Planning Bat Bone Tricopter Build - Electronics Design

I'm planning a Bat Bone Tricopter build and wanted to see what you think about my electronics design. I am using the PixHawk flight control because it fits in some other plans I have for this tricopter and potentially another multicopter. I have found precious little quality pinouts and drawings so I thought I'd try to draw this up proper and share that.

I'm not sure this version is correct so any feedback is much appreciated.

Thanks!

10\14\14 - Edited drawing to show connection to ESC and PDB based on feedback

Sounds good to me, just that the outputs 1,2 and 4 of the Pixhawk are going into the ESCs, not into the PDB.

Edit : Nevermind, didn't see that the 3DR PDB got plugs for the signal
But then it's missing the wires between the ESCs and the PDB on the drawing.

Good catch... I'll add that into the drawing. Looks like all the components are right and I'm not missing anything major which is good too. ;-) Thank you !
