I’m looking into building a rover, eventually use the same same system in a boat. I’ve done a lot of research and as far as I can see the Pixhawk is the “new and improved” Ardupilot. I’ve also seen some systems based around the Arduino Mega. I’ve done a couple of small projects with the Arduino UNO.
As far as I see the Pixhawk is a complete packaged system, (a very good system) where as the Arduino has to be designed and built. Basically buying a car from a dealer or building my own. Both will get me where I’m going but building your own has a bit more satisfaction.
I understand that this is a Pixhawk forum but are there any advantages/disadvantages to using the Pixhawk vs a Arduino system? Is the Pixhawk overkill for a rover?
