Pixhawk in hand, now about to finalize the parts – Entry 6

By | September 12, 2014

I have the flight controller in my possession now; after several weeks of hemming and hawing, I’ve decided to go with 580KV motors, a 4S power plant running 6000mah (and later maybe 2 batteries in parallel).  I will also be going with 30A ESCs.  I know I want a GoPro 3+ Hero and gimbal combo for the photography platform, but not sure if I want to tie the GP into the FPV to reduce clutter, or if I want a standalone FPV solution.
