Proposal type: Hardware [ ] , Software [ ] , Other [ x] : Ardupilot hardware parts web shop
Description: I wonder if it would not be a good idea to have a web shop section in the Ardupilot site to sell to our community members all of the hardware parts (Pixhawk, Pixhawk2, Sensors, goodies, etc) that are best supporting the Ardupilot initiative by ensuring a high level of quality and a one stop shopping (similarly to what was the 3DR web shop that became a de facto trusted source for hardware parts). Today, since the disapperance of the 3DR “reference” it is a real pain and difficulty to roam the internet and various web sites to gather the basic parts required to build a drone that are compatible and plug and play with Ardupilot: autopilot (Pixhawk, Pixhawk2), GPS+Compass, cables with right lengths and connectors, radio telemetry, Digital airspeed sensors, power modules, optional sensors, etc.
Why thus not have Ardupilot be the front store and one stop shop that everybody would dream of as a quality sourcing and reliability insurance for critical electronics parts like autopilots ? (part of) Sales would of course contribute to Ardupilot.org.
Planned amount $$ (USD): For web site developpers to analyze.
