My team is looking for a precision altimeter to maintain our multirotor at low altitudes over rugged terrain. In addition, the multirotor may encounter spurious obstacles, like a tree or tree stump.
The Lightware SF-33T/B looks interesting to us, as it should offer a more robust reading over uneven terrain.
- Is this model supported by ArduPilot Copter? 1b) Do most Lightware models share a common serial interface?
- The T model (triangle beam) is intended to be mounted at a 45 degree angle. Given the current implementation, what behavior would you expect from ArduPilot Copter?
- SF-33S/B operates closer to the SF30, SF11, SF10 models, intended to be mounted nadir. What practical benefits can we see from this model over the others?
