Hi, do you know whether the Pixhawk autopilot can control the UAV with 50kg of weight and 300km/h of maximum speed ?

Technically yes, but given the open-source and experimental status of the code, you might want to invest in a sturdier system... at that speed any error will result in catastrophic failure and possibly cause harm to someone.
You also need an on-board computer to help keep control, as the MAVLINK radios won't be able to keep an uplink. Same applies to a hobby-grade radio system.

@XiaoHuiGitHub short answer is NO.
