PIXHAWK Gumstix Camera makes it to product!

Posted on March 1, 2011 at 6:44am 10 Comments

The design we pioneered in 2009 for machine vision with Gumstix Overo is now finally available as product from Gumstix. They did a great job of converting our initial raw open source design into a usable product, our internal prototype made it not beyond basic sensor readout routines. The picture on the top shows the finished Caspa board, the image on the bottom one of…

Posted on February 27, 2011 at 11:30am 19 Comments

Please note that the video shows only a snapshot, not the final QGroundControl 0.8.3 release version (we're still improving it on a daily basis). User feedback is very welcome, if you want to try it yourself you can…

Hello! Do you have experience with ardupilot? Have you gotten any integration with ROS over mavlink?

If you can help please respond here:

Hi, is the ros-mavlink-pkg still being maintained?

It seems there are issues in ROS Electric/Ubuntu 10.04+:



Also, are there any plans to add documentation?

Hi there,

I was wondering if it is possible to order assembled Cheetah or other quadrocopter kits (rough cost estimate?) at this time or if you plan to make one available later in the future?

When will it be possible to see new pixhawk autopilot schematics ?

I need some suggestion from Pixhawk.

I am thinking to use Pixhawk to make some big UAV helicopter. do you think current version of firmware of helicopter is mature enough to handling a big helicopter? 

When I am taking big helicopter, I am thinking about a nitro helicopter within 2 hours duration. 30 km flight radius. 30 kg payload expectation.

Someone can give me some guide about it ?  Also a suitable air frame is not easy to find, which company produce this kind of good helicopter with a good price ? 

Thank you so much.
