GPS mission support
The Vertex 1.3 support GPS-based waypoint missions. Missions can be constructed using waypoints in longitude, latitude, altitude, and heading. Waypoints can be pre-programmed or fed to the flight controller from the ROS environment running on the compute module.
Designed for IP40
The Vertex 1.3 is sold as a prototype for research and education purposes. meaning no (CE, FCC or other) certification is obtained.
