Hi everyone ,
Here's the story .....
I'm currently building a quadcopter for my Engineering Final Year Projects...
That choice came to me after watching this video :
The quadcopter I'm planning to build will surely not perform such acrobacy , but I planning to have so interesting features ..
The Feature I'm planning to add to my quadcopter are :
1) GPS Waypoint
3) Video Transmission
4) Load Transportation (less 1kg )
5) Fail safe
I know it will not be an easy work , but I have about 7 months to do that .
I have recently done some litterature review on the topic recently , but there are no concrete documentation on the subject .
My first plan was to use a Pixhawk which would be connected to an arduino (uno) . There would be sensor connected to the arduino and when the sensor would detect and object , they would send a signal to the arduino . Then the arduino would control the Pixhawk accordingly. But after sharing this idea with some folks on the forum , it seem that it would be an enormous thing to do.
Then I had the idea of using an APM 2.6 , which allow the connection of sonar . But using the option will not allow me to tweak the source code , like an arduino. Because for my project , I have to show some level of programming .
Now I'm block, I don't know what to do ?
Therefore , I'm seeking for your help peeps. Please suggest me a solution ... I'm completely lost ..
If you need some more information don't hesitate to PM me or comment ..
Waiting for your reply ...

I think you can easily do all that with a Pixhawk. Maybe some new source code will be required. The current code and compiler is available for free so you will have everything you need.
