How to connect a plane's wings servos to Pixhawk without burning it?

Being a user of multicopters with APM 2.5 for a long time, I decided finally to change to planes and to try it with Pixhawk, but I've been faced with a few problems that I wasn't counting on.What I want to ask is that can I connect the elevons servos of my new flying wing directly to their respective slot on Pixhawk or can they damage the controller?I want to use the Powermodule as the primary power source to the Pixhawk. When I used the APM 2.5 on my copters I used to have the servo cables…See More

"Hey, I have a similar problem.Though in my case the telemetry seems to have it's range reduced to a few meters. I have tried uploading the frame ware multiple times with no avail. Can you propose any solutions?"

"I'm tired of waiting for pixhawk to be in stock again in european stores. What is the best alternative to pixhawk and APM as plane flight controllers? I've been told about PitLab, can someone tell more? Thanks"

"You saved me from posting exactly the same. When connecting by 3dr radio it works well in the background, but that alert prevents from having further telemetry. I think this started happening after last MP update, but I'm not sure."

"@dr0n3droid Thank you for the speedy response.Would you be kind to show me/us a link to one of those kind of regulators? Just as as an example. Perhaps it might be simpler to get one than I though. Thank you again in advance."

António Cabral commented on Chris Anderson's group ArduCopter User Group
"Can a Attopilot fully substitute a power module in giving power to an APM 2.5 and sending voltage and current readings to be sent by the telemetry? If not, what part is missing to make it complete? THanks"

Posted on March 27, 2013 at 9:00am 5 Comments

It shows in a very dummy but effective way what PID is, and hope it makes things more clear for…
