"I totally understand your reasoning for calling it the Pixhawk 2, but from a branding and enduser perspective, I would really consider calling it something different. After all, it is going to be different from the version that is in the Solo. It wi…"
"jim_c (and others)- Are you still flying your RVjet? I recently flew mine for the first time using settings from another large wing I have. It didn't fly as great as I would like, so I'm going to try your param file. Thanks for sharing. One question…"
I finally maidened my RVJ last month and it flew... but not great. It was very pitchy, but the rolls were great. I'm wondering if I should mount the APM a little differently. It's currently on the red mount thing it came with, but this seems very so…
"It looks like there is a new disarm feature after an autolanding is complete in 3.3.0. Possibly this would allow us to switch the plane to "Land" mode (after we've manually landed) and the system will disarm after the default 20secs. I haven't tried…"

"Maybe there is a lesson to learn here... don't post a professional solution on a DIY forum. DIYers never take kindly to professional turn-key pricing. I get it and almost everyone here is correct coming from their point of view. It's just two differ…"
"Great design. I'm glad you went with the Mobius. There is a significant shortage of Mobius gimbals and plenty of GoPro gimbals on the market (albeit, none that look quite like this.) One question, though... it seems the ball has a lot of wasted spac…"
"I highly recommend using a LiFe battery over a Lipo. We used to sell these along with an adapter for the 9x radio, but no longer. I still fly with this battery though, and have for several years. The LiFe voltage is lower than a Lipo which brings it…"
"Indeed, a strange route. :) Was it real windy that day? How far apart are those waypoints? You may have too many points too close together. Possibly your GPS lock was not great and the accuracy was less than the radius of your waypoints. I would tr…"
