Default Piccoboard in a Hummingbird??

Just wondering if I decide to switch from a piccolo, will the piccoboard work with the Hummingbird? any mods need to be done? Thanks

the piccoboard is 2 esc's a mixer and a gyro into one..

basically what it does is control the main motor, the tail motor, has a gyro also and mixes the tail...

Personally I don't care for those as if one thing burns out, you have to replace the whole thing vs if you went with all seperate components, you can just change whatever you need to or upgrade individually if you wish.

Just curious, does the esc send out a PWM signal to the motor?
