, JR XBus, JETI EX Bus, SRXL

Compatible with most popular radio brands such as JR, Jeti, Futaba, Spektrum, FlySky

15m/s in Roll and Pitch axis

The default password is 0000

Any quality ESC on the market with minimum range at 1050us, mid-range at 1500us, and max at 1900us. For best result we recommend ESC with 400Hz

30° on Roll and Pitch axis

Selectable between Manual, Attitude and GPS mode.

Land immediately, your battery level is reaching the warning threshold (set by you in the interface)

Check that you have correctly installed the flight controller and gps antenna. Check that you have specify the off-sets for the GPS antenna into the setup interface (PC, iOS or Android). Check that you have the latest firmware update for your flight controller.

Ensure that you have entered the magnetic deviation for you location into the flight controller via the setup interface. Also perform a magnetometer calibration.

Please adjust the “Altitude Gain”

No. You can however send your Jupiter JM-1 to us, we will update the firmware to change it into Jupiter-1r

Check that Bluetooth is turned to ON on your mobile device or use the PC interface to connect via USB
