raspberry pi or PC controlled drone


(Hayk Petrosyan) #1

Dear Forum,

I am very new in drones can you please help me to start.

For my university project I need PC or raspberry controlled drone if possible with Ardupilot. We have small budget for that.

Can you please recommend some models which I can buy?

Is there wifi control based drone available?

And how usually the drone control is done, by which protocol?

thanks

Hayk

For the protocol you should use mavlink, probably the best implementation is http://dronekit.io/

On Aliexpress there are some kits with a Pixhawk, that was my first drone…
Or another option would be this: http://ardupilot.org/copter/docs/skyrocket.html
It should be possible to run the script on a laptop which is connected to the drone via wifi via dronekit, but I’m not sure about that…
