I have a real mix in my head right now. Trying to understand what are pros and cons of ardupilot, px4, pixhawk, navio2, erle, pixhawk2, software, hardware… I cannot decide what is better for me which is very unique in other products you can compare something or go to PC world and check laptop, smartphone or whatever, here I am a bit lost.
What I need drone for:
- It will be a project which I want to blog about. All my experience positive and negative.
- My idea is to build a drone which do ‘something’ it is not yet fully determined but I would like to create a basic autonomous drone which automatically will be able to flight inside and around my house. To do that I would like either be able to control an autopilot with my raspberry pi or be able to get a source code extend it for a functionality and download to a drone.
- It need to have as much as possible sensors including GPS (I live in UK in very cloudy area I would prefer to have a not bad GPS module).
- I am planning to work on small android control panel which will be communicating with the drone over wifi so it also must have wifi module.
To let you know I don’t have anything at all. I will be building whole drone from scratch.
I am considering:
APM vs PX4
Navio2 vs Erle
