"Hi Ray, You should be able to arm with your ESC disconnected. The communication between the pixhawk and the esc is pwm which is one directional and gives no feedback.  Are you getting any pre-arm messages on your HUD over telemetry? Also, if…"

"After further research, I believe this is the chip. http://www.irf.com/product-info/datasheets/data/irf8736pbf.pdf ; Can any one tell me if this is the only FET? IE does this ESC only use N-FET's or P+N Fets? "

"Is there anything wrong with using this sort of hardware on the ground side of the link(s)? Just thinking it would save some airframe complexity and weight! "

"Yes RTL is great. Check that your modes are properly registering maybe? Does it budge at all?"

"Flys great on manual and stabilised, but the stock settings don't move it at all on rtl and any guided autopilots. It's too stable, needs higher pids. Does yours work fine on stock pids in rtl mode?"

Heyhey. :)

I saw that you built an hobbyking epp fpv uav plane. I'd like to equip my epp fpv with an apm2.5, but I have some worries about the config file. Did you have been able to get a working param file? Is your epp uav working well?
