The PX4Pilot is one of the most advanced autopilot systems available on the market today. It is a professional level autopilot system used by researchers and others where autonomous and/or out of line of sight operations is required.

Available with support for almost any type of vehicle, aircraft or vessel, the PX4 open-hardware project is supported by a number of development communities making this one of the most flexible and reliable platforms for remote/autonomous vehicle control in the world.

Key Features
• 168 MHz / 252 MIPS Cortex-M4F
• 14 PWM / Servo outputs (8 with failsafe and manual override, 6 auxiliary, high-power compatible)
• Abundant connectivity options for additional peripherals (UART, I2C, CAN)
• Integrated backup system for in-flight recovery and manual override with dedicated processor and stand-alone power supply (fixed-wing use)
• Backup system integrates mixing, providing consistent autopilot and manual override mixing modes (fixed wing use)
• Redundant power supply inputs and automatic failover (backup system)
• External safety switch
• Multicolor LED main visual indicator
• High-power, multi-tone piezo audio indicator
• MicroSD card for high-rate logging over extended periods of time

I have 3 of these now and no problems with any of them. They have done over 100 fully autonomous missions flawlessly. Very easy to program in QGround Control or Mission Planner if you desire. Forget those F3 and F4 boards if you want to be serious. 3 of my buddies are also very impressed and have bought several each as well. No problems encountered with any of them. Make sure you buy add-ons specifically designed for these PX4Pilots (Pixhawks) and you won't have any problems.

Had a few issues with bad accelerometer error with this board during its pre-flight checks but id reboot it and it would be fine. Been getting IMU Mismatch = FAIL - Check vibration or accelerometer calibration. (Mismatch: 5.63, WARN: 0.75, FAIL: 1.50) error while flying and quad would then pitch violently forward almost a second later. Check for motor, ESC, and vibration issues and all checkout fine. Put in my trusty APM 2.7 and flies great. Put this FC back on and issue happened again this time was not able to save the quad. I strongly suspect and intermittently faulty accelerometer.

Seems to work, tomorrow I will start installing it in my Zeta Sky Observer.

There had been some problems with updating to ArduPlane with my Ubuntu 14.0 LTS Machine. The FW was erased but not uploaded later. I tried alot but nothing worked. APMplanner2 was not able to bring the FW up.

Than I used a Windows 7 machine with Mission Planner the FW could be updated, so lets see why this happend. The device is recognized as Pixhawk, PX4 something.
