A message from Chris Anderson for what it is worth:

"Just to clarify, Pixhawk is still very much supported and sold, and indeed there will be a new improved Pixhawk coming out in a few weeks."

The rumor is that it will be a PixFalcon manufactured by HK. If it is, I was given one for evaluation and IMHO it will be good for only a small quad given the accessories that came with it.

Are the PCB files available for members to build? I'm keen to build one if possible.

Very interesting. We would be keen to see this.

IMO there aren't that many companies in China that have the mindset or means to produce a high quality FC, but from the posts I've read at RCG, CUAV seems to be very picky and protective of their products.

Hi All,

Since this Group was created to promote the Pixhawk2 stand alone controller, of which 3DR has no interest, further speculation as to a future name change or whatever path 3DR chooses to take to promote their brand of navigation controllers will not be in the best interests of the Group at this time.

Hi Philip,

Thanks for the pictures, much appreciated.

I have changed the Group Avatar to the "Cube"

Thank's Tom to clarify. Can you share a connectors photo? Is like wires problem isn't resolved in Px2 yet? 

Comment by Philip on February 17, 2016 at 2:20pm
I sent you a bunch of pictures via email.

And yes, I am hopeful of being able to make an announcement this week!

I will be brining Pixhawk 2 stand alone to market (or assisting a third party)

Hi All,

Please feel free to chime in on the Comment Wall as to what you think about trying to make the Pixhawk 2 available to the DIY community.



Comment by Thomas Stone on February 17, 2016 at 1:45pm

Thanks, Thomas! 

I am super-excited about this. I foresee more sensor development and testing in my future. :)
