SmartAP PDB (Power Distribution Board) is a special board which allows transferring the power from the battery to ESCs / Motors and generate power supply for the flight controller and other peripherals with different voltage levels. Also, PDB provides the functionality for battery voltage / current measurements. SmartAP PDB makes high-power lines connections easier and much more reliable.


  • Size: 65x65 mm, four 3mm mounting holes

  • Input voltage up to 60 Volts (14S)

  • Capability to handle extremenly high currents (peak current up to 400A)

  • Power input from the main battery, possibility to connect up to 4 independent batteries

  • 12 pairs of pads (6 on top, 6 on bottom) for powering up to 12 motors (all possible airframe configurations supported)

  • Integrated voltage and current sensors

  • Integrated DC-DC converter from 10-60 V input (up to 14S battery) to 5V output to power peripherals

  • Integrated DC-DC converter from 10-60 V input (up to 14S battery) to 12V output to power peripherals

  • 5V and 12V power output terminals (standard 2.54mm/0.1" connectors)

  • Integrated loud electromagnetic sounder (buzzer)

  • Power output for the flight controller (both 5V and battery VIN)

  • Fully compatible with all SmartAP Autopilots

Manufacturing process

At Sky-Drones we pay the highest attention to the hardware design, manufacturing, inspection and quality control. Reliability of the drone is directly affected by the quality and reliability of the hardware inside. Here is the video to demonstrate you the major steps of our hardware being born at the factory in the United Kingdom before it's shipped to our customers and ends up flying on their drones:
