The Pix2 is automatically controlled by the spider? ;)
Great work Philip!
Can't wait to see it. Not a big deal but I wonder if it should be called Pixhawk Cube instead as 3dr does have a Pix2 albeit only for themselves it seems :[ But whatever it's called thats awesome!
re- DDF-17... are these easier to remove that the ones on the 3DR Pixhawk?
re- remove most of your wiring ...... GREAT!!!! I am a firm believer than many of the DIY issues people have are related to bad wires and or connections! The worst part too is it can be an intermittent thing which then can be a real nightmare to figure out. Seems like that will also have the advantage of less EMF potential or at least easier to consolidate.
BTW I'd be happy to test one free of charge LOL
Did you open the image RK?....DF 17 looks dangerous to remove :O
Thanks for the detailed description. I learned a lot from your description.

Guess he's the pilot :]
congrats on this product, I will be very interested in this if everything works as expected. put my name down please.
This is the Pixhawk 2, we have had to change manufacturer as 3DR do not wish to sell these stand alone. I am the designer of the version of the Pixhawk 2 that is in Solo.
We actually would have preferred to go with the 3DR manufactured version, but as 3DR refused to sell them separately to the SOLO, I was left with no choice but to find a new manufacturer.
This is the Pixhawk 2
a very ingenious way to allow for multiple custom configurations.

I totally understand your reasoning for calling it the Pixhawk 2, but from a branding and enduser perspective, I would really consider calling it something different. After all, it is going to be different from the version that is in the Solo. It will have different sensors at the least, right? And it won't be sold by 3DR. (Don't under estimate the significance of this.) Moving away from 3DR warrants a different name because, right or wrong, the name "Pixhawk 2" is very much tied to 3DR and Solo. This could be a good opportunity to differentiate a new product and a new company. I would go as far as to even suggest dropping Pixhawk, but keep the connection by using "Pix". Maybe "PixQube". And the mini version could be called the "Pixi". To you, 3DR may not "own" the name Pixhawk (Lorenz Meier does), but to the market, they absolutely own the name. --- Just a little unsolicited advice. Feel free to ignore. :)
edit: I guess I could also see this as an opportunity to steal the name "Pixhawk" back from 3DR. Regardless, it still should be called something other than what is in the Solo.
