"Will the RFD work on the telem 2 output on the pixhawk 2.1? I have another sensor that needs to go into telem 1 because it needs the higher output. Or can I power the rfd900x with a bec?"

I am connecting through a external USB LED hookup, will try and peel off my pixhawk and hook it directly into FC see if that helps. It will allow me to update non beta firmware just will not take any beta firmwares!…See More

"Does anyone know of a store that has that connector in stock everywhere I have looked it is backordered or sold out, also wouldn't you think they would have sent it with the 900u considereing its the only way to upgrade firmware."

Pixhawk 2.1

We recently received our new Pixhawk 2.1, and boy what a bunch of changes they have done to it mainly connectors are different and they click in which is nice. I am trying to get the most current version of PX4 flight stack on it using QGC v3.0.2. I am unable to load any PX4 & APM firmware using QGC. I was able to hook it up to mission planner and get it to flash most current stable version of APM plane on it. Has anyone else had an issue with the new generation of pixhawks and flashing…See More

UAV navigation lights

As COA's get amended to fly higher so do the FAA restrictions. We recently got our COA amended to be able to fly to 2000ft AGL but part of the stipulations are navigation lights. I recently ordered this from here https://www.unmannedtechshop.co.uk/led-aircraft-navigation-lights/Does anyone have any experience with this setup or do you have an easier router? I will say my reasoning behind this was because it plugs…See More
