Flight controllers are regularly used by hobbyists and professionals on their RC helicopters, planes and drones. These controllers tend to stabilize flight by controlling the speed of the motors and can be used to great effect when controlling multi-copter drones. Since they are so many in the market, we put them to the test to find out which one is the best, so read and tell us what you think in the comment section.
10. Acro Naze 32 Flight Controller(23.99$)
The controller has MPU6050 acc + gyro and is fitted with ARM Cortex M3 processor that runs on 3.3V at 72Mhz. The board itself can be supplied 5v and has all the necessary protective circuitry.
