Hi Cala,

There are a number of Developers, including myself, who have Pixhawk 2s manufactured by 3DR. The availability of the Pixhawk 2 from 3DR is very questionable as Chris has stated that 3DR is leaving the DIY business.

I believe that Philip Rowse is trying to identify a manufacturer to build the Pixhawk 2, since it is an Open Source/Hardware navigation controller, and then it will hopefully become available for sale to the DIY community.

What is the stage of Pikhawk 2 as alone controller?

Hi All,

I believe that we are plowing new ground here and now is your chance to move on to the Pixhawk 2 as a navigation controller.

If anyone in the Group has a better picture of the Pixhawk 2, please send it to
