"thank you Bill, help out a bunch, in the controller wiki, it states that if you need to reverse a stick, it is best to do in the radio, instead of the pixhawk, How would I go about doing this?"

"That's correct, it should go from ~1100 to ~1900 in the Failsafe window. If you need to reverse a channel do it on the controller first."

"ok I changed RC3_REV to -1 and the throttle is now correct, which parameter is it for the pitch it is reversed also, I am looking in the wiki, trying to find stuff for the pitch. "

"Ok Bill I checked the RC3_REV it is at 1, for the throttle control,"

"Ok I just finished messing around with everything.  So it doesn't look like RC Passthru works on channels 1-8 as they have a 400Hz refresh rate and standard servos need a 50Hz refresh rate (at least this is what I've read so far in…"

"off subject, how do I change my throttle around, right now it is backwards, I have to pull down to throttle up, How do I change that back to normal?"

"You may have to make sure the red safety button is pressed and solid red (ready to arm). Not sure if it will pass through the PWM signals when it is still blinking red. I'll hook a servo up tomorrow and make sure it works like I think it…"

"I wasn't talking about connecting an external lost model discovery beer, but the built in mode using the pixhawk buzzer that has been implemented. As for using an external beeper, using RC7 in passthru makes sense, I am not if that works with…"

"ok I tried the 2 settings, and no sound, from the buzzer, also since I upgraded to the new version, my left stick is backwards, I have to pull down for throttle up, How do I change that back to normal? do you think it might need a BEC for the buzzer?"

Dax Hafer replied to Dennis Harmon's discussion Discovery Buzzer in the group IRIS
"Ok if you are using Channel 7, then I believe you will only need to change 2 parameters.  Go to the config/tuning tab in Mission Planner and then go to Full Parameter List.  Most likely a window will pop up warning you that min and maxes…"

"done the accelerometer calibration, I went ahead and redid the compass calibration. I would like to go ahead and put the discovery beeper on the channel 7, I am using the stock radio, I have it plugged into ch 7 of the pixhawk,…"

Dax Hafer replied to Dennis Harmon's discussion Discovery Buzzer in the group IRIS
"Alright so you need to do the accelerometer calibration before doing a compass calibration as I believe the compass uses the accelerometer offsets when doing its calibration (although I could be wrong here and please correct me if I am Bill). …"
