我们建议开发者们获取下文描述的基本配置的硬件设备(或者相似的设备)并使用"默认" 机架 构型。



PX4 can be used with a much wider range of equipment than described here, but new developers will benefit from going with one of the standard setups. A Taranis RC and a mid-range Android tablet make a very inexpensive field kit.


  • RC controller for the safety pilot

  • Development computer


The listed computers have acceptable performance, but a more recent and powerful computer is recommended. :::

  • Lenovo Thinkpad with i5-core running Windows 11

  • MacBook Pro (early 2015 and later) with macOS 10.15 or later

  • Lenovo Thinkpad i5 with Ubuntu Linux 20.04 or later

  • Ground control station (computer or tablet):

    • iPad (may require Wifi telemetry adapter)
    • 任意 MacBook 或者 Ubuntu Linux 笔记本电脑(可使用开发用计算机兼任)
    • A recent mid-range Android tablet or phone with a large enough screen to run QGroundControl effectively (6 inches).
  • Vehicle capable of running PX4:

  • Safety glasses

  • Tether (multicopter only - for more risky tests)


Install the QGroundControl Daily Build for a desktop OS.

To configure the vehicle:

  1. Install PX4 firmware (including "custom" firmware with your own changes).
  2. 基本配置(PX4 用户指南)说明了如何执行基本配置。
  3. 参数配置 (PX4 用户指南)说明了如何查找和修改单个的参数。
  4. Parameter Configuration explains how you can find and modify individual parameters.


  • QGroundControl mobile variants do not support vehicle configuration.
  • The daily build includes development tools and new features that are not available in the official release.
  • Configuration in the airframe reference have been flown on real vehicles, and are a good starting point for "getting off the ground".
