# Vehicle Types & Setup

PX4 supports numerous types of vehicles, including different configurations of multicopters, planes, VTOL vehicles, ground vehicles, and so on.

This section explains how to assemble, configure, and tune PX4-based autopilot systems for each type (much of this setup is common to all types).

Note

Vehicle Selection provides high level information about the types of vehicles and the use cases for which they are best suited. :::

  • May not support some common vehicle configurations for the vehicle type.

The following vehicle types are considered experimental:

Note

Maintainer volunteers, contribution of new features, new frame configurations, or other improvements would all be very welcome! :::
