I assume one only needs 5V, GND, Tx and Rx?
Hm, hard to say, smoetimes it can be misunderstood cause a rx have always go to a tx, maybe they only changed the naming.
The printing for serial connectons is sometimes misleading.
It have to be tested, i dont think they changed it, there is no reason to change the standard.
As a reference.
This is how I connected the Basic Sparkfun FTDI board to the Flyduino. It works fine for me.

- In the current / default MultiWii code, do the 6 motor outputs needed for a Hex appear on 'PWM Out' pins 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7?
Its 2,3,5,6,7,8
The Flyduino Diagram is not up to date.
True, & updated. I also added Warthox his ppm layout as a reference. (link)
Should be something like below
I'm still not sure about the LLC, it doesn't heart but I don't think anyone uses the LLC with the FFIMU. So maybe it's better to remove it from the diagram.
