    Hello,
    My FC is Pixhwak and I used QGroundcontrol to set it up. It is using PX4 firmware.
    Will flight deck work on my QX7? I have the S8R receiver.
    Thanks!

    Hi Andre,

    FlightDeck uses the passthrough protocol found in ArduPilot, which is not implemented in the PX4 firmware.

    There is a workaround which is the use of a MAVLink to passthrough converter: http://www.craftandtheoryllc.com/forums/topic/does-this-work-with-the-px4-pro-stack/

    Otherwise, if you don’t have a compelling reason to be on PX4 firmware, I would certainly recommend using the ArduPilot firmware instead.

    Hi,
    Thanks for your reply!
    I tried to load Ardupliot in my Pixhawk, but after I load the firmware, I try to connect using Mavlink via USB, I get a stupid error message. I tried to get around it, but I couldn’t. I even tried in different computers, but got the same error.
    The only thing that worked for me was QGroundcontrol using its firmware.
    I will test your suggestion and let you know. If it works, I will buy your software.
    Thank you,
    Andre
