Pixhawk 2.1 Hardware Limitations

Hello,I wanted to ask about the limits of the accelerometer and gyroscope in the pixhawk. I wish to use the pixhawk as a flight controller for a turbine powered plane capable of speeds upwards of 100m/secs.I know this is a bit much for the poor pixhawk but I am curious about the hardware limitations of the device.If there are other more robust sensors which can be attached to the pixhawk to make it capable of supporting a vehicle at that speed, that would be great as well.Thank you,Regards.See More

"Hello, Thank you for the reply and help. I don't think I need to dive into the arducopter or px4 firmware to takeoff after landing automatically. I wanted to use the python script keeping the parameters of the pixhawk to fairly default…"

"but to perform that particular action would be enough to modify the pixhawk software, with the modification that you saw. And then you could continue communicating through scripts with the main board, or not?"

Takeoff After Landing using Dronekit

Hello,I am using a Pixhawk 2.1 Cube on Arducopter v3.6.4 with a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B running dronekit scripts. What I want to do is takeoff, go to a point and land there and after some time take off and return to the home location. I tried to run it on SITL but was unsuccessful. The quad takes off and goes to the point and lands. But after landing it disarms the motors and doesn't arm again.What I did was change the mode from GUIDED to LAND in dronekit. I ran the arm_and_takeoff() function…See More
