Use_native parameter for dronekit's connect()

Hey Guys

We have been having link timeouts then link restored periodically every 5-10 seconds using dronekit to talk to arduplane locally using NAVIO2+RPi. After much struggle, setting the use_native=True parameter in the connect() function fixed our problem and the Mavlink messaging didn’t get dropped. What does setting use_native=True do, and when/why should we use it?
