Ducted Fan UAV Ardupilot

I am doing a project now in the initial stage the project is about the Coaxial Ducted Fan UAV want some guidance related to how to use mission planner and pixhawk and it work on that thing.

Did you start here:

Yes i have seen it basically i am confused it in that Pixhawk implementation how to implement it in mission planner using this

Some confusion in this case as in my design there is Coaxial configuration and flaps , as there is no such configuration is Mission planner and have no such idea how to implement this.

Yes there is.

  • FRAME_CLASS to 8 for SingleCopter or 9 for CoaxCopter

The flap setup is covered also.

But initially which firmware to choose from these for ducted fan UAV configuration having flaps at the bottom and Two rotors and where to select that frame class

You don’t select if from there. You go to the Full Parameter list and configure it. It’s not a common frame type, you will have some experimentation to do to get it flying.


I have seen the post in this the yawing motion is catered by flaps but in my case I have a two coaxial rotor and i want to do yaw by differential motor thrust by changing the thrust of two rotors how can i do this? Using Ardupilot

That case is supported in Coax Copter. Read the docs.

Dear Dave
I want to ask about Pixhawk that it support which version of the ardupilot. As i have APM 2.8 and it not support 3.5 version of it.

That board is obsolete and no longer supporeted. The last version supported was 3.2.1 from many years ago.

Pixhawk support which version any idea? and specially Pixhawk 2.4.8

Pixhawks, including that version, support the latest Rev of Ardupilot. But there are many supported boards.

Thank you for your response
