    Hi,

    3DR Pixhawk is an autopilot-on-module suitable for fixed wing, multi rotors, helicopters, cars, boats and any other robotic platform that can move. It is targeted towards high-end research, amateur and industry needs and combines the functionality of the PX4FMU + PX4IO.
    More informations about Pixhawk: https://pixhawk.org/modules/pixhawk

    For 3DR Pixhawk autopilot-on-module retail price is around € 279.

    Pixhawk announce that the Yuneec ST24 receiver (use the right-hand port when looking at the connectors from their front) can be connected to the “SPKT/DSM” port of Pixhawk. The pinout is:
    • Pixhawk DSM pin 1 - ST24 RX pin 2
    • Pixhawk DSM pin 2 - ST24 RX pin 1
    • Pixhawk DSM pin 3 - ST24 RX pin 4
    A photo of the cable is provided below for reference (you can use a FrSky D4R-II telemetry cable and a Spektrum satellite cable by lifting the locking tabs and pulling the pins to create this cable).

    Denis, All,

    Do any of you have any experience with this yet?

    ...I'm going to start a standalone thread as I came across this whilst looking for an update on Waypoints/POI for the H920.

    Hi,
    I have no experience at this time about Pixhawk.
    I just know that it is very appreciated and used far beyond flying machines.
    An active community helps to develop it as Open-source solution, although Pixhawk is a product marketed by 3DR.

    http://px4.io
    I am interested as indeed I imagine others contributors of the forum that you share your experience on the subject if you go on this way ;-)

    I'm also not surprised that Yuneec develops in the future, POI and waypoints solutions for the Tornado H920 as for the new Typhoon H (POI only). The question is when ?

    Thanks for the reply, Denis.

    I think I'm going to contact the guys at Pixhawk, get an understanding of the integration, and then buy one. At that low price, I think I'm comfortable with the possibility that Yuneec may do something soon anyway.

    ...do you main that the Typhoon H doesn't have a Waypoint function? I'd assumed that's what 'Journey Mode' was... but maybe it's more of a zipline, A to B thing (still very useful)?

    Hi,
    Yes for the waypoints, I made a mistake in my last post ;-)
    The Typhoon H has front ultrasound sensor and Indoor Positioning
    System. The Typhoon H also has new flight and image capture modes
    including Orbit, Point of Interest, Orbit Pilot, Waypoints and Open/
    Close Scene.

    Following this link and have a look for the specifications of the new Yuneec Typhoon H:
