The PX4 Autopilot supports a wide array of Flight control hardware from many manufacturers; this post is the first in a series of reports, in hopes of creating a healthy ecosystem that fosters diversity, and also promotes the continuous support of the Dronecode Platform. We thank the manufacturers, service providers, and developers that work hard for continuing to offer a great out of the box experience of their products by using PX4.
The flight control hardware below is supported by the latest release of PX4 v1.7, and most of it is being used by our Test Team to verify flight performance and also serve as another protection layer against regressions or unintended changes. Read more on the Test Team, how to request test flights and the hardware available https://dev.px4.io/en/test_and_ci/test_flights.html.
