Being a user of multicopters with APM 2.5 for a long time, I decided finally to change to planes and to try it with Pixhawk, but I've been faced with a few problems that I wasn't counting on.
What I want to ask is that can I connect the elevons servos of my new flying wing directly to their respective slot on Pixhawk or can they damage the controller?
I want to use the Powermodule as the primary power source to the Pixhawk. When I used the APM 2.5 on my copters I used to have the servo cables from the motor's ESCs to have the power cables removed, but now I don't know if I have to do the same with the plane's ESC (i.e. to cut the red wire of the motor's ESC), or can I connect the 2 servos and the motor's ESC directly to their respective slots on pixhawk or not?
Having the last option, will the ESC of the motor "feed" the servos or will it damage pixhawk?
And I would also like to ask if having the pixhawk working on with the powermodule, can I connect pixhawk to the pc via USB, to make tests like I used to do with my apm, or will it burn something?
I'm just too much afraid of trying to do that without asking, and having it burn. Better save than sorry, right?
I just wish the pixhawk instructions were more complete, like it is with APM 2.5/6. I know that Pixhawk is the new thing, but it has been release for over 1 year. At least the Assembly quick start in the planes section should be more complete, at least to be more explicit about what to be done with the wing servos.
Thank you for your help. I feel like I'm a newb with this again!
