Over the past few years I have been really interested in automating stuff, I have been learning python to do the software stuff, and using Arduino to do any hardware related stuff.
With that in mind for the past 4 years, I have had an idea in my head to build a simple 4 wheel drive rover with a pixhawk / mission planner to allow me to upload GPS waypoints and run missions.
Late last year I started buying the parts needed.
- Raspberry pi b3+
- Pixhawk 2.4.8
- USB Wifi module
- FS-i6 Remote <- picked up faulty on eBay
- sabertooth 2A motor controller
- 5200mAh battery
- 4x gear motors
