Electronic Speed Controller (ESC)
One of these:
Autopilot and Essential Components
- Pixracer kit (including GPS and power module)
- FrSky D4R-II receiver or equivalent (jumpered to PPM sum output according to its manual)
- Mini telemetry set for HKPilot32
- Digital airspeed sensor for HKPilot32 / Pixfalcon
- 1800 mAh 2S LiPo Battery - e.g. Team Orion 1800mAh 7.4V 50C 2S1P
Recommended spare parts
- 1 cm diameter O-ring for prop saver (Hobbyking International Warehouse)

The wiring below is valid for Pixhawk and Pixracer. Use the main outputs, not the ones labeled with AUX. The motor controller needs to have an in-built BEC, as the autopilot is not powering the servo rail.
|RC IN||PPM or S.BUS / S.BUS2 input|
|MAIN 1||Left Aileron|
|MAIN 2||Right Aileron|
The images below give a rough idea about the assembly process, which is simple and can be done with a hot glue gun.
