I started "playing" with RC boats and it's fascinate me to be able to navigate the model by autopilot.
the most popular and user friendly to my understanding (which is not very wide in this area) is the Ardupilot.
what I'd like to have is an Autopilot which will make the model follow a planned route with waypoints. no stabilization is needed and I want to control the course and speed.
quite a long time I'm trying to read and understand what hardware I need? how to connect it? how to upload the software? what software? etc.
can someone help with a step by step instructions for that?
