A quick google looks like the pixhawk device is an autopilot. It claims to support s.bus, which is ideal for your X8R. Just connect it following the Futaba s.bus directions. As for servos, that's up to the autopilot. Generally, you connect your servos to the autopilot. After all, it is the one moving them about.

I see, you're asking about the autopilot itself. That's in the documentation for the device. Unfortunately, they are all different. You will need to configure the device for elevon mixing and it should tell you in the documentation how to connect the servos.
