Your param file does nothing for me.

What I really need is a detailed step by step description of what you are doing, why you are doing it, what your expectations are, and what are the results.

Another important piece of information is a detailed parts list including motors, props, ESCs, RADIO GEAR, and any other accessories/devices you may have installed.

Pictures showing how every thing is connected and a video showing how the aircraft behaves will be extremely helpful.

The drone is powering up, but not powering down when pulling the radio sticks again, at half trottle, the power of the rpm of the motors is visibly the same, than it shoots up exponentially...

Am attaching my param file maybe it helps you understand the issues.
Much appreciated

Because no two aircraft are ever exactly alike, the sharing parameters and settings is ill advised.

What is the nature of your problem?

Hi people,

Anyone capable of sharing a DJI S1000 with pixhawk full parameters list please?
thanks in advance

Hi Pixhawk Fans,

For all of you interested in the Internet of Drones platform which we are developing, please join to this group
Among the many benefits provided by the platform some are:

1. Remote visualization of the drones flights including others than your own

2. Routes planning and remote control of own drones, from any place where the internet access is available
3. Evaluates risk assessment for the planned routes

4. Alerts for the potential colision, drone malfunction, entering restricted space and others

5. Encrypted connection with the drone (optional for downlink)

6. Manage your drone(s). In case of larger fleet, the drones can be gouped by purpose

7. Visualization of the flights history

8. Data sharing among the drones for the detected objects in airspace

9 .Displaying dedicated airspace for drones (in later version as this will be specific to countries which currently in most of them is not fixed)

The first version of the DroneRoute device will support Pixhawk flight controller

I have just acquired an Iris 2, and was wondering what's the latest firmware I can use on this platform, or, can it use all the latest firmware updates? Also what mods are now available for it or should I look into?

Most items I'm buying from Hobbyking.They doing well in Europe.

I use this site for regular electronic components.  Not for the strictly RC stuff.

Any suggestions on one- or two-stop shopping for miscellaneous electrical components like buttons, switches, LEDs, connectors, power cables, etc.?  I can track down any of these parts individually, but it would be nice to get most of them from just one or two reputable sources to (a) reduce the time I spend hunting and comparing, (b) save shipping,  and (c) guarantee relatively prompt delivery to a US address. 

I imagine there might be one source that specializes in drone- or RC airplane-specific parts (e.g., XT60 connectors, servo extension cables) and a second one that is a go-to for general purpose electrical/electronic parts (e.g., toggle switches, LEDs, etc.).

Thanks Klaus, I guess I'm the 1000th member.
