Well, one might expect a product with a number that is greater than a previous product (so pixhawk 2.1 compared to pixhawk 4)should be an improvement or like a “next generation”
Very surprised to find the Pixhawk 4 today in the mail (I ordered 2 of them) and at first look, not very impressed:
- GPS module is missing. That makes it totally useless as the GPS has arm switch, compass and buzzer build in.
- Huge Power Management board. Even bigger that the Pixhawk 4 itself. Not in a case, totally unprotected. Looks nice for Muticopters, but for Plane???
- Specifications of the Power management board? 120A. Connector soldered on the wires? XT-60. seems like a joke…
- Documentation? Well, almost non-existing.
Will try to get the GPS modules shipped, but I have serious doubts on the useage of the Pixhawk 4. Gonna stick to the Pixhawk 2.1 for a while.
