Question - Can PixFalcon trigger a camera using spare PWM outputs for a Quad on M5-M8? Answer = The PixFalcon has 8 PWM motor/servo outputs i.e. the hardware is fully enabled but we all need to "ask" the PX4 DevTeam nicely to write this small code change HERE - Please take a minute to confirm your interest in this feature as DevTeam allocates resources based on demand - please ping them. In the meantime we can tell you how to setup your PixFalcon for survey Ops if purchased from us.
The "Modes" used by APM PX4 are called different names to MultiWii and BetaFlight ; So Horizon mode is similar to APM Stabilised Mode ; Headfree in wii (or Homelock in dji) is called "simple mode" in APM PX4 ; Full explanation of modes for APM is Here ; Sports Mode is similar to Acro mode but limited in bank angle unless the advanced parameter is changed.
