I have a question: Why did you choose to power the Pixhawk 2 from the same BEC as the video equipment, rather than chain it together with the radio equipment?

Hi Colin,
How did you manage to get details of the (inverted) v-tail angle and the tail angle of incidence? And how did you pass it onto your build? I usually find it a nightmare with scratch builds.
