Very cool, well done!  Any details on how you did it, type of firmware, onboard computer, software, algorithms etc?

I am not really sure how he did it,
But I know he used ultrasonic sensors, pixhawk and arduino Mega, but I want to know how he overrides the autonomous mode of the pixhawk, never seen anyone do it before.

I am looking to develop a similar system. Can the Pixhawk code be modified without the need for an external board like an Arduino 2560 if no other sensors are required?

Devin, you can use our TeraRanger Tower for obstacle avoidance (the only board you need to integrate on your platform is our single PCB that you can see in the center of our 'sensor ring'). Here is the link to the ArduCopter docs: http://ardupilot.org/copter/docs/common-teraranger-tower-objectavoi....
