Only if the battery is fully charged, leak a few volts and it'll be fine.......

What is the latest Pixhawk and...

Hi all,

I've been a long standing member of the forum, but not posted for a while. So, firstly hello to everyone that I know and everyone that I don't!

I have a number of drones mostly flying A3, A2, Wookong and Naza. I'm now building a new drone and am interested in using a Pixhawk flight controller. I'll be the first to put my hand up and say I'm quite inexperienced with anything non DJI and was wondering if someone could point me in the direction of the latest Pixhawk kit and also if anyone had any recommendations or opinions of the performance (especially in comparison to the DJI FCs).

Thanks xxx

Sorry can't help as no experience with pixhawk.
Just curious though, why change if you have a lot of experience and from looking at your work, a lot of success with DJI stuff.

Be careful when buying PX4 there are lots of them with components made from used dry ear wax, or worse.. :o

Edit.. Had an hour looking at the DIY Drones site, looks like it's much the same as 3 years ago when i last visited. Problems ,problems,problems, with lots of dick waving experts.
The hardware is STILL using DF13 connectors,FFS the are rubbish.
If you want to spend hours of farting around getting the settings right it's the way to go.
I lost count of the A/C i built with the A.P.M. it worked well until they revised the firmware to a point where it overloaded the processor. :shrug: Then the problems with the Mission planner, they removed facilities with out telling anybody, so you could spend days looking for a fault only to discover a mode was no longer running. The sonar input was one i spent hours trying to sort only to find it had been removed.
For a very good quality F/C  try the Eagletree Vector it works well and is mission capable.
My next project is stuffing one into a 4mtr sailplane. Mr Visa permitting. :laugh:

Hi Stef long time no see, we are still using the logo's you designed for us :D
I think I agree with Atomiclama why change what you already use if it works so well, I think the PixHawk is a good product but more so for people who want to tinker with open source, I havent touched mine in a few years so wouldnt know what the latest developments are here's the web site lots of info there http://pixhawk.org/  ~~
