Pixhawk vs APM power module.

Is there any difference between the Pixhawk and APM power modules?  I originally had an APM with the power module and have recently upgraded to the Pixhawk.  The power module is buried in the quad and it would be tough to swap it out for the one that came with the Pixhawk, so I'll only do it if there is some difference.

It seems to work fine, just curious as I couldn't find any info on a search.

    I believe that they are the same. I had an APM2.5 mounted on one of my rovers that was powered by the PM. When I swapped the APM out for a Pixhawk I used the same PM and it has worked fine for me.

    • Hi,

      does anyone know if the 3dr 6S power module has a launch date?
