Mike, I have a PX4fmu, io, ublox, and 3DR telemetry modules. I have been playing with the PX4 on and off for the last several weeks; reading sensors, running different auto scripts from SD. I am becoming more familiar with the PX4 build environment. I am very excited about what I have been seeing in the way of improvements from the active developers, but as you say it still has a little way to go before being a fully functional plug and play device. I have been coming across posts talking about the Arducopter port to the PX4. Can you point me to where I can find out more about this. Seeing that I have a better working knowledge of the APM hardware and software architecture I would like to learn more about running APM code on top of the PX4 native build environment. Thanks.
For those that have been using the PX4, do you have any updates to share since January?
We are up into July now so any update one the PX4 and how its developing?
How is it now comparing with APM2.5+? What I am interested in is to have a board that the baro and mag sensors are separate from the board so they can be mounted similar to the DJI system and have them well up away from RF noisy cables ect.
I see the APM2.5 with Arducopter 3.0v now has issues with the mag when setting the compassmot and seems the obvious fix is going to be to eventually to have the baro and mag separated off the board. If not then there is going to be limitations on how your hardware can be setup.
