 ====== Cables ====== ====== Cables ======
  
-PX4 uses Hirose DF13 connectors, as they are small, robust and cost-effective (compared to other widely used similar cable types). +  ​Current-generation hardware uses the [[https://wiki.dronecode.org/workgroup/connectors/start|Dronecode connector standard]] 
- +  * Previous generation hardware used the Hirose DF13 connectors
-These connectors can be unplugged quite easily as shown in this video: +

-The 12" double-ended jumper wires listed here are the best value; other lengths are available but the cost difference is minimal. One quick tip - cut a 12" double-ended jumper in half to make two 6" DF13-to-bare-end cables. +
- +
-===== Battery Connector ===== +
- +
-The PX4 project recommends the XT-60 connectors ​for all aircraft and multirotors,​ as a range of batteries is available with them and 3D Robotics offers all power connections with it. It is slightly better shielded and easier to unplug compared to Dean's Ultra. +
