"You can use the latest PX4 and ArduPilot firmware with a Pixhawk 1, but some features will be disabled (lack of memory). "

"I was not convinced that the Pixhawk was bricked.  A quick check into my log files showed screwy looking COM port settings changed and looked like errors.  So I tried it on another computer and was able to install firmware without a…"
