"@xemone that's a really neat PDB. You should have no problem going from regulated 5v output straight to the IO gnd/vin pins. If you want to be paranoid you can go in through the usb as it provides extra protection and polyfuse, but…"
"@Troy Apart from the extra cost (which sucks) getting bigger generic ESCs will give you a good solution. Just a quick warning if the bigger drone you're thinking of in the future will have low kv motors, then pick your new ESCs really…"
"It might be 1) at low RPM. Important to note that pixhawk doesn't command (or have any knowledge of) RPM, it just outputs PWM value (essentially a percentage of thrust). At low PWM values ESCs don't always respond predictable…"
"This is, how do you say politely, um, 'not entirely accurate'.
Many people (including myself) use DJI ESC without a single problem.
Many people (including myself) use Simonk firmware without problems.

"ps - please do persevere. a) It would be great to get the newer DJI ESCs working - the older ones worked perfectly, and b) they're great ESCs/motors, don't throw them away :)
The motors should work perfectly with other ESCs, at least…"
"Just a quick note - this isn't a 'pixhawk' problem - the pixhawk is a bit of hardware. It's a problem with setup of the software/firmware (px4/ardupilot) to work perfectly with these ESCs at the bottom end of the thrust…"
"It's very common for low kv motors to lose synch! There are several factors at play, but the most important is the hardware+firmware, and the setup. Hobbywing make well respected ESCs and do two specially for multirotor low kv…"
"I have the E300 propulsion set which works perfectly with pixhawk and arducopter. Have you tried arducopter? The E300 was a fantastic starter kit, they are perfectly tuned esc/motor set, have great flying characteristics and long flying…"
"@Paul what is the current best version to go with - is it your master branch with opentx 2.2.0-rc12, or best to stick with 2.1.9 for now?
I've got a lot of corruption with the status messages. Unfortunately spending all my spare time on…"
"There's a third option I'd love to see implemented here which is to adapt these lua screens to the raw frsky telemetry output from ardupilot. The likes of the pixracer have a dedicated port for this frsky output and includes the…"
"@DustinFranklin While you've gone a little donald trump/alternative facts with your marketing I (genuinely) appreciate your enthusiasm for your product. I'm putting an order in for a tx2 through the edu discount, which is a really…"
