  • 1.  Pitot tube wanted!

    Posted 22 Aug, 2022 22:22
    Hi All,

     Our colleague, Christian North is looking for a used pitot tube... He is one of our leading volunteers who supports STEM activities. He would like to use it to teach his students.

    If anyone is interested in donating one or knows where to get a used one cheaply, please let us know!

    Kind regards,

    I've got a spare PixHawk Pitot tube.  I'll reach out.  It's this one:

    Using an Airspeed Sensor - Plane documentation
    Plane supports the use of an airspeed sensor, which can help in windy conditions, slow flight and autonomous landings. It is not recommended for most new users, however, as it does require additional tuning and adds one more layer of control to set up.
