I ordered this system and received it today. Super easy installation, but couldn't get me camera to work. I also have a GoPro adapter cable, so I tried it and the video worked. After some…Continue

X8 with pixhawk - props spin as soon as X8 is armed

Hey everyone. In the past I've built a couple quads and hexes from 3DR using APM2.5. I recently bought the RTF X8. I didn't choose to include radio and receiver but instead to use the DX8 I already have.

"I've never used an Android device, just curious how the telemetry board and antenna plugs into the tablet. Do they come equipped with USB? I'd love to be able to take something as small as a tablet to use instead of a bulky laptop."
