CubePilot releases $39 module for FAA drone Remote ID compliance
Open-source drone autopilot specialist CubePilot is offering an affordable solution to help drone pilots comply with the FAA’s Remote ID rule. The Cube ID Serial add-on module from CubePilot is priced at only $39, making it the cheapest FCC-certified Remote ID broadcast solution for FAA built-in compliance.
Come September 16 and compliance with the FAA’s final rule on Remote ID will become mandatory for most drones operating in US airspace. Many popular drones, including those from DJI, have Remote ID capabilities built-in, but some older models need an add-on module to broadcast their identification and location information.
CubePilot’s offering is a tiny (25mm x 13.75mm x 3.5mm) Remote ID module which broadcasts information about a drone in flight through Bluetooth 5.2 dual-mode unit and supports “Serial” protocol. It is suitable for GPS-equipped drones that are to be flown in the pilot’s visual line of sight.
