Px4 compatibility with Pixhawk 2.4.8

I intend to construct an autonomous drone using the px4 autopilot and an on-board computer. Can the px4 firmware be used with the Pixhawk 2.4.8 Flight controller? I have extensively searched the internet but have not found a clear answer. I would greatly appreciate it if someone could provide clarification on this matter.

Yes, that should generally work, although I would recommend some of the more recent STM32H7 based flight controllers such as the Holybro 6C or 6X or CubePilot CubeOrange+. They have better/newer IMU sensors, and several sets of them for redundancy, and have connectors compatible with the wider ecosystem, and more processing power based on the STM32H7 (rather than STM32F4).

Edit: the Pixhawk 2.4.8 is usually just a Chinese clone of the original Pixhawk, and so not really supported from what I’m aware of. It’s sort of up to you to figure out what works, and what doesn’t.

Yes, that should work but pay attention to buy the one with STM32F4 micro-controller, not GD32 because GD32 is Chinese version with lower price but only flash memory of 1MB, so you can’t avail all the features of flight stack due to less memory.


Point de vue de ce qui précède confirmé…
J’ai expérimenté un Pixhawk 6X : vraiment bien et soigné.
