    This was my first flight with my rebuilt Tarot Iron Man 650, and the first time I have flown using the Pixhawk flight controller. It is very different from the Naza's I am use to flying.

    I'm building an autonomous drone at the moment, with the PixHawk as the flight controller. It uses an optical flow module and GPS for stabilisation, so it was interesting to see your flight.

    They can do a lot and with it comes some programming I now know. I ran into a little issue powering the ESC's, and now the 3DR radio for telemetry. It connected, then it disconnected and I can not get it to reconnect. Did exactly the same thing with two different radios so it is either me or the firmware which I have reloaded several times.
