"@dr0n3droid Thanks again.I'm starting to consider this option, attopilot+voltage regulator, for I'm frustrated in trying to buy a PM in europe, instead of trying to go for the higher voltage LiPos. It's the third attempt in buying one…"

"@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."

"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"

"Very nice. I've been using, and will use 4S 5000mAh turningy nano-tech batteries. With the old frame they reached easily 15 minutes. With the new frame I intend to have the same, I hope! How have you installed the PixHawk in the F550? Directly…"
