I’m thinking about using Kakute F7 for my next project. My idea is to install Ardupilot on it, connect a RPzero as companion computer and control the drone from a ground control station using DroneKit-Python to define via code some kind of missions to be executed by the Drone. Despite I’ve been reading here and there, I’m not really sure if all that is possible. My questions are:
First of all, is that possible and how difficult would it be?
Can you suggest some guidelines to follow?
I think Kakute has already everything needed for the autonomous flight. If I understood correctly, what I additionally need/want to do/add is the following:
- Add a GPS (like the bn 880 gps) and connect using the SCL/SDA/etc pins on the KF7
- Add a wifi module to the Raspberry Pi via UART - this will my access point to the drone from the ground control station (that is simply a Python script with flight instructions)
- Add a 4-in-1 ESC to drive the motors
Is there any wrong / non-sense assumption above? Any feedback is very welcome
Thanks a lot
