General question mavlink

Dear all,

I’m currently running a cube orange with px4, since it is supported with mavsdk, which works rather conveniently for me. My question is what these sdk’s/ api’s add to mavlink. E.g. would it be possible to run an ipad running mavsdk switft sending telemetry data via herelink (see also my other posts) and run ardupilot on my cube? Asking this question since mavsdk is only compatible with px4.

Any input is, as always, more than welcome!
