I need to make a pixhawk accept 10 separate RC channels. 3 axis flight, 3 axis gimbal, flight mode, zoom, landing gear, and a panic button. I have also created the zoom function in the pixhawk but need to find how to set the channel for it in the mission planner. The flight and gimbal is also meant to be controlled by separate remotes.
Plan B for this which I am not sure the Futaba remotes I have are capable of is to send the gimbal control through the flight one and combine the mode, landing gear, and panic button channels into one and separated again by the pixhawk. This does bring it down to 8 channels and a single receiver that the pixhawk currently likes but presents its own issues.
