Default Pixhawk PX4, Anyone have experiance with these?

I want to upgrade my 450 size home built quad with a better Flight Controller.

Been looking for months and it seem the base model Pixhawk around $100- $130 has the most information and support.
I want things like altitude hold, position hold (Loiter), GPS, Return to Home, and telemetry back to ground to laptop.

It seems this model has all I need, there are fancier models but I don't need those.
Any one have advise or comments?

I am looking at this one.https://www.ebay.com/itm/Pixhawk-2-4...53.m1438.l2649

Yes I own 3 of them and have several buddies with them as well. You won't get a better FC in my opinion.
I bought mine from Hobby King but they don't sell them now. Banggood has the best prices for us in Oz.
Just make sure you get the 2.4.8 if you decide.
We all fly Hobby King Dart 450s which are ideal for these FCs and are 'dirt' cheap.
I fly fully autonomous missions 99% of the time. Totally reliable controllers.
I use QGround Control on a tablet. No need for a Tx except in initial set-up.
QGC works on my Windows 7 and my Mac and iPad, but I now only use my Samsung android tablet.
You will need a wifi tx or a 915 mHz telemetry set for programming it. (Cheap) but it can be done with a usb cable. These all come with the correct Pixhawk cables and connectors.
Let me know if you need links.
