I never experienced a crash due to an autopilot problem until i connected one servo directly to the autopilot.
After the incident i removed it and all flights have been perfect.
From the start i used an external 10A bec for powering the servos.
I think the onboard regulator be changed for a 3.3v @ 2A or more output
with the parallel removal  of the linear 3.3v regulator.
Even if the 5v regulator is upgraded to a high amperage one i don't think that it is wise to run
high current and noisy lines from servos  inside the autopilot's pcb.
I keep the high current path for the servos well outside the autopilot's pcb.
