Hi Guys,

Its been a few years since i have been on DIY. The company i work for is starting experiment with Autonomous flying. A question asked was "What are the most common mistakes made by people using Pixhawk or any version of..pixfalcon etc.." Is it setup, lack of knowledge on MP etc etc. Any and all comments welcome. We trying to gather a bit of data for internal purposes. If this topic has been covered before, would someone mind pointing me in that direction?

Thank you in advance.

Marc
