I have been having a hard time figuring out what exactly I would have to buy to get started with Ardupilot for both a boat and also a rover.
From what I can tell I need the following.
- Flight Controller (Any suggestions for ones that are not over $100??)
- Some sort of normal RC controller with radios for it. (No idea about this either because all my other robot stuff uses XBees and a PS controller)
- Some sort of telemetry radio for Ardupilot to actually talk between the flight controller and the ground station.)
- And of course what ever servos and motor controllers to drive the actual device.
Is there anything I am missing? Also any idea where to get this stuff relatively cheap?
I have done remote controlled robots using Arduinos (Uno,Mega,ESP32) and XBees (Also wifi . bluetooth for the ESP32 based one) just trying to get started with something a bit more built up instead of constantly rolling my own code and control stuff.
