Best Pixhawk Drones | Top Pixhawk Drones (2019)

Ever since 3D Robotics, one of the main companies behind the adoption of Pixhawk retreated from the consumer drone market, there have been fewer options for users who desire a Pixhawk drone.

Many operators prefer a Pixhawk drone for its open-source design, and flexibility, allowing the end user to easily program it and utilize its open source software and design, something that is not possible with the generally closed DJI systems.

We have compiled a list of the best Pixhawk drones currently on the market. We sell all of these affordable platforms, can customize them to meet your specific needs, and offer worldwide shipping.

Best Pixhawk Drones

3D Robotics Solo

The 3D Robotics Solo was launched in 2015, and despite being out of production for several years now, the drone is seeing growing demand thanks to its affordability, and Pixhawk open source flight controller. With a price of $499 USD, it is a compelling alternative, being less than half the cost of our next cheapest Pixhawk platform, and also being just over $200 USD more than buying a genuine Pixhawk on its own. The only downside to the 3D Robotics Solo is the need to buy the expensive gimbal and GoPro separately if you wish to capture photography through the 3DR app and utilize all the photography features this drone has to offer, something that more than doubles the cost of this otherwise affordable platform.
