Getting Started

Drone Development 101

Users can get started with developing PX4 systems by purchasing a hardware developement kit. We have a variety of recommended platforms from our ecosystem partners, ranging from DIY kits to RTF(Ready-to-Fly) vehicles. If you’re unsure about how to choose the suitable hardware for your objectives, feel free to reach out to our community channels.

Simulation is a quick and easy way to start flying with PX4 when you haven’t yet got a vehicle to experiment with. It allows PX4 flight code to control a computer modeled vehicle in a simulated virtual world. Simulators are used extensively as a developer tool from the most basic to the most advanced systems.
