PPM input for Solo?

Hi everyone, I would like the Pixhawk 2 on my Solo to accept PPM inputs. How can I interrupt the Spektrum process running on Solo so that it can accept these PPM signals? The reason I want to use PPM signals is because I want to control Solo's yaw and throttle in flight. I will not have GPS support, but I can't use guided_nogps mode because that's not supported in Solo yet, as far as I know. Maybe there's a better way to control the yaw/throttle? I tried using mavlink commands first, but because Solo doesn't support the ones I need, I've turned to PPM input. I'm open to suggestions, though. Thanks.

    There are two ways of doing this
    1. Kill the RC process, (or rename it...)
    Or remove the pins from the iMX6

    Either way will do.
