Default Skywalker X5 with a PX4Pilot FC

I have fitted one of my X5s with a PX4Pilot Flight Controller and took it for its' first fly with this set-up this morning. Beautiful day, no wind, no clouds and not hot.
It all went perfectly. I tried Manual mode, Loiter Mode, Stability Mode and RTH Mode.
Happy enough with the results but need to slow it down a bit so I am making some adjustments to do so. It has a digital airspeed sensor so speed adjustments are fairly simple.
I need to work out how to brake my SimonK ESC to be happy.
Then, on to autonamous flights....

Do you actually fly the wing or do you program it and then the control system flies it?

I fly it, but I intend trying autonamous flight in the near future.
Fine tuning the trimming etc first.

I have another X5 that I fitted retracts to as well but I will leave it as is.
