    Hi,
    In order to be able to use all the functions of Mission Planner, Like spline, define Point of View, etc, is it possible to simply change the Walkera controller with an APM 2.6? Has anybody tried this?

    Thanks for your relplies,

    chris

    I was wondering if using the pixhawk apm 2.6 instead of the butchered one on the Tali would eliminate some of the issues with GPS etc.

    Attempting this change will brick your flight controller.

    Walkera do not use generic Flight Controllers for any of their models. They are customised to support the hardware features of the Drone.

    Cheers

    Kooltoyz have managed to do it with a 2.6 APM and an M8N GPS Chip. I will be speaking to their engineer later to try and pick his thoughts to learn more about this.

    This is a complete internal update to the Electronics. I am doing the same thing I have bought a Tali all in spares except for the motors ESCs and electronics.

    I am installing a DJI A2 flight controller and a tuned propulsion pack.

    Project is still on the back burner but all the parts I have. Doing the same with a Scout.

    Cheers

    p.s. This is not a challenging task.

    I will when I get around to it. I have a couple of dozen projects in front of this one. :)

    I will document the project here.
