Have hopefully backed 2 units.

Plan to use horizontal and vertical  on my 3DR X8 2014 (on order)..

Have heard (unofficially) from on high that Pixhawk is (or will be) compatible but

cannot attest to that yet. Lidar could be a gamechanger.

Syay tuned

Can anyone tell me if the Pixhawk can use the new Lidar-Lite optical distance measuring device? It's I2c compatible, and so I assume it can plug into the I2C hub, but would the Pixhawk know what do do with it? Is is the same as sonar?

Sufal,

    Re the PX4Flow.  It's not supported by the ArduCopter software yet.  This is mentioned on the bottom of the page in the 3dr store.  Unfortunately I think it's unlikely that it will ever be supported on the APM2 due to CPU limitations and lack of spare serial ports.  I'm pretty sure it will be supported on the Pixhawk in AC3.2 or AC3.3.  I've added a warning about lack of support for the APM2 to the wiki....  Sorry for the troubles.
