"Thanks @Marc - definitely waiting until the PixHawk2. Keen to try the PixRacer with the PX4 stack though as QGroundControl looks really good the way it has a staged setup.  "

"Also had a chat at the Challenge with the developers of the PixHawk2 so I might just wait until that comes out to decide.  I can load both Ardu and PX4 on the PixRacer however the 8 outputs would be handy for the gliders I want to fly."

Hi Stephen, interested in your progress with Finwing Penguin. Have you successfully flown with APM firmware 2.76? I am trying now but having altitude issues in RTL & Auto. This is my first UAV with APM, so am learning as I go. Thanks, Ben
