Does the current Px4 firmware/Mission Planner SW support using an external compass based on magnetometer chips other than the obsolete HMC5883?
As I understand, the Px4 has an internal magnetometer based on the LSM303D (which is not obsolete). Ideally, I would like to use an LSM303D based external magnetometer connected to the Px4 via the I2C bus.
Would the firmware/SW recognize and set up the right protocol?
Would two LSM303Ds (one in the body of the Px4 and one in the external compass) create some problem?
Anyone have experience using a different external chip?
