I plan on starting a 450 build. The difference with this build and my previous builds is that I want to add GPS and a gimbal supporting GoPro to the quad, so I am looking for help regarding those two areas. I have already ordered some of the parts regarding the build, so this is what I have so far:
I'm using these motors and ESC for now because its cheap.. (the ESC is an extra, I will upgrade to individual 30-40A at some point).
I have not yet ordered anything gimbal related, yet.
From what I could gather so far, I planned on running iNav on the Omnibus F4 and using an M8N GPS module I found to wire to the Omnibus FC. My thoughts are the M8N module is inexpensive and iNAV is popular and provided a clean interface. I haven't put too much thought into what to buy for a 3-axis gimbal, yet. Before I get a GPS or gimbal, I would like to reach out to all of you for advice on what to buy.
What GPS module would you recommend?
I am open to using a different flight controller if need.
I can use another receiver too. I actually plan to use something with better range, but the Flysky is what I have for now.
Is there something other than iNAV that you would recommend for autopilot?
I am interested in setting pre-determined flight paths. What Gimbal would you recommend?
I have found cheap ones (non-name brand), but obviously I want a reliable one that I can take control of when I have autopilot enabled.
My goal is to build a quad exploring autopilot and GPS features. I hope I have provided enough information to start discussion. I am open to suggestions.
