Just a brief background.
I’ve been flying heli’s on and off for several years without the use of any stabilization. I didn’t really get into 3D stuff, just general fun flying with the loops, rolls, flips etc scattered in the session…typically fly 50-90 size nitro with some 600 electric thrown in there…so not new to heli’s.
What I am new to is drones and can use some guidance.
I have a project that I want to work on which will require a flight control system with the use of camera/ OSD functions. From what I can tell the pixhawk or the APM 2.X will fit the bill for my needs today. What I’d like to do is use my current gear so I don’t have to run out and buy another TX/multi platform.
The issue I see is that most controllers seem to only deal with muli’s which doesn’t appear to be the issue with the aforementioned controllers. What does seem to be a problem is what controller I need. It seems that I need an 8 channel controller with a dial/slider adjustment on one of those channels…is this a fact or just a benefit?
So, the question at hand- Can I use the DX7(older) with the Pixhawk or APM 2.8 and a traditional bird. I plan on using an older Trex 600 but also have a 50 nitro and 90 size nitro to use as well…though I’d think the vibration of a nitro would rule that out.
any help getting me started would be greatly appreciated.
