Is there anything good for education?
Jack, if you like me not perfectly skilled at soldering or reading electronic diagrams stay away from those like Matek. I tried those because those have very good specs and usually good pricing…
I have everything from the earliest Pixhawkes from 3 DR and the Cube orange and black. All of them were easy to install and worked instantly. I also have 2 Pixracer and one CUAV Pixhack v3, and one V5 nano. Those CUAV flight controllers are all just plug in and I always got it working immediately.
Purchasing the Matek H743 wing and the slim with the MATEK GPS M10-L4-3100.
I have Arduplane FW installed into the Matek h743 wing and the slim. But after that I struggled to get those fully working on the bench and leave them both on the shelf for later trying. I now think that I should have spend more money for flight controller who are much easier to install. I am in the minority here with that opinion but still think you like to know.
`Thank you for your reply.
I want to make my own FC!
As a beginner with Ardupilot myself, I made the mistake of plugging in servo’s in S1 and S2 without realizing there’s no +5V when using a standard servo plug. You’ll need to get +5V from somewhere else on the board for powering the servo. After that, it was standard calibrating all requirements (radio & orientation, compass etc) and all of a sudden it came to life without any errors or alarm messages.
