I just received my new Pixhawk autopilot and would like to use my Dragonlink receiver with it on my Skywalker X8 flying wing. Unfortunately, I have not found any instructions on how to connect the two, and have not been able to figure it out myself. Given that the Dragonlink can output the required PPM signal through its Ch.12 pins, I connected the DL's Ch12 with the RC input on the Pixhawk. I then plugged my ESC servo connector to Ch.3 output pins on the Pixhawk, and my elevon control surfaces into the Ch.1 and 6 outputs on the Pixhawk (this is how my Futaba 14-SG is set up and it works fine with just the Dragonlink).
After powering up the autopilot and ESC, I get no servo or throttle response. The buzzer light on the Pixhawk flashes red, there is no main LED light ON (the one just below the forward arrow on top of the Pixhawk module). The little LEDs at the bottom of the Pixhawk module show: Power solid green, B/E solid orange, and ACT flashing blue.
Has anyone successfully used the Dragonlink receiver with the Pixhawk? I would greatly appreciate any help you can provide. This is all quite new to me.
