What are your opinions on the PX4 Flight Controllers, in buying them from 3rd parties? Also how do you think the Pixracer compares to the Pixhawk in terms of autopilot capabilities?

I have been researching the PX4 Flight Controllers for only a few months, but am impressed by the amount of features the open-source controller seems to offer.

I was wondering if the flight controller really is as good as it is advertised, with autopilot capabilities, return to home features, and hovering, and what your experience with the controllers have been?

I was also wondering if since the controller is open-source like Arduino, if buying it from 3rd parties on banggood, aliexpress, ebay, etc, is reliable in terms of quality?

Finally, due to it's cheaper price tag, I was wondering if the Pixracer has the same features as the Pixhawk and Pixhack controllers, since they all run on the PX4 firmware.

Any advice, information, and experience is very helpful.

Thank you ver much for your time.

 PX4 Pix hawk Flight Controllers is the original autopilot, all current technology cam from ! Yes it open-source platform like Arduino!  buying it from 3rd parties on banggood, aliexpress, ebay, is up to you they will not support the product if you have issues! Better to buy form a source that can offer you support or is knowledgeable about the platform.  Watch out for price being too low sometimes they are sold with subpare sensors to bring down the price!  Pixracer is the same platform with less options for connecting Parsifal to ports same controller !  

Thank you very much for the information!

Could you expand a little on the quote, less options like how?:
