  • You get it,

    RC transmitter send commands to the flight controllers (Up, Down, Right, Left,...). Flight controller send commands to the motors.

  • So if I have a quadcopter with + configuration instead of x configuration, is the radio setup still the same but the difference is in setting up the FC through Mission Planner?

    cheers, Bruce

  • Many thanks Marc

    Follow the wiki: http://ardupilot.org/copter/docs/common-rc-transmitter-flight-mode-...

    All pertinent information is there.

    Pixhack 2.8.4 is not a Pixhawk. It is an adaptation of an old product named Pixhawk. There are recent hardware developments  more suitable for a new and evolutive project.
