I have experience with fixed-wing RC planes, but zero experience with making them autonomous in any way.
I have accumulated an APM 2.5, air speed sensor, and the transceivers.
I hope to make the aircraft be able to stabilize itself, follow a path of GPS coordinates, show real-time data on my laptop, and a life feed from a camera on the plane.
What more do I need to purchase(sensors etc) in order to accomplish this?
Also, I am comfortable with coding C++ and have done some robotics via Arduino. Does anyone have some good links to threads regarding coding the APM...maybe some documentation about the built in functions etc?
Eager to become a part of this community.
