"I have mapped 370 ha in the last days with strong wind (>10m/s).  I started my new build without any previous test flight and was not able to atutune it. Anyhow, Arducopter and the X2.1 managed to handle 24 flights/10 hours of total flight…"

"Hi Tobias, if you are using PX4 then you need to follow the Instructions given here: https://docs.px4.io/en/flight_controller/mro_x2.1.html Otherwise the Board will identifiy itself as FMUv2 and load the wrong Firmware. Arducopter should work…"

"Hi Tobias, The instructions if you are running ardupilot are here. http://ardupilot.org/copter/docs/common-camera-shutter-with-servo.html . They will be the same as a Pixhawk. If the doc is correct then you will not need any special code but we…"

"Hi Jordi, thank you for the answer. If I understand it correctly, I will not need coding to trigger my camera from CH1-Ch6? I hope so! My parcel is held in custom since more one week, I'm hope they will process it some day ..."

"Hello Tobias,  I'm trying to recall here. The X2.1 exposes the same pins as PixHawk1, if a remember correctly, some of those pins might need custom code due to a bug or a software issue that is affecting all hardware based on PixHawk1,…"

"Hi, I ordered 2 of them because I have read that there are aux channels and that it is like a PixHawk. No I read on Github that the aux channels need custom code? Is that true?"

"Hi,I would like to buy an light and high quality autopilot with more than 6 PWM outputs to run Arducopter on it. The mRo x2.1 Rev 2 seems to me the most interesting option currently. But I can only find 3 topics about the autopilot in the forum.And…"

"Thanks for the reply Jordi. Mine has shipped yesterday , I'm curious to test it and compare the X2.1 to traditional Pixhawk . Hope that Invensense sensors will make the difference. More outputs in a smaller factor is an advantage over Pixracer."

The AUAV X2.1 is all about lessons learned. The X2 was a very successful board but there was still room for improvement.
