    Hi all,

    I want to make a quadcopter with camera and logic board on it.
    Main idea is to take input from camera, process it and then decide where to fly.
    My thinking is that camera input processing should be done on raspberry pi or similar device.

    The question is which flight controller to use. I've tried to make custom one with Arduino+MPU9250, based on this github repo, but I never succeeded to make it fly.

    Main requirement for controller here is to be able to receive input from raspeberry pi.

    Sorry to be so late, but you could use any flight controller if you just outputted PWM (or any receiver protocol really) from the Raspberry Pi via an Arduino. You would not need o deal wit things like stabilization, just the basic four flight controls through the receiver input.
