I'm new here and I'm looking to build an open source
quadcopter. I want to use a RC controller first, then
use the Nvidia TX2 chip for controlling it by Wifi and
playing with some scripts.
I'm selecting the different hardware components and I'm
asking myself the questions below. Could you please help
1) When I will install the firmwares inside the
Pixhawk and the ESC, do I have to modify the source
code for adjusting flight parameters and my hardware ?
Or I can just upload it and fly ?
2) I would like to have a fixed "gimbal" for my camera.
Do I have to program the gimbal ? Or without coding it,
the gimbal will be fixed and staring at the front of the
3) Are the Lithium-Ion batteries (Li-on) reached the
point where there are more interesting than the
Lithium-ion-polymer (Li-po) batteries ? I know why it
wasn't the case in the past (discharge C rate, weight,
safety, price) but I think it's not the case anymore and
I would like to use Fast/Quick charger with Li-on.
Thank you very much for your help.
Have a nice day,
