"@gervais I asume the schematics are your work, right? I am confused by the pinouts for the 3dr radio in the setup proposal topside. If compared with other docs (http://ardupilot.org/copter/docs/common-sik-telemetry-radio.html) your pinout seems…"

"I have the pixracer working with code compiled from the master.   On my pixhawk I can use the px4flow module, but on the pixracer it fails to open the driver.  I can't find the source of the problem in the code.  Does anyone…"

"FYI... I did figure out I can connect no problem with the PX4 flight stack installed but cannot with the APM copter code. I tried installing the APM copter with both QGC and APM Planner 2.0 and in either case it won't connect so I know…"

"I just think the support is a work in progress. The PixRacer is very new by flight controller standards. I would expect as more people need / want it the respective projects will get it worked out."

"@Phillip  I installed the PX4 flight stack with QGC and it seems to work now. So must be something with my GCS or the APM flight stack. "

Richard Kennedy commented on PX4's blog post A detailed look at Pixracer
"@Phillip  I do see others having the same problem running the same amp copter code and GCS I am using so I will reach out to those developers and see if they are aware of it. In the mean time I will load PX4 with QGround Control and see if it…"

"@Richard, I am very familiar with connecting a PixRacer loaded with PX4 to a computer running QGroundControl. If you are looking for a simple confirmation that the hardware is working I can help you. The little WiFi modules do get warm as you…"

"And yet... no data transfer...??? I don't get it. The wifi module actually gets quite warm. Not too hot to touch but close.  Hope I can get a solution this was a big factor in my buying the thing. I have Taranis Telemetry so I don't…"
