I’m trying to find out what I need to buy in order to do simulation in Gazebo with px4. The Pixhawk 3 Pro would always be connected to a companion raspberry pi and any telemetry would be sent through the pi, not wirelessly.
What I thought I needed were just these two items:
Do I need others?
Regarding supplying power module:
I already have a variable DC power supply (30V, 5A max) with some banana to XT-60 cables so I can provide battery level voltage but I’m not sure how to properly power the Pixhawk 3 Pro. Since the power supply can handle up to a 6s battery would 24V be ok or should I limit it to 22V?
Regarding connecting to a simulator I have two unknowns:
- How do I connect the Pixhawk 3 Pro to my raspberry pi? I can already connect my pi to my dev computer.
- Using Mavlink how do I send commands to the Pixhawk 3 Pro and receive telemetry and debug data from from the Pixhawk 3 Pro? I do plan on purchasing the RTK+ GPS at a later date.
If the first question is all you can answer then I’ll just buy those two things. Thank you for your time.
