Can't connect Futaba receiver to Pixhawk Mini

I recently purchased the Pixhawk Mini. I am unable to connect the receiver.I am using Futaba receivers - R6208SB and R7008SB. When I connect R6208SB to Pixhawk mini, the led glows red for a second and turns off. When I connect R7008SB, the led glows solid red but it doesn't pair with the transmitter. I tried connecting with USB and battery, still nothing works. But when I connect both the receivers to the normal Pixhawk, they work fine. What is the problem?See More

Pixhawk and Mateksys PDB compatibility

I purchased Mateksys micro PDB. I wish to know if it is compatible with Pixhawk.  To power up the Pixhawk, a 6-pin wire is used to connect the Pixhawk to the power module. In Mateksys PDB there is a 5V supply with only 2 pins, power and ground. So do I just remove the remaining 4 wires from the 6-pin connector and connect both of them? Is that a sensible way to power up the Pixhawk? And if this works, do…See More

"Thanks. But I already saw this. Does it work properly with Mission Planner? Is Q Ground Control a better option?"

"@Chris Anderson Yes. I got that. How do I send commands to the drones so that they move together, get a formation, etc?"

Graham Dyer replied to Prashanth Rajagopalan's discussion Can the GPS be placed inside the drone?
"As Thomas said, because the GPS unit has the compass in it it needs to be kept it away from any wires carrying high DC currents and a clear view of the sky. DJI Phantom puts the compass in one or two of the legs, I think. You can experiment and find…"

Thomas Butler replied to Prashanth Rajagopalan's discussion Can the GPS be placed inside the drone?
"GPS uses a radio receiver which operates at about 1.5ghz. As long as no RF blocking material blocks the signal (coming from satellites overhead), the GPS will receive data. RF blocking material; metal or carbon fiber (i.e., electrically conductive…"

Andre K. replied to Prashanth Rajagopalan's discussion Can the GPS be placed inside the drone?
"It can be inside, plastic does cover not affect it. If you have a magnetometer inside it that you use, you need to place it away from power cables etc"

Can the GPS be placed inside the drone?

I have drone with Pixhawk and 3DR GPS. I have placed the GPS on a mast, away from the Pixhawk as instructed in Ardupilot. I would like to know the GPS can be placed inside. I do not want it to be sticking out. I understand that it needs visibility but how are the commercial drones doing it? DJI and Parrot have their GPS inside and its not visible. Gives a good look to the drone. Do I need to buy a more powerful GPS? What is the solution to this?See More
