Pixhawk meltdown. Please take a look!

Almost lost the quad today. I found it about a mile away from the field. Took it apart trying to download the logs to find out what the H happened. 

RTF 3DR Quad 

replaced APM 2.6 with Pixhawk

880kv motors

3DR Radios

Any Ideas from the forum would be great!

  • It's not a meltdown, its a poorly soldered (flowed) voltage level translator.

    Most likely fell apart on impact, but cuch light component should not get ripped off before heavier components, and - it's clearly not flowed correctly - jusging by the pads.
