Propeller Pitch

The description for these propellers are 12x45. Does this mean that the pitch is 4.5" ? I feel like a 45" pitch is unrealistic.…Continue

Hello Kate! I know this is out of nowhere but is it fine if I ask you some questions? So I'm currently working on Pixhawk and Mission Planner for a quadcopter, and (I'm sorry I'm still quite noob at this) I was wondering how it is to obtain the real time data (roll pitch yaw x-y-z accelerations etc etc) of the device from the Mission Planner. I read a lot about it and found a lot of coding in MAVLink. But I havent really worked with MAVLink before.. so can I ask how can I implement codes for obtaining those values?

Would really appreciate any form of help. Thank you!
