"How are you powering the PixHawk? It sounds like the red wiring is powering the PixHawk. I had the similar setup on my APM and 1 ESC got hot. As long as it was flying it was ok. Sitting on the bench it would get really hot."

Hi Richard,

My apologies for not getting back to you sooner.

Unfortunately I have been very busy lately looking for contract work to supplement my retirement income and helping to support the ArduRover User Group.

Since you work in Davie during the week, maybe we could meet up at my place at the end of one of your work days?

Regards,

Tom C
