Has anyone assembled this fixed-wing UAV airframe (Hugin 2.6m)?

I recently bought the "ARF combo" version of one of these:  https://www.fpvmodel.com/hugin-ii-electric-powered-uav-2-6m-platform_g46.htmlSo I got two large boxes a couple days ago with airframe components, motor, ESC, servos, and about 15 different flavors of screws, nuts, etc.  – and NO diagram or assembly instructions! Some I can figure out, but a lot I can't. And I'm not even sure everything I need is…See More

"Molex clickmate on power connector, JST-GH on others. jDrones have all those cables ready made. They also carry DF13 - GH adapter cables from 2 pins to 8 pins. Various lengths. "

"Thanks for the leads.  Could someone say what the precise connector types are on the Pixhawk2 so as to make it easier to search from them on various vendor sites?"

"Good to know. Does anyone know where to find pixfalcon connectors? I know DigiKey carries at least some of it, but t's not crimped, mght not have the same pitch, etc. Is there anywhere I can buy pixfalcon plugs off the shelf?"

Good source for connectors and cables?

I'm working on getting my new Pixhawk2 up and running in an RC plane, and I keep running into the problem that I don't have specific connectors or cables for making connections between the various components.  For example, I don't have a 3-wire cable to connect the PPM receiver to the RC IN port on the Pixhawk2.  Is there a vendor that stocks the wide variety of connectors needed for both RC gear and the Pixhawk2?  I don't mind making my own cables if necessary (though I'd prefer to buy…See More
