Pixhawk no power to GPS after board is turned on. (SOLVED)

Hybrid V2, making a multirotor plane hybrid with everyday Rc equipment.

The goal is to make a multirotor hybrid using only hardware mods, and simple ones, i am trying to avoid belt drives etc.

The Brown one is 3000Mah, the white one is 4000Mah
