@Philip - have you considered releasing an identical version of the Solo Pixhawk2 as a replacement part? This might be a quick way of getting a foot in the door so to speak and smaller manufacturers could make it in small quantities with less concern about high volume pricing (yes I'm volunteering :). Any update on the status of the housing plastics? Would you like a new design? It might be cheaper anyway - from Tom's pictures I guess less than US$5k for the tooling and a few hundred shots based on the sort of pricing we get out of China.
Supplier chain is in motion! more info to come soon.
Very excited to see how we can migrate the FC of our existing DIYDrones quad frames and IRIS+ frames to support the Pixhawk 2, also if there will be recommended quad frames for those entering this hobby. Very cool! :D
very good news! i hope europeen customers will not be forget..

Without wanting to interfere, but ideally if there is a redesign for a cheaper housing option, if it's not to much trouble I'd like to see a housing that is less high ie not a cube. But only if it's not an issue to do so. Together with the carrier board this is getting to around 50mm high, which is higher that some Quad frames and even some wings like the Z2. Flat and more area instead is probably less an issue than height IMHO on most DIY builds. eg my current CF 250 quad is only 16mm high... ;-)
BTW Philip do you have any feedback on my previous post regarding the types of carrier boards that will be available with the PX2, as this will ultimately dictate actual space requirements. Thx.
do you have an idea when it will be available and the price range?
Thx for the options and info Philip. The OBC project requires independent hardware failsafe (IO) so Pixracer n Co are not options without extra hardware.
One last question: can the PXH2 be attached with screws as well as the DF17?
Me to Felix,you have the best shop for original Pixhawk in EU...
