So... Just a quick update on my DIY PocketPilot build... I ran all the sensor wires for the two sensor boards(orange, green, purple, and grey wires) and the four PWM outputs for the servos and ESC (the yellow wires), but don't follow the wiring in the pic, I have to move two of the wires. I was checking the board over for shorts and I noticed that 2 of the wires were off by one position, so I will have to move them. What I have left to do is wire up the PPM/SBUS input and connect the USB breakout to the appropriate pins. At this point I will be able to connect the PocketBeagle to it and start loading the software. Not too much of a rush as there are some minor glitches in the latest Linux version. Apparently boot times are running a little long, but they are working on it. Hopefully they work it out soon, as I really don't have much to go on this cape before it is ready to be tested. 

Stay tuned for more........
