I apologize if this should go somewhere else on the forum, but the question does contain specific questions about mission planner. Also, I’m a complete novice to this field, so some of my questions may seem silly.
What I’m trying to do
I’d like to get a racing copter, something similar to the Alien 6". I want to get it as close to 100 mph as possible. I’m not set on any hardware yet, but that’s just the general frame idea I have.
I’d like to set way points on Mission Planner, and have it go from point A, to point B, as quickly as possible. I don’t care about going through obstacles, and I’m not actually racing this against anyone, I simply want a UAV to go as quickly as possible, from point A to point B, in a straight line. As a bonus, it would be cool if it could turn around slowly, and come back…but going from point A to point B is the only requirement.
What problems I’ve run into
From what I’ve read I need to use a racing Flight Controller, but the closest thing I’ve seen to a racing FC that is Mission Planner compatible is the Pixracer.
My real questions
Has anyone seen anything like this attempted with Mission Planner?
Am I correct in saying that Pixracer is the only racing FC (or ultra lightweight FC) that’s compatible with Mission Planner?
Any help is appreciated.
