Wanting to set up a long range mapping fixed wing from scratch and not sure if a rpi4 will be ok or a safer bet is a rpi3.
Would love to have multiple cameras for mapping and fpv. Say a downward facing still camera for mapping and front facing for fpv.
Maybe even a FLIR camera. I saw the rpi4 has dedicated USB and Ethernet ports for better throughput. On my wishlist is digital stabilisation, I noticed Picamera supports a stabilised mode. Anyone tested that? I thought with all the cameras, stab. mode etc the more cpu and bandwidth I would need. Hence the rpi4 is a better option.
Also wondering if I should power the rpi4 thru usbc or gpio and a 5a bec?
I’m more interested in reliability than the latest and greatest but I’m also interested in the long term and rpi4 will be supported longer than rpi3 and have more processing headroom.
I’ve come from a Parrot Disco with the 4gmod and was excited when I saw uavmatrix as when you go 4g you don’t want to go back
